    I noticed TWITTER is cutting down on Tweets and DM's - and I beleive watching IP addresses

    If you BH on TWITTER - use a proxy and be carefull

    This is nothing new. Always use proxies and be careful how many friends you add, and tweets and DMs you send. This has happened to me before and it's a pain in the ass but all you can do now is rebuild and be more cautious in the future.

    i've lost two acc with 25k+ followers each few months ago...and i'm pretty sure there are a few other BHW members who lost their acc with more than mine

    14k+ not a big deal if the followers are not targeted, two weeks and you have another 1, 2, 3 or lot more...never give up mate

    I lost an account with 7000 followers and gave up the twitter thing. It's just a zillion people spamming each other, and you get no real quality traffic from it.

    This is true I had 3 accounts 2 with over 50k and 1 with 120k. I might get one back but there are losses with anything.

    Should you use proxy every time you log in or just when setting the accounts up?

    I lost 20k+ from total of 5 accounts a few months ago. It's taken me about 4 months to build up again. Currently 6 targeted accounts with total of 16,500 fillowers. Slow but sure and very cautious now.:D

    Twitter does have a business account I believe and while its not blackhat free it will keep you for getting the smackdown.

    I think I have to agree with the TWITTER BECOMING A SPAM place. People spamming each other, fake pics, fake locations, fake bio's - and it's turned into a SAFELIST with 140 characters...

    Twitter has become the old FFA pages , for IM..
    Facebooks is fastly becoming the same thing.

    Social Networks are becoming what they are for to being with, social networks
    for friends, family and old military buddies

    Twitter is a SPAMFEST. I have a hard time getting conversions from Twitter.

    People better get careful while using tricks to add bulk twitter followers to their account. There was a loophole in Twitter earlier, and I think they have fixed it. :eek:
