    Been enjoying some success with Hummingbird over the last few weeks but I've just had loads of accounts suspended. All I've been doing is adding up to 1000 a day with a few posts using private proxies rotated every 5 or so creations.

    Has anyone else experienced any problems lately?

    It you don't appear legit, you're going to get bans. Simple as that.

    Maybe some of the proxies are getting you banned. I have had many success with all my twitter accounts (20+) and not one suspended. I add 600 new follows per day, and unfollow every 3 days. I get about 250+ new followers per day doing this.

    My recommends is not to do the full max limit twitter allows you to do.

    From over 500 accounts now I've learned that Twitter doesn't ban based on the IP you use the account with. It bans based on the IP it was created with. I could be wrong but this very much seems to be the case.

    i have 2 accounts above 20k, i rape the system (follow the limit 1000/day, unfollow about 1000 people in every 3 days), so i have +500-600 followers/day, i don't reply anyone about 2 weeks ago, don't write any genuine tweet (in fact i don't write any tweets at all), just spamming revtwt links (4 tweets with links/day/acc) and my accounts are still alive....but i recommend you to do not try this at home :D

    I keep it down to about 400 a day, a lot of people seem to be getting away with more. I also don't spam the hell out of them, just posting marketing links every few days. Sprinkle in some retweets too. That seems to help.

    It looks like twitter is cracking down over the last couple of days they seem to have implemented some sort of automated check that is shutting down accounts that they think don't meet their T&C I had 2 accounts closed so made 4 more :)

    mmm looks like it might have been a one off luckily - either a clear out or bad IP's. Just done another 10 accounts and they have stuck.

    I thin that updating daily keeps your account healthy. I have a system that does just that but It's manual. I don't even have to come up with what to tweet. the tweets are automatic.

    think twitter did an update, fresh new account and Adding people maxed at 499.
    Could have been a bug.

    well you must be doing something wrong. Are they targeted to your niche?
