    Lets say I have roughly 30K followers and Friends but decide to remove all of my friends, would that cause twitter to flag or suspend my account?

    I have been trying various auto follow packages out there and have changed my philosophy of following everyone who follows me. I want my friends to be a small subset of of who I am currently following and are the people I really care about seeing what they have to say. From everything I have read though about the twitter ratio it sounds like I could be setting myself up for suspension...

    I believe removing them would be a better option. Because you will get up banned anyway. IF you have a pretty outside the shell ratio, then you are under suspicion.

    Better to act now rather then wait for them to act :)

    Don't over estimate twitter. This happens with google too. They are not watching every action you do, i think its safe to do that, use your good sense..

    Definitely, based on threads I've read here + it's logical. I don't know what the 'safe' amount is, but I remove 50 to 100 per 2 days, and I've never had problems.

    Thats a little too suspicious. I would remove like 5k a day.
