    Account is 1 year 8 months old. Has 20K following and 27K followers.

    I am not using any automated tools. All of it is done manually.

    I was originally following/unfollowing 200/day until I got to around 20K, then I moved it up to following 400-500 (max) per day - sometimes I won't even reach that many in a day. And/or unfollow around 380 per day.

    Account was locked twice in a week without any change in my following habits; I was doing the above numbers since late September 2016. One of those times, I was at 0 following for a while, and I lost almost 2k followers because of it.

    I always believed that aged accounts or larger accounts could follow or unfollow more people in a day without being suspended, or even locked for that matter.

    So what are safe numbers to follow or unfollow per day with a 25K+ account?

    There is no fixed number. I think they look for patterns, and they change the algorithm all the time. So while maybe last month it was safe to follow/unfollow 1000 people, today it may be more about behavior than number.

    It is based more on behavior. You need to be using automated software. I would suggest Massplanner over everything but TMB will work too. The reason you need this software is they can randomize the intervals with which you use to delay your actions. Last I looked it was 2000 a day, and I used to nuke thousands and thousands of followers at a time with a Chrome addon.

    Usually on new accounts, it is best to follow less than 200 people everyday. While it ages, gradually increase this limit but never exceed more than 2000. Unfollow should be similar but never unfollow the same day as following.

    I found out that manual work is completely different than automation. Immediately after I started using followliker, I am asked to change password and unlock with mobile many of my accounts. I don't know the reason , but probably Twitter understands that you are using a boy so they make it harder for you.
    I think you need to slow down at the beginning to avoid bans.

    Don't follow/unfollow the same amounts every day, and spread out your following/unfollowing. I personally refrain from following more than 1000 at any given point. Take break days sometimes and don't do any activity at all. Think this way, you want to make it look as humanly as possible. Randomize your patterns and switch them up every once in a while.

    The thing is, I have a backup with 7100 followers, and I follow 350 / unfollow 250 per day and that account is fine even though I very rarely tweet on that one. I thought it was percentage-based, and also based on activity and engagements.

    I only follow 1000 daily and unfollow 400.. Then it is not the only activity present in the account. You can post a tweet, reply to tweets of others, do retweets, join hashtags etc.. to create a variation in your twitter account.

    You definitely need a good content timeline for it to work

    Yes my account is still fine. Is your account new? Usually for new users, Twitter is a little bit stricter.

    No it's 9 months old but I have been using sites like newfollow.info plusfollower.info etc to get followers, you get around 50 followers every time you use them but they follow some people too, I haven't done follow/unfollow method but these app have followed for me but I'm sure not more than 100 people a day, only 2 months ago I started following less than 100 a day for a week, and a few days ago I followed 70 and none of them followed back, I checked and I'm ghosted.

    I see.. I follow/unfollow manually. And for the day it is not the only activity I am doing. I keep my account human through engaging to other activities like posting tweets, retweeting, relpying, favoriting or joining hashtags. I don't really depend on 3rd party apps, Twitter is really stricter nowadays banning and suspending accounts.
