    I'm wondering how many accounts I'm able to run without much of a problem. I currently have 5 accounts, this is what I do on them:

    - 1account that mass follows - unfollows. I realized I should slow down a little bit on this one, it does get a lot of RTs but following so much can lead to problems.
    - 1 account that is being build, also mass follows, but still small.
    - 1 account that looks like a personal acc, dont do much on it except tweet some stuff.
    - 1 account that looks like a legit company. Over 10k (a lot fakes) followers.
    - 1 personal account, dont do much with it.

    Can I get in to trouble with this amount of accounts? What would you guys advise me? Software/proxies/vpn?

    I might want to add more accounts in the near future too, I'm also looking for a better tweet scheduler that supports images. I read hootsuite was good, any ideas guys?

    Make sure you've got a proxy for every 2 to 4 accounts and you'll be fine. The problem with lots of accounts is coordinating their actions. Once you do it for awhile, you'll figure out something that works for you.

    I personally don't use either, but many people have good luck with tweet adder or followliker. I know guys running a lot of accounts with one of those.

    I'm not sure about hootsuite.

    Thanks for your response. Should they be private proxies? (I guess).. Also, should I use a VPN next to it or no?

    Same question again and again....dang-it! Run five account per private proxy. If you are going to be doing less that ten accounts then you probably don't need proxies. Twitter apparently sees home networks as less of a threat than proxies.

    Sorry mate, thanks for taking the time to respond though. Right now, I don't plan on getting more than 10 accounts, might open up my 6th and 7th soon. But since I'm still starting out, I might be fine without proxies.. Or I'll just get one and run some accounts on those

    I know of guys who run up to ten on their home network, so ya...I wouldn't get any yet.
