    Hello, new to Twitter and I have a couple basic questions:

    Do affiliate links need to be 'cloaked' like they do in Instagram?

    How many accounts per proxy is considered safe?

    On twitter, affiliate links can be cloaked, or shortened, or the original link. Usually the original link will pull a photo from the site, and a shortened link will not.

    Proxies: opinions will vary. I do 8 accts per.

    What do you mean "original link will pull a photo from the site"?

    When you tweet a link, you'll see a pic and some text pulled from the site... basically how you see most all links to sites on Twitter.
    If you use a shortener, most of the time it won't post a pic or text from the site.

    You'll see the difference once you try both ways.
