    Many threads regarding twitter are going on around there but the major one which broguht this idea into my mind was http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/social-networking-sites/96771-how-manage-thousands-twitter-accounds.html

    I know there are twitter automated adding programs out there, like Humming Bird and LivelyBrowser's app, but I didnt found any good PHP scripts for this.

    So here is the basic idea ->
    You can add unlimited accounts, follow, unfollow those who dont follow you, fully online so your bandwidth isn't used.

    This thread is for asking, IF something like this comes out, how much bucks worth it would be?
    Any features you want in this?
    Should I sell the SCRIPT or provide it as a service ( I prefer service so that script isnt resold)?

    Any more ideas?

    PS: Can anyone tell me all the 'limits' twitter imposes on an account? with API and without,

    Thanks!

    .

    flashtweet.com does everything you said except adding accounts .....

    CURRENT limits as of today:

    • 1,000 updates per day
    • 1,000 direct messages per day
    • 150 API requests per hour (just increased)
    • Follow limit (seems to be 500 currently)
    • unfollow 200-500 (seems to vary)
    The API limit times you out until 60 minutes from the FIRST hit. (resets hourly)

    For more info go to Twitter API wiki .....

    Thanks for the help! So should I stick with API or send POST data directly to twitter? o_O

    It's up to you how you're developing your app ..... If you can figure out how to send the post directly to twitter without the API then it should show as "from web".

    I can't figure out how to do it though.
