    Hello,

    I had a pretty bad followback rate on a lot of my accounts so I decided to see what may cause this. I logged in to one of the accounts and tried to follower another one of my accounts, and while it does follow it correctly, the other user does not get a notification that I have followed. Does anyone know if this means that the accounts are ghosted? And if they are ghosted how do I prevent that from happening. Does it have something to do with the IP, because I tried creating a fresh account and follow my other account but that also did not give a notification.

    If anyone could help me out on this I would greatly appreciate it.

    I don't believe that's your account being ghosted. Did you refresh the account for updates?

    Yup, I did refresh and I even tried following multiple of my own accounts, none of them showed a notification that I had followed.

    Ghosting occurs when twitter auto-unfollows after a second (like instagram). If they don't get a notification, don't worry. But if you're being aggressive you may want to slow down and not lose all your hard work.

    I agree. There is nothing worse than losing an account that you have built up for a long time.

    Anybody found a solution to this? I'm still getting the same problem where I try to follow someone and they won't get a notification at all. I have 500 accounts and this is still happening to them. Some help would be great! Thanks!
