    So I was using an anonymous proxy with Tweet Attacks. I presumed if my IP selection was blank, it would use my default IP address. However, my default IP became the anonymous proxy when I logged into a different account.

    Essentially, I logged into a twitter account with my proxy for a few minutes. That's all I did, however. How is twitter tracking proxies? Should I consider my activities with the proxy on twitter linked to that non-proxy account, now? Not a big issue as I haven't been spamming "yet."

    Also, does anyone know a lot about Tweet Attacks? Is there a method of setting it to my default IP and switching between proxies? Now that I've set my default browser to Firefox within the program, can I change it to Chrome somehow?

    Thankis
