    In setting up a twitter account is it necessary to have various IPs, especially if you are setting up a large amount of them?

    Definitely set them up with different IPs, when twitter ban, they often ban all from one ip that have been created on or around the same day.

    The best way to stop the ban is to make them look really good and to tweet other things from them apart from your offers or porn links;), other than that just turn and burn as many as you can.

    Yes, you need different IPs. You can create up to 10 accounts from a single IP in a 24 hour period - on the 11th attempt, it will tell you "You Can't do That Right Now", and all previous 10 accounts will be marked for deletion.

    The best way to market on Twitter at this point is to understand that your account WILL be banned, likely within 24 hours - sometimes within an hour. For example, mass following will now cause auto-banning because if a certain percentage of follows result in the person blocking you you're automatically suspended.

    I used to create a large number of accounts (thousands), then wait a day to see which ones they ban, then customize and follow from all accounts in a huge batch. They've become wise to that strategy.

    What I'm starting to do is a single account at time, and do everything very quickly. I use automated software to create an account, customize it with the API (links, background, images, tweets with whatever links you want in them, etc.) and immediately follow up to 980 (until the API starts spitting back at us - sometimes it's 200-500) people. With the right software from beginning to end you can do all of this - including the follows - within 30 seconds for each account. Then it creates the next one. The accounts all get banned within hours (sometimes minutes) but they're still the cheapest clicks around.

    So, just do one at a time and ride each account until the wheels fall off. They usually last only a few hours, but if you're monetizing properly you can still make a little something above your captcha solving costs. You don't need to worry about unfollowing - the accounts will die too quickly to ever get to the point where you follow 2,000.

    I think thefish2010's explanation is pretty much perfect for the high volume turn and burn. Use automations to create as many as you can in the shortest period that you can and don't worry about them.

    BUT there is also the the long haul route which has it's benefits. I have 3 sites that have between 15k and 50k followers in legit fields. I use them to feed blogs and also do sponsored tweets from them. They get around 50-200 new followers a day and each tweet gets around 50-1000 clicks.

    Well it is not 10/IP now and it has reduced to about 2-3 per IP only and you have to regulate your proxy for next set of accounts.

    I think you're right. I created 9 off of the same IP yesterday and they all got flagged. I don't mass create so it's no big deal to me, but they're making it tougher for those who are.

    If you create the accounts using proxies, do you then have to revisit using proxies? I just want around 10-20 long term accounts, thinking of getting mTurk to set them up, but will need to visit them myself to tweet etc. Can I use just one IP to do this regular stuff?

    So what about logging into the accounts? Say you have 5k accounts that didn't get banned from creation. What if you log into all of them with the same IP?

    Yes, if you are doing anything with lots of accounts from a single IP in a short span your accounts will all die.
