    I just created a parody account last night, and then today followed 950 people and my account was suspended. I checked the box saying I won't do it again and it was instantly unsuspended. So my question is did I already mess up with this account, or can I still use it to get to 50k+ followers eventually?

    Is it like, I already had a warning, so if I happen to get suspended again, it will be permanent and that's it? How many times can you be suspended? (not that I'm trying to get suspended, just need to know)

    I may be wrong but I don't believe there is a set number of times. I think it's a case to case scenario and the decision is at the discretion of whomever is tending to your account.

    You have just one chance.
    You ticked the box and the next time they suspend you your account will be permanently banned.

    Slow down the rate of following people. Have it between 8 and 100 seconds, or more. That's what I did and I didn't get banned that way.
    If need be, get some bots to follow you to help level out the ratio.

    Do you mean the twitter itself or like an IP ban?

    Yes, as 'soundsdelicious' mentioned, I believe it is only one chance - I made a new twitter account a few days ago and followed 300 people. Next morning, I woke up to find my account suspended; In the 'temporary suspension' message I thought I remember reading that if it happens again your account will be banned permanently, so it sure sounded like it was a one strike you're out type of deal.

    Definitely not true.

    I have an account that has been suspended and reinstated twice. :).

    I mean it does kind of make sense no human being would sit down and manually follow 300 people. Just my .02

    Well I'm a human being, and I manually followed close to 1000 people today and it didn't take very long to be honest lol.

    Adding too many friends too fast. I added nearly 1000 in a day and got suspended. :).
