    Is anyone using the @reply function on tweet attacks with accounts created where you didn't verify your email? I know the manual says that you need to verify the email addresses, but I was just wondering...

    I have been doing it for a few days, the accounts can usually get out between 25-200 tweets before getting the ban hammer. It's definitely worth it to verify if you are either manually creating them or mass creating with a tool. You can just use a catch-all email address which allows you create random emails and it will all be sent to the same inbox for verification. Hope this helps

    free catch all email can be gmail. You can register a many twitter accounts using the same email address by just adding a period anyplace in the account name.

    email.fortwitter at
    emailfortwitter at
    email.fortwitter at

    Then when the follow and DM emails start pouring in from twitter create a filter to mark as read.
