    I have an old dual core 2gbram machine I don't use at home. Just wondering if there are other benefits to vps... like if my proxies don't work somehow, and my IP gets banned by TW, that could get my primary acct banned, right? Is this a real issue?

    Bandwith usage is another issue that you might want to consider and when you run the scripts to not interfere with regular internet usage via your regular pc/laptop, if they care about the latter. Eg, here we are cave-dwellers and our internet speed is just 30mbs. If I run ser or sb, internet usage goes out the window.

    Got it. I supposedly have high speed cable modem, but it is Brighthouse, so...

    We can generally do netflix without issue, so I wouldn't guess 50 TW accts should be an issue overall. Might be different if it got really large-scale.

    Any possibility of home ip being exposed and banned?

    I'm not an expert on tw, so I leave that part to others

    Yes, your IP can be banned, if you need manage a lot accounts , you will need proxies! :) You can use home machine or vps, but vps is more secure from any trouble...

    I recommend you get a VPS, it automates the whole process.
