    Sorry if this is in the wrong forum but I was wondering i'v been banned a lot for aggressive following on other accounts if you have 100k followers or so and you just go around to follow trains and spam follow on all the ones that look like they'll eventually follow back will you still be banned for aggressive following eventually or does having that many followers take that option off the table?

    Your chances of suspension go down as you get more followers and especially if you can get verified, but I have had accounts with well over 100k followers, mixture of real and fake, get suspended both ways, slap on the wrist, and perma ban. So the answer is be careful when mass following, regardless of your follower count IMO.

    Ouch, it hurt a little bit when I got one of my account permabanned (20k+) I can't imagine losing 100k. However, I definitely notice the chances of getting suspended go slim when you have not just lots of followers, but people who RT you, mentions you, and less of others who reports your account for spamming
