    I want to set some of my twitter accounts to retweet a main account. I'm worried I get this accounts banned for retweeting same thing same time. Anyone experienced this?

    Reason for bumping this old thread: I need an answer to the question OP asked and I couldn't find any real good answer.

    To add to this; I am not posting any links etc. - It would just be to retweet a informative tweet, funny pic or video etc to drive traffic to a account.
    I have seen answers that say it might be dangerous for your accounts, but I would like to know from someone doing this or has been doing it. Like, Twitter can ban them, but are they likely to if 10 accounts RT another account?

    Cheers

    There wouldn't be any danger there. They're your accounts; you're free to do what you want with them as long as they stay within Twitter's rules https://support.twitter.com/articles/18311-the-twitter-rules.

    Retweeting an account with your other accounts, no matter how many, falls within the boundaries of Twitter's rules.

    Actually, Twitter clearly outlines that retweeting and favoriting accounts you own from other accounts you own is against their TOS.

    Where? I just went through the rules, best practices, and TOS again to see if I missed a rule like that but I couldn't find it. I'd hate to be spewing misinformation, so if you're able to find that rule somewhere in the TOS please post it here to prevent people from doing it.

    I think it is all about serial accounts. If they follow each other and RT each other Twitter will detect it and suspend all permanently. But if they don't follow each other but RT randomly could be OK. In twitter TOS there is something about automated RTs. Also it's about engagement rate manipulations
