    It won't let me follow anyone. I know I havn't hit the friend limit either because I have 800 following and 1200 followers. Has anyone ever had this happen and did it go away? I was thinking it would go away after a few hours but its been around 12 now.

    probably because you are following too many people already.

    The rule of thumb is that you may only follow your followers + 10% after you pass 1000 or 2000 I cant remember which.

    use a tool like tweetattacks to unfollow people who have not followed you back after x amount of days to free up space to follow others.

    You might have hit the daily limit. Slow down a little and don't follow anyone back for a few hours.

    I'm below it. I'm following 900 and there are 1300 following me.

    Thanks! This is probably it...

    Yep theres also a daily limit which increases exponentially after you pass 2000 followers.

    I have tweetattacks running 24/7 on various accounts so Im used to this happening by now

    go to twitter rules and will find all the details on following and unfollowing.. daily limits and per hour limit as well on follow, unfollow, sending direct messages limits, daily and hourly tweeting limits.
