    From new accounts, you'll probably get banned sooner or later. But if you have an age account, you'll be alright

    You're only at risk of getting suspended when the account is very young or you're doing something spammy. It's largely driven by how many people report an account, so take that into consideration.

    ive tried with about 1,000 accounts, and my strategy is to start with 100 follows/day and bump that up 50 per day until you've reached the limit. I've never been banned doing that, and it only takes a week or so to be at the limit. When I started following the max with a fresh account I always got banned.

    the earliest created account would lead you to banned your account, a large number of people who have been banned there...

    Yeah as Erick said, as long as your account isn't brand new and you've been on Twitter for a little while you should be completely fine. The main things that set Twitter off are Churn (Following 400 and then unfollowing 400 a few hours later) and following the ones you unfollowed over and over again, best way to avoid this is to follow them directly through Twitter tools like JustUnfollow or others that allow you to hide users you've followed in the past through them.

    Definitely agree. I use an adult related niche and my account gets reported every now and then. This resulted in a ban the majority of the time and it had nothing to do with how much I was following.
