    How many people is it safe to follow in a day with TweetAttacks?
    Just made a new account with Twitter and didn't want to get it banned.

    Trying to see what I can do with social network marketing and wanting to scale up as quick as I can without messing up.


    Any advice?

    put it between 50-150. And unfollow 10% once a week or so. Try to randomize it as much as you can. (which is a piece of cake with tweetattacks)

    I follow 750 - 1100 every day, unfollow 500 to 800 everyday. Beed doing that for about 5 or 6 weeks. account is 4 months old I get about 100 new followers a day. I set my tweets to go out every 10 to 20 minutes. I have 3 "clean" to one "link" tweets.

    Yeah, I know to hit the unfollow module and unfollow all friends that haven't followed you that day, just to keep it fresh.

    I am going to start at 300 I think so far, and probably unfollow around 200 the next day.

    I hope to get to 10k followers in the end and flip it then rinse and repeat.

    I forgot to mention, I set my unfollow to 7 days (if they haven't followed by then, they won't)

    Also, I use refollowdotcom to unfollow anyone that hasn't tweeted in the last 30 days. I did 750 people yesterday that fit that and waited to do the remaining 256 just now. I had over a 1000 people who hadn't tweeted in over a month!

    Something to watch for.

    Ah okay, I will weed those out as well.

    Hopefully I can get into this.
    I started a couple hours ago with a brand new account.
    Out of 139 followed, 40 are following back.
    Not too bad I would say.


    Thanks again,

    couple of hours ago?

    whoa, don't go too fast on those new accounts. Mine is a few months old.

    I'd say go something like this:
    day 1 open acct, post first msg (something like "I'm on Twitter"
    day 2 post another 5 or 6 generic messages
    day 3 nothing
    day 4 follow 100 (keep posting messages)
    when you get to a week, then up it to a few hundred a day.

    :) haha, no worries. Twitter is pretty busy these days! I seriously don't think they can keep up with the growth. There are people with thousands of twitter accounts making some serious money.

    A handful of BHW members are probably responsible for all the fail whales you see! LOL

    I don't use tweetattacks, but this forum has made me curious so I will check it out. I use a different program and follow about 300-400 a day. As Dadelius said though, my account has been around a while(6 months). So start slow, and make sure to tweet.

    I unfollow after 3 days, and out of my 300-400 follows about 40% follow back. I am also able to follow the people of other twitter accounts. For example if my market is sports and can follow the people who follow espn and so forth. Giving me, targeted followers.

    i'd stick to 200 - 300 follows a day. if you want to achieve more followers try creating additional account and do the same 200 - 300 follow on another account.

    I've run into this problem a number of times when starting twitter maketing. Followed 1,000: Got banned. Started a new account and followed 500: got banned. I've been safe with between 250 and 300 follows in a day. I've gone as far as 400 without a problem... but not willing to press my luck anymore.
