    I have almost finished my twitter tool for converting aged accounts based on my niche and creating their applications including the mobile phone step. However, I couldn't figure out the following issue. I hope I will make it finish and put it here for public use after resolving the issue.

    My twitter-bot works as api-based and I need to get api keys for each of my accounts. I have created many accounts including the applications in past one year and there was no problem until this day. Now, twitter occasionally gives me an error while creating applications consecutively in a period. The error says: "We protect against potentially abusive behavior. Your request has been rejected for now. Please try again later or contact Platform Operations through...".

    After successfully creating an application for an account, I do the followings before continuing with the next one;
    - clear cookies
    - change my proxy (private ones)
    - change browser's user agent string

    However, I am still facing with the issue. After waiting a couple of 10-mins, I am able to create the new application. Based on my trials I can truly say that twitter gives the error for my PC. It bans my PC from creating new applications for some time. Considering the above changes I've tried, do you have any idea about what else twitter looks to my computer in order to identify it is me? I would really appreciate if you can help.

    Do you receive the same error using another computer on the same network?

    Why would you use their API?

    I have Internet access behind NAT and two computers in my home. At the point of time when I can't create new applications in one of my computers (after two or three accounts), I am still able to create in another computer even for the same twitter account. However, this computer also gets the same error after a few accounts. Note that I use different proxies and clear cookies for each time. So, I think twitter checks something which is related to PC. Is there anyway to detect my real IP behind the proxy? (Because of the NAT configuration my two computers have same IP address in viewpoint of Twitter, right?) If so, it may even make a correlation between IP adresses and physical PCs according to some strange security algorithm. It is also interesting that I don't get any error while creating applications in one of my friends computer which is totally far away from me.

    This issue seems like that I can't also create mass gmail accounts by using proxies. Google somehow understands. So, if there exists a solution for creating gmail accounts then it may also work for me. Revising my question, what is the best way to hide yourself completely in Internet?

    First of all, I am a software developer and I like creating my own software for my own usage. I think developing your own software brings flexibility to your work. I code only what I want. It was fast and easy to develop my own api-based twitter bot by using some wrapper library (tweetsharp) considering that I am not much familiar with tampering the http data which is crucial for web-based bots.

    According to my opinion and based on my experience, api-based bots don't require proxies. For instance, you can't run 50 accounts in same computer without getting banned in web-based bots if you don't use proxies. Your accounts will be suspended at most in a few weeks. However, I don't use any proxy in my api-based bot and run 50 accounts per computer which each one of them sends 360 follow requests in each day. But this doesn't mean that api-based bots don't get banned. In my opinion, it reduces the probability of having suspended accounts. The last suspension was two months ago in my system. Plus, api-based bots require less processing compared to the web based ones considering that I run these bots in ec2 micro instances.
