Talking about @publicartfound, there is some stuff to clear up. I have about 2600 followers on twitter. The account is posting 300-400 times a day. I started the account last week and I have almost 2000 posts. From an outsider, it looks pretty official.
Heres what I did:
About 500~ followers are real. I played the black arts and bought 2000 followers on fivrr. There was some research about how higher follower counts increase follower rate, so I tried it out.
After reading this, I ran a retweet experiment to gauge the traffic. The results were pretty straight forward. I wanted to know what kind of accounts were “buyable”
[I blogged about the retweet experiment here.](http://blog.rememberlenny.com/post/90251100975/tweet-with-100-retweets-ala-fiverr )
For @publicartfound, I was getting 3-4 followers a day when I just started the account. After the follower pump, the rate increased to 15-30. I get 30-50 favorites/retweets a day.
The post frequency is based on IFTTT recipes that pull from Instagram. Its currently at an experiment stage because the quality of content is so low. Im going to do some content curation and start a recipe to pinterest. After I figure it out how to keep the quality high, Im going to create a stream images back into instagram.
The recipes are pretty simple. I wrote about it here.
Im looking to identify street art lovers with publicart.io. Everything is passive, so this technique scales.
