    so just jumped into the twitter game, went and followed 926 people in hopes of gaining more followers... doing all of this by hand, so im hoping this works.
    does twitter stop you from adding more followers after so many added in a day? I try to click the button to follow someone and it doesn't even do anything anymore? This happen to anyone else before?

    I recommend you download and read some of the Twitter guides available here... Most seem to be videos so that's even easier...

    You may not get banned but you could EASILY have your account suspended for 10 days... If they see anything really suspicious then yeah, they will definitely ban you.

    There doesn't seem to be any real consistent formula... I have over 50 accounts spread across many niches...

    I started out very aggressive with follows and unfollows just to see what would happen and from my experience, CONSISTENT aggressive following and unfollowing will definitely get your account suspended. I have not had any accounts banned yet.

    My personal formula -- your mileage may vary -- to keep the TOTAL of follows and unfollows to right around 300 a day. Maybe 294 one day... Maybe 308 the next. Shit like that.

    My experience has shown me that Twitter definitely groups following and unfollowing TOGETHER as ONE. In other words, if you follow 300 and unfollow 300, then your account activity is 600.

    And I've seen accounts get suspended from one to 10 days for that kind of AGGRESSIVE activity.

    Again, your mileage may vary...

    Which means if I did follow 300 one day, then I would wait 18 to 25 hours to unfollow 300.

    Another part of this formula that really works for ME is keeping the difference of followers and people I am following to less than 300.

    Which means if you're following a shitload of people and you only have 20 people following you, you're obviously an AGGESSIVE follower... LOL.

    That doesn't mean that your account will get suspended... I've done the same thing as you've done and completely flew under the radar but it's that CONSISTENT aggressiveness that I BELIEVE will get your account suspended or banned.

    Just my 2 cents...
