Found Lonny and his company, ProNetworkBuild on Twitter. He had about 170,000 followers, so I assumed he knew what he was doing and also was aware of the Twitter rules. That was a mistake.
The agreement was for him to "take over" my twitter account for 3 months, manage it, tweet to my followers and gradually increase my followers by around 7,000. I paid him $499 upfront for this 3 month project.
Lonny didn't do anything the first week - didn't even tweet to my current followers and I started losing them. Then, during week 2, he went wild. He manually followed in excess of 500 people each day. Many of them followed back and about 50% of them spoke a foreign language. Another 20% were absolute PORN.
So after week 2, I had about 1,000 more followers - ALL of which were useless to me. He still never tweeted - just followed junk accounts and got them to follow back. To make things worse, he ruined my reputation as others could see who I was following and who followed me. It was very embarrassing.
Then, Twitter caught on. The Twitter Limit for following new people is about 100 per day. Lonny was way over this amount. After Day 15 of our "contract", Twitter suspended my account. Lonny was able to get it back. But then Twitter suspended again 3 days later for aggressive following. I had to beg Twitter to get it back. They stated if there is a Strike 3 - I will lose my Twitter account permanently.
I then fired Lonny and asked for a refund since he only had it for 3 weeks & screwed it up. He said NO REFUND! He still had 6 weeks to work his magic. I didn't want to risk losing my Twitter account, so I had no choice. He is a thief, a liar, sleazy and tries to put on an act on twitter that he's religious, tweets for good causes, etc. People need to be aware of his unethical behavior!
