Anyone know anything about Tweet Your Books?

So, I found an advertising site called Tweet Your Books. Basically, the way it describes itself is a platform that, for a fee, tweets out your book to their follower base. I was wondering if anyone had used their services or similar services. Also, are there prices fair? If no one sees any red flags, but still don't know how effective it would be, I could try doing an experiment. Here is a link to their website:

    I have my doubts.

    There's a chance it could be like BookBub, where people subscribe to a newsletter (or in this case, twitter account) because they want to hear about book deals. However, I don't see any indication that you need to slash your book prices. So why would people follow this Twitter account?

    The "Set and Forget" doesn't do anything to assuage my concerns. Neither does the fact that they promise "select and genuine" followers who they found over the course of five years. People abandon Twitter accounts all the time. How many of these accounts have been abandoned?

    There's no smoking gun here. This could very well be a legitimate service. You have $60 to spend and you're curious to try this thing out? Go for it! But I'd just go into this with a bit of caution.

    If you look at the accounts that are followers, they appear to be marketing accounts and other writers. Not very promising in my opinion.

    Ok. Will give it a wide berth.

    I've only been writing for about a month. I know that self-promotion is important, but do services like this really do anything? My twitter account is constantly seeing tweets by bots. I just ignore them.
