100% of Twitter airdrops lies. Here’s how I know.

How do you know airdrops are fake?

  1. Twitter has a bot problem and Google Forms has no anti-bot measures. I had to find this out the hard way on my 1st airdrop, when we got 6K form responses with only 85 new Twitter followers.
  2. Bots are not “stupid”. They are human controlled. On my 2nd airdrop, I was sure we fixed it. Nope, after 2 hours, bots figured out the right answer.
  3. Twitter makes it impossible. At the most, you can only see the last 100 retweets using Twitter’s API.

How to verify users for airdrops.

  1. Email (human) verification at scale.
