    I came across a thread in the journey section yesterday where the OP claimed to be following around 900 users a day on some brand new accounts. I decided to give it a test and created new account and put it in followliker to follow 1000 people a day. I just checked it, around 20 hours after making it, and it's still alive, has successfully followed 999 users, has 57 followers and has tweeted 58 times (with favourites and retweets from real users). I've received no suspensions nor warnings, though I can't follow anymore because of the 1000 follows a day limit.

    According to everything I've read about this that account should have been suspended or severely limited within minutes. Has the game changed recently without me noticing? Have others had many suspended accounts lately?

    I think it's because twitter shares were going down mostly during half year. The main reason slow users growth... I guess with all this twitter massacre on suspending or locking accounts many ppl gave up. Google it

    I was even able to unsuspend few permanently suspended accounts

    It's not gonna be banned within 24 hours. There are many people who follow 1000 or so a day and don't get banned. After 3-4 days they wake up and see the results - banned

    Ok nothing too unusual then, although I remember when I started my accounts weren't allowed to follow more than a 100 or so a day. The account is still going strong for now. If it is still alive after a week I'll post in this thread again.

    Just in case anyone's still interested the account has been alive for 8 days now, following and unfollowing around 950 a day and is up to 794 followers. It's had no issues at all.

    Can I ask you what is your delay between 950 and next 950 that you're follow next day?

    I'm not entirely sure to be honest. It's set to run 24 hours a day following 900-1000 a day, 10-40 in a batch, 5-20s delay and 1-2 minute automation interval.
