    Hey, I've slowly been trying to build up 450 twitter accounts with 4 per proxy but have been hit with a bunch of bans the past day or two. I think only about 100 accounts are left but I'm not sure what has caused this. I had header images, profile pictures, believable names and bought the accounts from 247accs.com. They were API phone verified accounts accounts that only followed about 50 per day, some days being closer to 100 and some closer to 20 or so. The main suspicious thing that I probably should have taken more care of was that I only tweeted once or twice with the accounts, even though I had them following for the past two months. I had this happen before and thought that easing into it would slow it down but that doesn't seem to be the case. Just wanted to see if any of this could be reason for a large number of them being suspended? Is having them all verified by Russian numbers a possible cause? I have multiple proxy providers but am using the same proxies that had mass bans about 2-3 months ago....Haven't had any trouble with any other site but this for some reason, really want to figure out what the cause is, any help is appreciated.

    Twitter is really cracking down on multiple accounts in the past month or so, I've lost around 200 out of 10,000 accounts that I am running. I've moved from 4 accounts to 3 per proxy, but I haven't noticed a major difference in banning rate, just a precaution.

    the thing is you don't know how many times a phone number is used to verify accounts, twitter allows 10, but those accs from that point are linked, you won't be able to know either how many accs were created from the same ip address, same issue, accs created on the same ip address are linked together
    if you buy accounts, you can never be sure about these things, so after that you can do everything by the book and you still can get suspended

    were they outright suspended or just asking for phone verify?

    They were completely suspended, I feel like it might be the phone number issue but am not completely sure.

    Oh that sucks. That's one of the problems of just buying lots of accounts. You can never tell what causes the ban. It's always a gamble I guess.

    Yeah it does, I'm just gonna make them myself this time... One last question though, could there be anyway Twitter is catching my accounts through API? They have different apps for the most part and are certainly not being abused, but there must be a footprint in my accounts somewhere....

    Twitter is changing. I suppose they finally realized their growth is fucked and is going nowhere, time to downsize, require all active accounts to become 'high quality' aka PVA and whatever else they use to define them as such, and therefore become a 'boutique' service. Wonder what will take their place...
