    Hi everyone,

    Been twitter for nearly 40 days and currently have 12,000 followers,
    All of my are gotten manually, then using buzzom to take out those who have not followed me :)

    I wanna ask for opinions here for humming bird, have not tested it yet.

    Anyone have great success for humming bird? And how many followers are you getting via humming bird?

    Could anyone help me out here?

    Cheers,
    Netjedi.

    I've been using hummingbird for about a month, got ~10,000 followers + I use tweetlater to DM and automatically unfollow people who stopped following me

    It's easy to get over 10K followers a month using Hummingbird. Its a not bad tool and the feature of remembering who you unfollowed is very helpful (haven't seen it elsewhere) so you don't end up following the same people again (the ones who didn't follow you back).

    Watch out with HB though, twitter has started suspending accounts that mass add up to the daily limit often. I had two accounts suspended right after I mass followed a bunch of people...from what I hear, if you keep it to around 500ish/day you'll be fine.

    Just a few minutes ago I got this error when trying to open Hummingbird. Up until this point I had been doing pretty well with all my accounts.

    "The exact error was: Could not connect to the license server to validate the license key"

    looks like the HB server is down, so its not connecting to it.

    kinda sucks that i have paid $200 for a program that they can switch off whenever they like.

    Yes, I've done it with the new 1K limit... 10K followers in 30 days is possible but I really wouldn't recommend trying to rush it... take your time. Don't mass follow 1K and unfollow everyday, it'll trigger some red flags over at Twitter HQ. Space it out, follow and then leave it alone for a day and then come back to it or follow below the 1K limit etc.

    In any case, the most important point is to look natural... like you're a real person using the site not just a self-promoting spammer. :)

    I usually unfollow ALL people who didn't follow me back and follow as much people as I can (I think that's ~1000 because of twitter limit)

    Well, if you twitt to people and you are really using your account as it was meant to used, there wont be a problem with hitting the daily limits.
    I think that only if you dont have any updates and still you are following many people and unfollowing as many, you will be flagged as a potential spamer.
