    Hi,

    I've been a "follower" of BHW for a several months but never registered and been following some of the methods for Twitter growth, mainly follow/unfollow. I run a YouTube channel and gaining subs/views via Twitter has been going well.. up until this week.

    I've been using TMB to follow/unfollow, 1000 following per day, unfollowing after 72 hours on my main account (60k followers) and on others, 500-700 (ranging from 10k-40k). Now, I can't follow more than 100 users on a 2-4 second random interval without going on a follow limit. Each account is verified via SMS and email, and using a private UK proxy.

    Is this a new limit on how many you can follow a minute? Or even a second?

    Cheers

    apparently Twitter is causing havock with various 3rd party services. i have tried many services and kept getting errors and had to keep disconnecting the service and re-connecting. Something to to with the Twitter API i am told.
    Each service has told me Twitter keeps messing with their API

    I've left it for 28 hours. I tried using TMB, 80 followers in on EVERY account - same "follow limit" error. I've tried manually doing it, same result. I've tried extensions and my YouTube channel relies on new traffic from Twitter.

    Any more help?

    I'm following in excess of 300 daily with followliker per account, but I can't be sure that it won't do more than that. I was also doing 800-1000 follows daily just a couple weeks ago, so maybe something has changed.

    Of course FL doesn't use the API, so maybe that's why I'm at least still able to do well over the 300 follow actions per day. I hope I can get back to the 800-1000 range soon. No problems with SMS on any of my accounts over the past week with FL.

    Would you say investing in FL is worth doing then? I don't want to spend $97 on a program that won't sort the issue out!

    It is absolutely a good investment, or at least it has been for me having easily paid for itself several times over already. If you are in a niche that scales, and you have some disposable capital for proxies subscriptions and also have a good home device, a second home device, or an active VPS subscription - then YES you should buy FL, and use it, and it will solve the problems - just not the way you described.

    FL is one of the best purchases I made this year. All my accounts are growing nicely, and it's fully automated - though it did take me quite some time to get things rolling and setup right, and it's a work in progress.

    In relation to this - I found a solution. I only have 6 accounts so it works well for me - statusbrew. Whitelisted API meaning no limit on follows per second.
