    i cannot follow more than 500 new people/day 2-3 days ago, is this possible there's a new limit? twitter is worse and worse...im lucky to start twitter when the limit was 2000/day, 500/day not too much and i bet it will be less in no time (2-3 months)

    yep, i know it bro...

    i have accounts 20k+, im not an aggressive follower that means e.g. my followers are 20k, im not following more than 20k, so the number of my followings and followers are about the same (i'm allowed to following 22k in this case), but i couldn't follow that number, only 500/day about 2-3 days ago...so i think its a new limit

    They set a limit say if you have 2k followers i think you can only follow like 500 more than the people following you.

    twitter keeps limiting the following amount. I hope they get a better server and allow us to get back to 2000 following a day.

    Yeah they keep limiting follow option. I'll make more accounts and follow 500 per day. I still can make the same revenue if not more. Tracking though will be a bitch, lol...
