    Does anyone want to share advice, with a new user account on Twitter?

    How will it not get banned?

    Should I tweet a few times?

    Give me some advice.

    :)

    By the way, I will be using Tweet Attacks. The free lite version for now, just to follow and unfollow.

    Their not getting banned, I'm just asking for advice on how I should gain 'trust' to my account..

    For an example, how many people should I follow? Should I tweet a few times?

    dont try to follow unfollow more thn 80-100 peoples per day
    IMO wont unfollow any buddy instantly give thm atleast 1 week
    i know 1 week is just a no. after 1 week u are on track
    follow 80-100 new people and unfollow 1 week old peoples who didnt following u back
    put some simple tweets at start without any link 3-5 per day is enough

    I would just make sure that your daily follows are as consistent as can be. That way, you look like a person who is going on every day and following a certain amount of people. Also, don't forget to post a tweet or two every few days.

    Oh, and for the best geo-targeted results just search for popular things in the area and follow their followers.

    Personally I was following 200-300 people per day and I think that is reasonably safe, I think an important factor is not tweeting too much, not spamming peeps inboxes etc

    But also as above make tweeting look genuine.

    I also think it's a good idea to run a few accounts - spread the risk, and remember if your account gets banned you can always get it back at least once.

    And yes following followers of an active user in your niche is the best way to get followers - but you can also mix it up by searching for tweets (be smart though to avoid bots) and follow a percentage of followback users to keep your numbers rising.

    Also, I have always waited 1 day to unfollow if I'm not working on targeted followers, and 3 days if I'm working on targeted - because if your really targeting a real person, they don't always follow back straight away.

    Oh and if you are running several accounts, be sure to use proxies.

    Awesome, thanks for the advice.

    I tried to do a CPA offer, to like 65 followers - 2 clicked. No leads.

    There are so many automated accounts on Twitter that if you do something personal once in a while some people get a shock lol. Do follow fridays, retweet real people, @reply to people. Mix that with your automated tools and you sure have a good chance to stand out (in a positive way)

    I've been following/unfollowing at a rate of 190-199 per day without any
    "aggressive following" problems.

    Here's what I do with an account:
    1. Build out the full profile with profile pic
    2. Change the background
    3. Tweet randomly about the niche or generic good day, bad day stuff
    4. Reply to other peoples posts every once in a while.
    5. Retweet other people
    6. Build your own lists.

    Over the last year, since adopting this approach, I've only had two issues pop up. I had a legit account for my dad's business get suspended out of the blue and I messed up playing with Wait and Reply in TweetAttacks and dumped about a hundred tweets at once. I was able to get both accounts back in a day.

    I make accounts where I don't follow many people but have a lot of followers.

    You can achieve this by paying for followers using services like twiends or the dozens of others out there...it costs a little bit of money but helps make an impressive-looking Twitter profile.

    If you are working a niche with a lot of potential followers, you will eventually have more followers than you are following.

    I would rather build a base of followers that are actually tied to my niche than pay for random followers.

    I have some niches where there is an almost endless supply of potential followers, but I also have one account where the pool of obvious Twitter followers is limited. However, with that base, I can push links to my corresponding niche site. Sometimes in Twitter, it's more about targetted followers than it is about the sheer number of followers.

    But if you're doing CPA, it's all about the number of real people following you.

    Damn... People work just on following/unfollowing...

    I think twitter check your effective time spend on your acc. If you use just a software is your active time very low, and you can get ban very fast...

    We always work manually too for each account and use custom PHP script to build account time..

    So for good twitter account (without suspend) you must work manually... Software like Twitter attack is just tool for help..

    Sorry for english

    Build accounts manually ... Buy 25 Private Proxies, use Chrome and install extension.

    http://www.chromeextensions.org/utilities/switchy/

    Set up your proxy profiles ...

    Now go and buy some email accounts and start building T accounts. 2-3 accounts per proxy, clear cache & cookies before each new login. Build your twitter profile add a profile pick, background image and use twitterfeed and some joke feeds with links disabled for each account. Let those account build for a day or two and spam away!

    And you should also follow a random number of people each account. I do it this way and never had an account banned and I SPAM HARD!

    Use proxies and do not follow more than 100 users per day.

    I use custom software and have never had a problem. This is what I do. Add hashtags to everything you tweet. Follow people in bunches(10-20 in a few min) then stop for a day or so. Tweet sayings from so lyrics webpage 2x more than you post the link to your site. Unfollow people after a while. I doubt any regular person can follow 5k people and acutally read what they have to say. I do everything at once. I send messages, follow unfollow and tweet once or twice a day. I don't spread it out at all. I doubt real people do this either. I hope that helps.
