    After doing some intense reading the past days and having no experience whatsoever with VPS's or proxies I decided to embark on a twitter journey (inspired by wizard). I'm using FollowLiker with 3 aged accounts and 1 new account as a sort of 'test run' & I plan to update my project by adding 1 on 1 proxy as another 'test run'...and eventually have 10-20 accounts on different proxies for the 'final run' or the real thing.

    So far this is what I have:

    UPDATE: That was fast. Already locked out of 2 accounts and had to email & phone verify. Wiped cookies, Twitter locked me out for an hour. Will update you guys tomorrow on If I got back in.

    I'm tweeting on all accounts. For some reason this program isn't so good at tweeting with pics. At least not with the ones I imported.

    Following with a 35-65 second delay on aged accounts with an 800 daily follow limit. On the new account I'm following every 2 minutes with a 350 limit...That'll go up eventually. Automating all accounts for 5 hrs max. Unfollowing every 2 days, 25-55 second delay between unfollows.

    Before I ran the program on the VPS, I logged into every account from my Mac to make sure the phone numbers, emails, and passwords were all good. That might've been what triggered the verification process on 2 of the accounts.

    Not sure if these are good settings.. Just getting my feet wet with this entire experience

    good luck giving it a go. Try again tomorrow and see if you can get around the locks. Try not to be too aggressive when first starting.

    Good luck with your journey OP!

    I think this should be in the Journeys section.

    Thanks everyone!!

    I didn't even know there was a journey's section. :thumb: I'm successfully running all of the accounts. Turns out I just had to input the email information for each account. I tested it several times and I was getting an IMAP error.. but I guess when I started the bot, it did its job and email verified the accounts for me. I'll be posting an update later on my progress and in another day or two I'll start running proxy accounts. Just doing some test runs so I can understand how the software works and how I should time the automated actions.

    Good luck on your thread?
    Do you run all 4 accounts with 1 ip?
    Are you FL on a VPS? The free one from Amazon?

    I run all 4 accounts from 1 IP. Will add proxy accounts when I learn the software, and I'll probably limit it to 3 accounts per IP.

    I'm running the program on a Hostwinds VPS.

    Dangerous for the 800.

    Dangerous.

    Play it safe, very safe.

    ^ I'm going to push the limits as much as I can tbh. I've built at least 30 pages from 2009ish til now and I've never had issues with getting banned over aggressive following. At least not that I can remember. Also, keep in mind the accounts that I'm aggressively following on are the aged accounts with 1,000s of followers. I'm keeping it at 350 for the brand new accounts and I'm following a lot slower on those pages. Thanks for the advice though. I'm open minded so I'm keeping everything in mind and into consideration.

    Twitter has new security measures. It's more risky, now. I had accounts which were fine, not really aggressive, which are banned now.

    Be aware that Twitter changes, and that which worked before may kill your accounts now.

    Thanks. I'm currently away but when I get back I'll make sure to tighten things up if necessary. I'm checking the accounts remotely on my phones browser and they seem to be following. For some reason they aren't tweeting though. Which sucks
    I'll have to check up on that

    Instances of what? I have 1 FollowLiker project going at the moment. All the accounts are from my home IP, and I never log into them from anywhere else. Haven't had verification problems anymore. Still learning the settings, wondering why the accounts aren't tweeting. I'll probably throw in 15 more accounts with proxies on Friday.

    Thanks everyone for your kind wishes. Well here's an update... Keep in mind I haven't been automating 24/7 or even aggressively. Learning FollowLiker and 'feeling it out' so to speak before I go full throttle and add a ton of accounts

    Yesterday's Followers: 15,221
    Today's Followers: 15,406(+185)

    So, you only have 1 Follow Liker windows or project? You follow/unfollow/like/tweet with the same project?

    It's that's the case, make:
    - 1 project for follow/unfollow
    - 1 project for tweet
    - 1 project for DM
    - ...

    1 project for each action.
