Get free twitter followers, facebook likes, youtube/page views

Recently, while browsing the web I ran into this site - - its has a very interesting mechanism of generating mutual traffic for its users.

For example, you have a twitter account, it would be nice if you had lots of followers so you can tweet stuff from your website and hopefully they visit, thus generating traffic for your site.
After you sign up for an account, click on the twitter tab, go to settings and set up your twitter account as displayed below:

Now to explain, in the twitter profile section you write your twitter user name, you check if you want people to be able to follow your or not, you specify the amount of "twiends credits" your offer to each person that follows you. Under the "Offer my credits to" you get to chose what kind of people should be allowed to follow you, based on their so called "drop rate" or on their"membership length". The "drop rate" can be:
 - QuickDrop Rate - a member's quickdrop rate is the percentage of people they unfollow within two days. A high quickdrop rate often signals abuse, as members should be checking each other out fairly before unfollowing. You can choose not to offer credits to members with high drop rates, or to offer them regardless of their drop rate - recommended is "Allow members with a very low quickdrop rate";
  - SlowDrop Rate - A member's slowdrop rate is the percentage of people they unfollow in a month. A slowdrop rate does not always signal abuse, as a member may be gradually unfollowing people for valid reasons.
While "membership length" lets you choose to exclude members who have signed up recently to twiends. New members are unknown to twiends and have not established drop rates. Excluding new members will allow you to target lower drop rates, but will also get you a lot less followers.

Facebook is a bit different, as you can't specify the above settings for people that "like" your page but unlike it at a later time. The Facebook settings are as displayed below:

To use Facebook with twiends you need to setup a fan page for the entity you wish to receive the "likes". Read this if you don't know how to create a Facebook fan page.

Website and Youtube settings are quite simple and self-explanatory.

Ok, so now you're all set to receive traffic. But to receive traffic, you need credits. You can either earn credits, by "twiending" other peoples twitter accounts(follow), facebook pages(like), websites(view it for a few seconds) or youtube videos(same as websites). Visually explained below:

When you press the green "twiend" button, you earn the number of credits specified right below the thumbnail. The "twiend" button can automatically add you to the list of twitter followers of the user, or it opens a new window with that user's FB profile, or website or youtube video. You need to either click like, or watch the page/video for the number of seconds specified at the top of the page.

You can also buy credits, if you're a company that wants to advertise on the social networks, or if you're a wealthy webmaster that wants to get more views on his site :)

Pricing is available here.

On special occasions you can get FREE CREDITS! A nice referral program is available.

My overall impression is good, but I'm quite new to the site, and since the post is open for comments, feel free to express your opinion.
