    About what's the max on the number of tweets per day from one Twitter account that should be generated? These would be auto-tweets from wordpress blogs.

    No idea on a limit but the most I have done in one day to about 6 accounts on rotation is about 65 tweets, not all at the same time of course, 1 tweet per 3-5 minutes and not on all the accounts at the same time, so far its working well and have had no accounts deleted...

    Going to get a lot of varied answers on this one most likely.
    I post every hour, and try to limit links in my posts to one every 3. However that said I see accounts with nothing but links in their posts.


    My Twitter account is part of my income, so for me I'd rather be safe.

    i would also put in some tweets that seem like a real person made them too, instead of just linkspam. makes the account less likely to get banned.

    This might help mix up your tweets a little as others suggested:

    Might like to edit those or something, but they can give you some ideas on being real, or just find someone elses and see if you can do similar.

    I have about 15 accounts that get about 20-25 auto posts per day, everyone has a link in them. They have been up and running for about a month with no problems at all.

    I read from a Twitter staff member on a Google Forum that it was 1000 tweets per day on established accounts, but for new accounts (under 3 months old) run about 150 per day to be safe, also have to tools running on the same account at the same time, have opne tool tweeting and one following, makes everything look random and human like

    wow seriously? That seems like a pretty high threshold. I have to assume those are tweets that include replies to your account perhaps?

    I did some tests with an imacro running automatically. I was promoting some CPA offers and had a redirect link in the tweet.

    1. If you want to keep posting the exact same link and tweet, you need to wait 6 minutes between tweets. (obvious spam - didn't do this for very long) You can tweet all you want if you don't have a URL embedded.

    2. If you post random tweets with different URLs, you can post much faster. I had this on a 3-4 minute cycle with the same URL showing up every other tweet. (I was going back and forth between two redirect URLs, but changed up the text over 25 tweets or so.)

    Ran #2 for 12 hours at a time over the course of a few days. Never got banned. Never got CONVERSION either...so oh well. :p

    When you say different URLs, do you mean different TLDs all together, or different 'total' url.. like bit.ly/23j234ljsd and bit.ly/h5jf8ddl would be considered different URLs?

    That test makes sense, and thanks for sharing it!

    Correct. Different redirects to same CPA offer. (or different offers, whatever)

    In fact, here's the imacro that I used:

    Code:
    VERSION BUILD=6240709 RECORDER=FX
    TAB T=1
    SET !ERRORIGNORE YES
    SET !ERRORCONTINUE YES
    
    SET !DATASOURCE twitter-auto.csv
    SET !DATASOURCE_COLUMNS 1
    
    
    '>>>>>>>>>>> 01 <<<<<<<<<<<
    
    SET !DATASOURCE_LINE 1
    URL GOTO=http://twitter.com/
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=A ATTR=ID:home_link
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=TEXTAREA FORM=ACTION:http://twitter.com/status/update ATTR=ID:status CONTENT={{!COL1}}
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:Tweet
    WAIT SECONDS=200
    
    '>>>>>>>>>>> 02 <<<<<<<<<<<
    
    SET !DATASOURCE_LINE 2
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=A ATTR=ID:home_link
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=TEXTAREA FORM=ACTION:http://twitter.com/status/update ATTR=ID:status CONTENT={{!COL1}}
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:Tweet
    WAIT SECONDS=377
    
    '>>>>>>>>>>> 03 <<<<<<<<<<<
    
    SET !DATASOURCE_LINE 3
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=A ATTR=ID:home_link
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=TEXTAREA FORM=ACTION:http://twitter.com/status/update ATTR=ID:status CONTENT={{!COL1}}
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:Tweet
    WAIT SECONDS=232
    
    '>>>>>>>>>>> 04 <<<<<<<<<<<
    
    SET !DATASOURCE_LINE 4
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=A ATTR=ID:home_link
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=TEXTAREA FORM=ACTION:http://twitter.com/status/update ATTR=ID:status CONTENT={{!COL1}}
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:Tweet
    WAIT SECONDS=412
    
    The twitter-auto.csv is just one long list of text tweets. The WAIT SECONDS= is randomized. Duplicate the sections for how many tweets and away you go. My original went up to 99. Don't forget to update the SET !DATASOURCE line for each one. If you took the time to spin the tweets you could have an entire days worth of tweets that never repeated. How can they ban you for that?

    Note: I'm working on iMacro video tutorials and a trading forum at the moment. If anyone gives a shit about this stuff let me know.

    I've been doing batches of 40-60 at one go in Tweetattacks with no problems. These have a 5-10 minute delay between tweets, and I'm mixing in about 50-60% without links. I also make sure that all of the links in each batch are unique.

    If we dont contain much links, for example 1 link in every 4 posts, the I guess you can easily post more than 20 tweets per hour.

    I build a little Ubot bot that scrape big forum title threads and tweet them randomly between 180 (3 minutes) to 1800 seconds (30 minutes) with short redirects to my site for the last 2 months without problems.
