    You can follow a lot more than 200 people per day once your account is aged and has a decent number of followers. Twitter only bans newish accounts

    well, depends

    i didn't spam twitter, i did aggressive following/unfollowing for 2 years with one aged account, it means i followed the max limit each and every day which is around 1k depending on your account standing, i also unfollowed hundreds daily, and my account is still in good standing, so if you do aggressive following with an aged account, you can easily get away with it, but if you mix this with link spamming, you don't have too much chance

    OP asked about the limits, those are the technical limits i posted above

    it's another question how much one should follow w/o getting banned, if you ask 10 people, they will say 10 version of the truth, this number is highly depending on things like account age, follower:following ratio etc.

    Your right about that.I have a aged Twitter account and you can be more aggressive with it.On new accounts,I've gotten away with following 400-500 a day if its non adult.

    s on age and use of account I follow 1,000 per day, never been warned or banned. it matters at the rate of your clicks. I set to follow 1,000 at 70 second intervals while I sleep using the free MiniTwitterTool that Luke90 posted here on BHW (search for it because I'm not hunting down the link for your lazy asses). I use ManageFlitter to unfollow 500 or less per day,

    Also once you are passed following 2,000 you can only follow at a 10% ratio. ie. If you have 2,000 following you you can follow 2,200. If you have 3,500 following you then you can add 350 higher than that (3,850). So if you have over 10,000 followers you can easily make out your 1,000 follows a day no prob. Just make sure the click rate is slow enough to look organic.
