    I know generally its considered safe to run around 4-7 accounts following 400-800 people a day per IP address on twitter.

    However what if you have many 2k+ follower accounts?

    For example if I have 5 accounts that each have 20k followers can I run all of these from one IP address maxing out at the 10% limit of 2000 each per day. Totaling 10000 follows from that single IP address? Or is it best to stick to one IP per account if I'm going to max out this 10% limit?

    Does anyone have any experience with this?

    That's pretty tough to answer OP. I'm at 5 accounts on one IP following max 1000 per day nothing has happened so far. I never pushed it 2000, is it even possible to follow 2000 per day now? Have you tried it before?

    I thought you could follow up to 10% of your following number per day after 2000 followers. This is from twitter.com

    "Every account can follow 2,000 users total. Once you?ve followed 2,000 users, there are limits to the number of additional users you can follow. This number is different for each account and is based on your ratio of followers to following; this ratio is not published. "

    Not sure where I got 10% from lol but it seems right on my tests. I have accounts that have 5k followers, following just over 5k and they've hit the limit. Just want to know how far I can push it when going past the 2k mark with number of accounts per IP addresses.
