    Hello, gents.

    I just started with Twitter API to automate some posting for being more efficient. Each account requires its own API keys and a mobile number to validate it.

    I am wondering if there's any limit to the number of accounts I can link to the same mobile number.

    I think that if they allow me to link more than 2 accounts to the same mobile number I won't have to worry to change IP for each Twitter App, but it's just an assumption.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind Regards.

    Twitter officially says that you can register 10 accounts using one mobile number but in reality I think you can't register more then 5.

    Thank you for answer, very helpful.

    Do you think that changing IP via CURL library is enough to avoid getting banned? In case I need scaling up, I am wondering what's required to bypass the restriction.

    I am running a few scripts via command line.

    Kind Regards.

    You can't bypass this even if you use 10 different ips,if I understand you that you want to use one mobile number on more then 10 accounts?

    So, if I use 1 SIM every 5 accounts, I should be ok. But I am wondering what happens if from the same computer I run around 50 accounts (10 Sims). Do they see me as a spammer?

    I think that Web Agencies and PR agencies need to find a legal workaround, right?!

    Kind Regards

    You can run 1k on one pc without the problems just use different User Agents.

    Good point. The agencies that manage a lot of accounts of clients have to know a way to use several accounts at the same PC.

    Interesting that you can register more than one account to a mobile phone. I thought for sure that it would have just been one.

    You can use any script. I can show you the process in PHP.
