    Hey guys, two quick questions.

    First, does twitter check which IP address you login from? Facebook does, I think they allow you few new addresses, but if it's a new IP address they don't recognize, then they ask you to verify phone, friends photos, etc. Basically saying can I use different VPN IP addresses or should I just stick to one?

    second, I paid someone to get me 10k followers... he mad 10k fake accounts and would follow me on them. than my account got banned. i contacted twitter few times to ask why they never responded. Is it because of this?

    Twitter does not check login ip addresses from my experience and i have alot of twitter accounts that i have accessed from many different ips.
    And fake followers does not get you rpage banned, aggresive following or spamming too many links, too often does. I have tested this theory by adding 100k fakes to 10 new accounts over 7 months ago and everyone is still alive.

    As an above poster mentioned, following too many people or doing so too quickly gets you banned, but adding fake followers to your account does not. Think about it like this; if they banned for adding fake followers, what would stop someone from adding fake followers to their competitor to get their account suspended?

    If you just log into 100 accts from 1 ip you should be fine, I would not advise this, but they should be safe. Now if you are going to follow or automate tasks I would advise on some proxy use for sure.

    FB is not crazy about IPs, but about geo-location.
