    Now when you follow/unfollow people and get your account locked
    1. Your account gets locked quicker
    2. You have a limit of unlocks.
    4. I takes a few hours to unlock your account after a successful password reset

    Twitter is becoming it more difficult. Yeah, if you have a big (100K+) account, you can get good results from Twitter still, but if you don't have (like me, my better account has 30K+), you'll have too much difficulty to get enough results to justify investing so much time on Twitter.

    If it keeps, so it's better we look for another option - probably, focusing on HQ web 2.0 sites.

    Yeah I think it is. I wish I would have seen this coming, so I could clean up a few accounts. Damn.

    Anyone know what a safe limit is for accounts that are about 2 years old? I was following around 900 per day, per account.

    The lock limit after a password reset is super annoying. I think i'm going to set the delays a tad bit longer to see if i get locked up. I'll come back and let you guys know

    My accounts got locked for tweeting only. Followliker update works fine, it can do the password reset via email, but my accounts getting locked every 10 minutes. There was 19 password reset in the last hour for 4 accounts. I agree, mass following is dead.

    OK! So... who can develop a better follower bot, able to analyse each user profile, suggesting ONLY good user (real potential followers and "URL clickers")?

    It looks like a big challenge and I'd love to work on it, but I don't have enough time for now (I'm getting started in a new job as teacher/Professor).

    Anyone? Please, we need change our strategy, by adopting tools able to analyse user profiles!

    All very simple and massfollowing is not dead)
    1. Account registration. Very important step. Using good proxy or buy from trust sellers.
    2. Add 10-20 thematic tweets and forgot about this account to 1 month.
    3. Take good private proxy (only for one hand). For each account - one proxy.
    4. Using trust twitter tool (tweetsadder or twidium inviter).
    5. Following no more 150 accounts per day. 75 in the morning and 75 in the evening.
    6. Follow only thematic accounts and only with one languges.

    I only just starteed twitter and seems i came after the party is over :(

    Made a quick bot for following and was locked the next day. Unlocked but now cant follow anyone! This is almost as tough as plentyoffish dating site!

    So does unfollowing not remove the follow block? What other platforms are more open season for botting? instagram maybe? trying to figure out if twitter will be worth the time investment or whether its better to just learn a different social media platform. Thoughts?
