    I can only tell you what I do.

    I use a new email address for each account. I build out a full profile including pic and new background.

    I only follow/unfollow a 190-199 a day.

    Most of my accounts have RSS feeds or Autoblogs feeding them content through the day.

    I generally only tweet CPA offers 3 or four times max per day.

    I usually will tweet and then retweet the offer across my accounts.

    But if I'm doing wait and reply, I include a lot of non-offer tweets to post.

    I use TweetAttacks Pro and haven't lost an account in over a year (although I did have an instance where I messed up and dumped a ton of tweets at once and had to request they reinstate the account, which they did).

    I use proxies for TweetAttacks, although I don't seem to bother using them for creating accounts and haven't had a problem. I do move around a lot, so the accounts have been created across a wide range of IP's.

    I'm not a big Twitter player by the standards of some folks around here. I only have 33 active accounts and about 105,000 followers at the moment. I use them for traffic to my sites as well as CPA.

    I am using TweetAdder 3 to generate tweets for me, which I then send out through the day. (10am to 10pm, so I don't look like a bot, is this necessary?)

    Roughly how many tweets can you make in a day whilst being safe?

    Does anyone have a guide or explanation on how to perform a 'retweet chain' or any other methods to link up or take advantage of multiple accounts?

    I have a newbie question about twitter....

    Let's say if i have 1000 followers and i tweet a CPA url...how are all the people who may see it?
    Just the 1000 followers or will it get any more viral viewers?

    McGoohan - whats the rules about proxies? Do you need to "lock" proxies to certain accounts? i.e. use the some IP with the same account?

    TweetAttacks Pro has a retweet function where you can pick and choose which of your multiple accounts to retweet to. It retweets individually from the originating tweet. It doesn't make a chain per se, although you could do that but it would be manually. You might be able to accomplish it via automation with an RSS feed and a service Twitterfeed.

    If you tweet, it will be available to see by all of your followers, although depending on how many people they follow, your tweet might be highly visible (in the case of someone who only follows a few users) or it may get lost in the shuffle of a constantly updating twitter stream ( for users following a lot of users).

    I try to tweet at visible times for my users. So if you had a twitter account aimed at Europe, you wouldn't tweet when the users are all asleep.

    But if I'm just using the tweets to get something indexed, then I might tweet when my followers are a sleep.:D

    I personally don't have a rule. I refresh my list of private proxies from time to time. I load them into TweetAttacks and the accounts sit on the same proxy until I switch again.

    I don't know what the max number of accounts per proxy is safe. I'm running 3 to 4 per proxy without any problem, but I'm not spamming very hard.

    i always harvest proxies from scrapebox and then use it in tweetattacks , is this fine? because from what i know, all these proxies, most of them are in the spamhaus list.

    I'm unsure. I keep 10 private proxies for use with Scrapebox, TweetAttacks and BMD. But once, when I refreshed my proxies, I got a batch that I couldn't connect to Twitter with. I had to get my provider to set me up with ten other proxies and everything was fine.
