Hi guys, I started experimenting with twitter about a month ago. Since I am a big fan of scaling up things I decided to code my own bot, to search potential accounts to follow, to follow their users and occasionally unfollow people. So I created a bot in PHP and let it run with different settings from very conservative to fairly agressive on several accounts. The bot uses the twitter API so it needs a twitter app. That seems to be a source of problems. To autopost tweets I use WP blog with nextscripts plugin, so there are two custom apps added to each of my twitter accounts... The problem is, twitter can 'see' that I do the follow/unfollow dance via PHP so presumably I am using automated methods. Time to time my accounts got suspended, nothing new in that, most of the time one mail to support can fix that. However, recently my apps got suspended to. Writing permission blocked, and it seems like a bigger problem as not only I can't autofollow anymore even my autoposter plugin can't work. BTW the bot I made is very effective and it builds up follower base pretty fast. Then it comes to the 1,000-1,500 followers limit and boom. My question is, is there anybody who successfully created follow-unfollow bots using twitter API/PHP? Could anybody give me some advise what to do what to avoid? Or is the PHP way completely dead? I'd really appreciate any help or insight.
