How to tell if acct is banned. Can't follow anyone. Is this a TW issue or FL issue?

    I have a bunch of accts in Followliker, and they should've followed hundreds of accts each yesterday, but instead only followed a few. Now, they all show followed zero today.

    Health says ok. Status says ok.

    I haven't loogged into them as I'd have to set up proxy to do so, but I can see them from other accts, and everything looks fine.

    Is this a follow ban from Twitter issue, or a FollowLiker issue? I've got FL scraping some high profile accts for followers, so it should have plenty to draw from, and I'm not seeing any message about being out of scraped users or anything like that.

    edit... ok this is really freaking me out. I've gone as far as deleting all other tasks, and entering only a brand new query that should return tons of users.

    Software just updates all accts stats, then does nothing. No errors, acct appears fine from outside. Checking into one of the emails in a moment to see if any notices.

    Is this what a tw ban looks like?

    When my accounts don't follow people they're usually 'locked'. I just change/reset the password and it solves my issues.

    Ok, I was guessing something along those lines. Can't really be "banned" since acct still shows up. FL has auto unlock feature, but I haven't enabled as it needs a bunch more info entered. Also, since I've spent a good deal of time dialing these in by hand, I wanted to be forced to pay attention if they got locked and undo it by hand first time to make sure I get why they're being locked, etc.

    Would've thought I'd see something other than status "OK" if locked, but makes sense.

    Yesterday was my first heavy day of unfollowing. Is that the likely culprit? Anything else a likely trigger?

    Well, I set up proxies in Firefox to be able to log in to each, and...

    now I'm really confused.

    Logging in to individual acct, TW lets me follow just fine. No notices of any kind.

    Don't you get some kind of notice when locked?

    I'm starting to thing FL is having some kind of meltdown.
