    Hey guys!
    I know that a lot of us getting Phone RE-confirmation requests daily.
    I'm getting about 1-2 per day with my 100-120 accounts.

    Let's share some thoughts about what the reasons of asking RE-confirm?
    Just have no idea what's the filter or account's activity leads to re-confirmation request.

    Hitting the limits too often
    Attempting to follow/like/tweet/message a shit ton more than you're allowed to in one day
    Too many accounts on same IP

    The average person doesn't follow 1000 people in one day, let alone attempt to follow 1000 more after Twitter tells them that their daily follow limit has been reached. Make it seem human.

    This is very true

    Also, I would suggest that sometimes you can go too hard and fast on accounts in the beginning, following 500 accounts a day may seem normal if you have a network of 100 accounts that are mature, but when you upscale and build new accounts you have to take things much slower!

    The same applies to DM's, Tweets, Money Tweets, Unfollowing etc... When I make new accounts I don't unfollow people for 10 days, it seems unlikely that a new user of Twitter would unfollow anyone within a few days as they are new and have not had time to grow to hate certain accounts.

    You can combat that by doing less actions or the same amount, but with bigger delays and in batches leaving big delays between two batch. Imho hitting a limit doesn't always cause trouble. I run 100 accs, i always hit the following limit every single day and i hardly get any re-verification request lately, on the rare occasions i do, it can be done via email. You just need an intelligent bot, which stops the actions, when the acc hit a limit and doesn't try and try again until the acc gets flagged.
    But of course you need to choose your limits wisely, according to your account age.

    Also, if you email verify your PVAs, you don't necessarily need to re-verify by phone, oftentimes Twitter offers to choose between phone or email re-verify, so you can go with the latter, in case if you don't have access to the phone number anymore or if you do have it, just don't want to pay the re-verification fee.

    But to begin with, you need quality accs. If you buy the accs, you can never be sure, how they were created exactly. How many accs were created from the same ip address, how many accs were verified from the same phone number, so even with you doing nothing, you can get a re-verification request outta nowhere and you won't be able to find any explanation. If someone fucks up something, whose accs were created from the same ips as yours, your accs will be affected too regardless that you done everything by the book.

    I'd say, don't be too unsatisfied with the 1-2 re-verification request per day out of 100-120 accs, it's part of the botting game and not that bad at all. :)

    Good point. I remember a time when I was able to follow 1000 people within just 5-10 minutes. Now if you follow exactly 100 people with a delay of 1 second or less in between they require you to wait 60 seconds before you can follow more. Unsure when that update happened, but I can definitely see how performing too many actions too quickly could raise some red flags


    Honestly though, I can not remember the last time I have even been given the option to re-verify by email. If they don't just flat out ban me, they usually just ask me prove that I am the owner of the phone number via SMS or (more commonly) to just type out the full phone number that the account is associated with
