    Hi, I just start the mass following stuff on Twitter.
    I'm stupid enough got my account suspend which let Tweet Attack run overnight targeting followers. Reach 3x times Max Limit and got suspended.

    Now Twitter re-open my account because I make some excuses to it, now I rather go for Twiends and outsource for the guy to do the job.

    Here the question. My Twitter now became nearly 2k following from 33! I want to get rid of them by using Mass Unfollow, so will I got suspend if I mass unfollow so many people at a time?

    This you need to know, if u follow someone, Twitter may send notification email to the person, but as I know Twitter never send UNfollow notify emails. I just want to know will I get ban if Mass Unfollow about 1k people. I want to get my Twitter account back to 'normal' now.

    Thanks for the answer!

    Yes excessive unfollowing can get you suspended just like excessive following. I suggest just unfollowing over the time of a week or so. Maybe 150-200/day or less to be safer.

    Once I had unfollowed 3K followers to clean my account! There was a random delay from 1 to 5 seconds between each unfollow, that might be the reason my account didn't fell on Twitter's radar :)
