    Hi all,

    I currently have 2000 twitter friends and 948 followers but for some reason my friends does not increase more than 2000.

    I am using Humingbird for this purpose. Does anyone have any ideas why this would be the case?

    Regards. Pari.

    Yes, You can not follow more than 2000 if you do not have a certain # of followers back. Log in Twitter, Try and follow someone, and you will see the message.

    This is why around 1000 followers you start unfollowing those not following back (usually absolutely none) Id start doing that now, get to 1800 then can keep following then unfollow again etc.

    :)

    i guess you've never heard of the infamous 2000 following limit on twitter, as i can't explain it better, check out this article:
    Code:

    it was also discussed here a million times before

    It's a pain in the backside I have over 2500 but you can't go over the 10% rule.

    Especially when they unfollow and you can't follow anyone else because you don't have enough Followers.

    Easy. If you have an account that people want to follow, then you don't even have to follow anybody at all. ie. Barrack Obama or Lady Gaga

    I think he's trying to say how do normal people get that many followers without being exceptionally funny, spend all day on there, or offer anything in particular.

    I've spent alot of time on twitter and didn't have much success with it, but, by looks of now, I'd actually get facebook account and get followers off there, make them work together until you got enough pull.
