    Could anyone share some insight on safe follow limits on accounts aged a couple of years?Currently I have been following about 250 new users every 30 minutes or so, with 5 seconds between each follow with no problems on a brand new twitter account.I was wondering if having an account that is aged 3-4 years will reduce the follow restrictions or whatnot?

    Are you referring to 1000 with no problem on an aged account or on any account?
    What is the benefit of having an aged account?

    I could be interested in purchasing an aged account. Send me a PM with details.

    Yeah you can follow 1000 with no issue. Having an aged account and a lot of tweets, twitter, like instagram, is more lenient with bans and things of that nature. For example, if you have a brand new instagram account, and you post a nude pic, it is getting banned almost 100%. If you have an acct that is 2 years old with 700 pictures, and you post the same nude pic, most likely it is getting removed and you might get a warning. So it is a factor that comes into play. But the follow limit is 1000, and I have had little issues. I only hit a your "following too many people too fast" once, and the only restriction I received was a notice that I am 'over following', along with a temporary restriction, maybe 24 hours? That was also a while ago.

    You'll hit your limit when you get to 1000. I would say 250 follows/unfollows per day per 2000 followers is safe. It's a very broad number based on no real research, but I've never had any problems doing it like that.

    I have a Twitter account with around 48k followers and am following about 36k. I tried following about 1,000 today using ManageFlitter and a script, but was only allowed to follow 328 of those by Twitter. Seems weird considering the account is over 4 years old and I don't spam - this is a personal account.

    Weird. I mean again I am unsure what script you used, but I followed/unfollowed 500+ each yesterday (And that was more than normal) and had no issues. Maybe it did it too quick and got marked?

    The script is one I made myself using iMacros along with ManageFlitter. The only thing I can think is that I got flagged because, after a long absence of following, I suddenly went from following no one to hundreds per day. Or more likely, the intervals between following users is too short. (I set it to between 11-13 seconds per follow).

    Would really appreciate any advice. I've been a pretty good Twitter citizen. Just trying to reach the most users I can with a personal, non-spammy account.

    I do this daily. I run a bot I paid for and follow users based on hashtags and I follow the followers of other users. My bot states limits to follow:

    Tweets: 1,000 Daily Across a 24 Hour Period
    Tweet Length: 140 Characters
    Direct Messages (DMs): 250 Daily
    Followers: 1,000 Daily
    Unfollows: Currently Unknown (Just don't make it look suspicious)
    Favorites: Currently Unknown

    I run on limits as well. So I will follow a user ever 110-150 seconds. The only thing I have experienced is my account getting locked for suspicious activity from an app they suspect. All I have to do is change my password and restart the bot.
