    Ive bought a service here on bhw of fake followers. I wanted to know how twitter knows these are fake because they never show up in my notifications not even one, whereas the others do. How does twitter distinguish this?

    maybe it's ip related, i assume they weren't created from the same ip, but they can be created on the same subnet or more subnets which are blacklisted by twitter, not blacklisted from account creation, but pretty much from everything else, once the accs are created, they're gettin ghosted

    Why would you care about that though? I wouldn't want thousands of notifications.

    i don't think the ip is considered. if twitter blacklist the ip usualy they suspend the account
    i believe its more depend if the accounts are emails verifed, follow ratios......

    I have noticed this over the past few weeks on a few artist accounts I am running, and it shows no notification but the numbers go up. Sometimes it will notify the mobile device and blow it up.

    It also did this last year for a little bit, then went away. I am sure you can dig up some old post's on it here.
