    Hi

    wanted to know if anyone has "personal" experience with this if I create 50 accounts with free proxies (50 different ones) can I add 300 + followed PER account with ONE IP address or wil I need 50 different ip address to ADD followed / unfollow...

    In short unique ip's just to create acc or even to manage?

    Thanks

    i think you already know the answer:
    1. free proxies? really? GL with that
    2. use one IP address only if you want to help twitter to connect that accounts

    can it work? yes, better question is for how long...

    I've heard that twitter does not log and check IPs, might not be true but it was posted somewhere here on BHW.

    Thanks-I'm pretty sure I read the same thing here --> therefore following / unfollowing w 1 ip should NOT be a problem just want somebody to confirm that???

    ok, i've just checked it for you how twitter treats IP:
    twitter retain only the last login IP*, which means: if you can follow/unfollow without logging in, then you can be safe, otherwise you aren't

    imho using free/public proxies isn't a good idea, if you're planning with those accounts for a longer period of time

    look with the new oauth and twitter api
    things are now more "to the id" rather than to the id
    as far as daily twitter ask that being said we do 100s of thousands api calls/day and while IP is said to no longer be monitored as much as ID
    i can tell you the IP activity is still being monitored to an extent

    Have someone else manage the accounts with SW that runs 24/7

    Or better yet, get other twitter users to sign up to strem your content....then you don't have to worry about any accounts getting axed.

    Building accounts SUCKS. Get other twitter users to stream for you :)

    yes, you can :)

    1. they're already blacklisted
    2. if not, you're not the only one who try to use them, so even if you can create an account with one, what if somebody after you comes and creates 50 account with the same free public proxy and start hardcore spamming -> your account will be banned also, without doing any bh
    you may think there are countless public proxies out there, i can tell you that there aren't
    and we still haven't talked about security issues of public proxies (search for the term "honeyspot" on Google without quotes)

    i'm not saying they're not working at all, but if you want to make sure you can use those accounts long term, you'd better to use (exclusive) private proxies (and also always ask the provider if the proxies he/she offers to sell are working with the service/site/program you want to use or not)

    if you want to create throw-away accounts, then you can use public proxies

    what do u mean track by id instead of by ip? twitter name?
    is a dynamic ip enough to fool twitter?
    does twitter use stuff like utube with flash cookies to track?

    so if you're doing that many api calls per day, i'm assuming its to many accounts. what would you say a good safe number is per ID per day?

    Last time I checked twitter doesn't do IP filters like Facebook. Not really sure though.

    Twitter doesn't record ips. Have dozens of accounts. have used several accounts on one ip. HOWEVER, who knows how long this will last. Might be a good idea to start with proxies just so you'll be ready if it ever changes.

    Does this mean I can create 100+ accounts on 1 IP and follow 100's / unfollow per acc each day?

    this thread is becoming pointless, if you only want to listen to the guys, who say twitter is not monitoring IP at all, then do it what's in your mind, what ru waiting for?! but if i were you and want to play safe, i'd at least listen to the guy, who has a twitter tool, he may know one or two things about twitter...

    and yes we all know a lot of people post threads and wait until someone tells them what they want to hear :rolleyes:

    that being said it doesn't take long to find out the hard way IMO
