    I am losing accounts everyday. I don't want to appeal because they might connect these accounts to the other healthy accounts that have links from same domain.

    Should I request unsuspension?

    I plan to do some twitter botting but have seen so many people on BHW complaining about Twitter banning their accounts en masse. What do you guys think is the reason for all these bans. Do aggressive settings increase your likeliness of getting banned or do you think it has to do with something else?

    The setting plays a role, but that's not the only reason. Sometimes Twitter just suspend your account just after you make it .
    Here what happens to me most of the time:
    - I keep delays long. Following 1 user every 300 seconds.
    - I keep daily limit very low. Following 50 users per day.
    - After one day Twitter asks for email confirmation.
    - Second day Twitter asks for password reset.
    - Third day Twitter asks for SMS verification.
    - If I pass all above, it asks for SMS verification 2-3 times every week for a around one month, then stops.
    - After 2-3 months it suspends 10%-20% of the accounts. Maybe Twitter users reported that I tweet many links.


    I have been working with Twitter more than four months now and I am in loss. I spent much money at the beginning and now I spend around $100 per month for VPS , proxies, SIM cards, websites and domain hosting ...etc
    I gain around $ 20- $ 40 . This means that I am in loss. I keep telling myself that it will take few months until I can make some profit, but feel disappointed so far.

    Twitter has been spammed to death from what I've seen over the years. However, for those of you complaining about Twitter banning your accounts, one question for you fellas: were you using data center proxies or residential ip addresses? I ask because it will give me an idea whether this mass banning pertains to the types of ip's being used.

    Do you mean this literally or is it an exaggeration? I'm just asking, because lately i also lose some accs in every two weeks or so, but when i do, i lose them in a few hours in a single day within the same wave, then there is a pause for 2 weeks. Last time i lost accs on Wednesday, before that a few days prior New Year's Eve. I definitely don't lose accs every day.

    If the accounts are botted and your intent is obvious with them, Twitter won't unsuspend them, so i wouldn't bother. They will reply, but the accs will stay suspended. I managed to get only legit accs back, never botted ones.

    I don't know this for a fact, but your fear might be real about them linking your existing accs to the suspended ones.

    Btw if they suspend only 10-20% of your accounts, that's not that bad and you should be looking at a profit, not a loss. There might be something wrong with your monetization plan and/or the amount you follow is very low. Unless you use hundreds of accs, the traffic you generate can be also low. It won't kill your accs sooner, if you follow more, even a couple hundred is safe. I follow close to the max daily limit and i don't lose more accounts than you, if we speak in percentages.

    You can only fight fire with fire.

    The issue is a little more complicated than that we could answer this with a categorical yes or a no.

    There are two main approaches when it comes to creating and managing accs:
    (1) You create the accs yourself using a proxy/your own ip and you keep using the accs with their belonging ips. In this case you could tell with a bigger certainty, if the suspensions are ip related or no.
    I believe most of us don't do this or at least out of those who push volume, those (we) follow approach two, which is:
    (2) You purchase the accs and use them with whatever datacenter private proxy you buy.

    I can only speak of approach two, although i have everything at my disposal to create accs in bulk, but i find it easier to buy them.
    Most of us use more than one account on the same proxy and even if you use only 2 accs per proxy, there's no consistency in the suspensions. Sometimes they ban all the accs on the same ip (which can be a coincidence), sometimes only one and let the other one live. Or if you use 4 accs per proxy, it's very rare to lose all 4 in the same wave or even just 3 out of 4. These suspension waves aren't managing proxy related.
    It's another question that if you buy the accs, you can never be sure what kind of ips were used to create the accs or how many accs were created using the same ip. And if we don't know this with 100% certainty, we won't know if the reason of the suspensions was ip related or no. You only experience that the suspensions are seemingly random.

    The account creation - just like on many other social media site - is delicate and that's when the quality of the ip matters more, at least that's what i think. For this purpose it would make sense to use residential ips or your own (dynamic) home ips vs. the ones you purchase from datacenter proxy providers. But residential proxies are quite expensive, so it might not worth it after all, if we lose only 10-20% of our accs with these waves.
