Okay so I saw on a support post on a Tumblr bot's forum and it was talking about mass bans and people agreed that they lost a large amount of accounts. I mean.. a LARGE amount of accounts. He lost 2000 tumblr accounts??? What do you do with 2000 accounts? I mean, if he lost 2000 than that means he probably had a lot more than 2000. Is it logical to have this many accounts? For what purpose would you do this? Tumblr has a total of 291 million blogs, which is obviously going to be larger than the number of users. Then the number of active users is less. An article on BusinessInsider states "Kafka says a source familiar with the company tells him that it probably has 30-50 million active users". So you can follow 5000 per account. If you follow 5000 with each account that's 2000*5000 which is 10,000,000. So to max out that you'd be planning on following (at least) 1/5 of all active tumblr users? It would seem impossible to scrape those numbers of users. Is this really logical, or are they not even using this for following? Could they be using it for SEO? It seems that it would adversely effect a site SEO-wise with that many but I could be wrong here.. So my best bet is that this is the purpose. Then it goes for proxies. I'm sure they scrape public proxies here, or do they buy (or own) 2000+ private proxies for their accounts? Then the next question would be about the emails for the accounts. I'm sure if you're creating 2000 you would have to use a catch-all email, right? But wouldn't Tumblr detect 2000 emails with the same domain which isn't an email host? Or do they actually just create 2000 email accounts? I'm just too curious to what you'd be doing with 2000 accounts, or moreso how you'd be doing it. I manage 50 right now I'm just letting grow, but should I scale it up (by 1950 blog)? Haha.
