    Hi, I'd like to know how long an unconfirmed twitter will last before eventually being banned? One of my uses will be using the tweetattacks wait and reply method with keyword targeting. Ive tried Google and BHW but non of the posts Ive read have been conclusive with a lot of speculation going on.

    Anything concrete would be appreciated, even if its just a time span like 10-15 hours etc

    How does a twitter user marking a tweet as spam affect things?

    Does the amount of followers the unverified account has affect things as well?

    Wait and reply unconfirmed accounts get banned fairly quickly Id say after about 20-50 replies they are usually automaticalled banned

    there's not really a timelimit

    30 days if used with twitter TOS, after that you'll see message "Wrong username, email and password combination" in TA. If you are reply too fast or spammy, time span can be from 1 to 20, 30, or more messages. Sometimes accounts are dead even before using because are created in same batch with already blocked acc's, they are blocking all from same ip.

    Would sprinkling in some generic comments help at all?

    everything what is different, making different tweets and accounts is helping.

    I've had regular accounts get banned after only a month because of rapid posting. I would imagine that its a lot sooner with something that isn't confirmed.

    In short, yes, and don't start out by Tweeting links.
