    So I'm just building my twitter up, Dverse_ (follow me I follow back) and I'm going with follwonig 50 people a day + 30-60 followers I get trough another site that I alsow follow back.

    I tweet 5-10 times a day, I think.

    So after how much time do I unfollow people who don't follow me back and what program should I use to make it faster.

    Right now I'm at 326 follwonig and 147 followers. I guess if I keep follwoing people that might make me look bad, or not ?

    ALso is it usefull to write a tweet with a trending hastag just for the sake of people maybe following you seeing it ?

    What exactly should I do at this stage ?

    I leave it 2-3 days after following before unfollowing those that didn't reciprocate, if you consistently unfollow people you followed less than 24 hours previously you'll end up getting suspended.

    But what is the point of following them and then unfollowing them? I guess I do not understand why you would want to do this? Do you feel that if you follow them, then they will follow you back?

    Yes, follow 100 people. A good percent will follow you back.

    I got suspended, now unsuspended. I'll ad 90 people a day, which immediately/automaticaly follow me back (a site does this but you have to be logged on it for 4 hours to get 30 follows), will this get me suspended ? Do I have to follow them slowly, if I rapidly just follow 30 at a time will that get me suspended again ?

    Its good building organic followers, follow people who do actually follow back, check if there following ratio is higher than their followers.
    also give it 2-3 days to check whether they have followed back.
    use a service such as Tweepi because its free and unfollow the users that are not following back
    Dont ever unfollow people that follow you because you'd be wasting your time trying to get a good amount of followers

    The problem is, LOTS of "people" who follow you back are just bots who use software for the same job "follow/unfollow" to build accounts with huge number of followers

    Actually you need to unfollow some of the users that follow you back, Twitter picks up on the fact that you're only following to get followers otherwise.

    Evidently you fail to understand what the word 'some' means. If you're wanting accounts to stick then you are either going to have to unfollow some of the accounts that followed you back or continually buy followers to keep your following/follower ratio in check. You will get away with it for a while, but if you continually unfollow only those that haven't followed you back you will ultimately have your account suspended.

    Not sure why you would want unfollow a person on twitter. Like it was mentioned before, most people you follow sometimes will follow you back.

    Obviously because elsewise you'l be following 1000 people and only 300 follow you and your account will look really bad, I want to build up an target audience for music I plan to release and what artist do oyu see that has 3 time less followers then he follows, immediately people will think it's not a good artist, it's just a bad look simply put.
    Also at some point you will need as many followers as you follow to be able to go on, I think at 2000 follwonig you need a close unmber that following you or you can't keep on follwoing.



    NEW QUESTION


    How do I go about unfolowing people ; should I jsut do it 20-30 at a time inculding 1-2 that actualy follow back so I don't look like a bot ?

    Give me some guidliness please

    Some will follow you back but I do not think that just because someone follows you it is right to follow them back unless you want to. They may not have similar interests to you, etc.

    This is why you follow people with an interest in your niche :facepalm:

    I read the guide 2 times. However ; how do you go about adding frequency, do you literary ad 50 people in a row ? Also unfollwing frequency.

    I follow & unfollow all in a row, with a random time delay of 2-4 seconds between follows/unfollows.

    I have tens of thousands of followers. My method is to follow (slowly and carefully, tread lightly) and then unfollow the followers who didnt follow back after at least 24 hrs.

    I've had my main twitter account 'afk' for something like 8 years now. I haven't ever had a problem getting suspended and I have hit both following limits and direct messaging limits repeatedly.

    Sorry, that post is a little confusing, what I meant is that my account name is literally: afk

    I totally agree. I've never followed a person back just because they followed me. I check the follower out & if I like their profile/tweets I'll follow them back.
