There is no doubt that Instagram is one of the biggest social media platforms today.
With more than a billion users from different corners of the globe, Instagram is a perfect platform for brands and individuals to showcase themselves and spread the word about their products and services.
There are a lot of Instagram growth services in the market that can help you grow your follower list and also improve various other parameters of your Instagram profile like boosting your visibility, improving engagement, etc.
While there are some great names that deliver the results promptly, there are others that should never be trusted.
These are Instagram growth services that often get into trouble and get shut down; one of these companies is Twicsy, a growth service company for Instagram. Twicsy is owned by Buzzoid.
In this article, we will review why you should not use this shady platform that only delivers fake followers among many other things.
What is Twicsy?
Twicsy is an Instagram growth service that claims to offer premium and high-quality views, followers, and likes for your Instagram profile. The platform states that it is full of various features that can boost your Instagram profile within mere minutes and is 100% safe and legal to use.
Twicsy may sound good on paper; however, it has been found that the company is always looking for ways to take advantage of its customers. The services sound too good to be true.
The platform says that they require just your username and email address – however, experts believe that this is not enough to provide the customers with the type of engagement they are looking for without having to compromise their reputation.
Poorly Designed Website
When you first enter the website, you will see an over-fancy homepage that will continuously keep reminding you of how its services are better than others. Of course, there is nothing wrong with advertising. However, you will be able to spot strange anomalies that should not be in any professional growth service website once you start exploring.
One of the first things you will notice that Twicsy does not include any information about anyone who leads this agency. There are no phone numbers, email addresses, or physical addresses of the company that can prove that Twicsy exists and is real. Additionally, there are no partners, no affiliated names, or reviews.
Another red flag you will notice is in the blog section. The first blog you see is a generic ‘Welcome’ blog post that is complete nonsense.
The other four blogs are not better – all of them have unfinished sentences and a random collection of words that have been copied from one another, with different titles and identical texts.
You will see the Buzzoid tag at the bottom of Twicsy’s website. Now the question here is – why would Buzzoid support and power a company that offers the same services as they are doing for themselves already?
The answer is very obvious – Buzzoid is a notorious platform that has been roasted by its customers and smeared by its competitors.
There are several reasons why Buzzoid has such a dark stain on its reputation – non-existent customer care agents, fake accounts and bot activity, disappearing followers, etc. Almost every bad social media marketing habit can be found in Buzzoid.
So, why would Twicsy accept such support from Buzzoid if they are a genuine service? There are no apparent reasons. However, it does make sense for Buzzoid – how do you improve and clear your name without having to improve your service? Simple, you just change your name and start your scam business again.
We decided to use the service and purchased the praised 100 Instagram followers package. While we did receive the followers initially, all of them disappeared in less than ten days. Additionally, we also found that these followers were fake, with no previous activity on Instagram and with generic names.
For the amount of price we paid, the quality was abysmally low. This is nothing but signs of a scheme to take the money of the customers and provide zero returns.
Who Do You Call?
After you pay for the services, it will soon become clear that you have been deceived. All your followers will dissipate quickly and you will be left with a bit more than what you previously had. So, what do you do in his situation?
You will have no email address, phone number, or names; all you see is a rudimentary contact form that has a contact detail that will not deliver any answer to you. What is the use of refund policies, guarantees, etc. when you cannot get in touch with the customer care team, particularly if they are available ‘24*7’? Once realization dawns that you have been scammed, it will already be too late. This will definitely leave a bitter aftertaste.
Apart from money, you put a lot of things at risk when you decide to choose a company that has been known to scam its customers. Even if you are not giving your password, your account will still become a red target for buying fake followers and other bot activities.
Apart from ruining your reputation with your real followers, fake followers also violate Instagram’s terms of the agreement. In short, Instagram will flag and penalize your profile and can eventually get your account removed from the platform.
The dark secrets of Twicsy will have consequences that cannot be played down, covered, or hidden. If you are a serious content creator, you cannot allow yourself to take these shady deals.
From the above, it is understandable that Twicsy is not a reliable social media growth platform. The presentation is faulty, the promotional packages are extremely bad, the customer services do not care much, etc. – all these aspects do not help Twicsy redeem itself in the eyes of its customers.
It is advised that you do not take Twicsy as a representation of this market. There are a lot of other services that you can use that are more than capable of boosting the visibility of your Instagram account and improve engagement.
