Can I use the same proxies on scrapebox as I use to open social media accounts?

    Will the proxies be "tainted" by using them with scrapebox (to scrape for aged social media accounts)? I wish to use the proxies to open Twitter and Instagram accounts so don't want them to be banned. Can I still scrapebox them?

    That could be subjective. I would say "it depends" If your scraping the same domains that your using it with, as in if your scraping twitter with a proxy and accessing twitter with that same proxy, that could be bad.

    If you went slow enough I think it would be fine, but if you went too fast and got blocked due to exceeding rate limits then you would also be blocked from accessing your account.

    Now if you mean scrape from like google or some 3rd party site not related to the social site then its fine. But you can buy 5 private proxies on fiverr for $5 or there abouts and get 10 shared ones from buyproxies or similar for $10. So if in doubt just keep them separate.

    Do not mix your Twitter and IG proxies.

    If you use different proxies to connect Twitter accounts and other proxies to connect IG account, then use the Twitter ones to scrape IG and the other way.

    However, most IG and Twitter accounts are public. Thus, you don't need accounts to login to see the content. Therefore, you can buy cheap shared proxies for the scraping part. In this way, you protect your account proxies.
