    Stay under 35 per day than you are safe, like 2 - 35 per day, make the interval large

    When an account is new and you started to follow with it just now, Twitter asks you to change your password once (this can be done both via email or phone number and it happens after a couple of follows), if you did that, you can follow for another day. On the next day they will ask you to phone verify your account, if it's already verified, you need to re-verify it with the linked phone number. If you did this, you can follow again for another day. On the next day, they will ask you to re-verify again (usually this is the last one), if you did this, they will leave you alone (if you only follow), you can follow as much as you want inside sane limits of course. :)

    Do you tweet too? Often tweeting can trigger phone verify too. If you do both (follow, tweet) and you already passed the initial verifications, it's not the following activity, which triggers the phone verify, but the tweeting.

    When I stay within the 2-35 I never get any verification (now over 2 month) and I tweet as well. (400 accounts do the same). Not even after the account was created. Strange right.

    So 35 per account is ok? no need phone numbers? 500 accounts enought to drive 5k visitors per day?

    Actually no, it's not strange at all, you stay within the limits which triggers the account locks. But that's just too slow for most of us i think, in that pace it will take an eternity to build the accounts taking into account Twitter's pretty shitty user engagement. If you pass the first couple verification requests, Twitter will leave you alone and you can follow a lot more than just 35 per day. This is a trade-off i guess.
    For the same amount of traffic you can either use less PVAs or a lot more non-PVAs, but in that case you will need more proxies, more domains, so at the end of the day, it won't worth it more than likely and PVAs would be the better choice.

    Hi so what you mean - each task triggers a verification. Let;s assume I only follow - nothing else - after three verification waves they leave you alone. But when I start with same acounts to post, verification starts again three times then it is finished and if you do not change your settings dramatically they leave you alone?

    Each task: no, certain tasks: yes. Such tasks are following and tweeting, at least those ones i know about. What i wrote above, it was regarding to following, that they will leave you alone after 1 password reset and two phone verifications.

    I'm not sure about tweeting, whether they will leave you alone or not. If you get locked for tweeting, the account can get suspended after a few locks, at least this is my experience, so i decided not to push it, lately i post only 1 pinned image tweet with an url per account and that's it.

    It's not just the tasks themselves, but the amount too. You figured it out, if you keep your daily following very low, you won't trigger phone verification and that way you can still use non-PVAs.

    True - How do you avoid twitter URL ban? I realized that I get my URL checked as Unsafe (chrome browser) when I tweet the Url too often.

    How many accounts do you have and how many traffic per day by following 35 members a day?

    Currently 400 accounts run on this setting, traffic difficult to say as traffic is redirected to different sites

    It's pretty simple, i use one domain per account and i don't spam the url.
    When i posted a lot of tweets, i posted maybe 100 per account daily, which is still well below the limit. I think it also depends on what are you pushing exactly. My accounts are set up for status updates, which requires an url to be posted, otherwise it doesn't make too much sense. The followers follow my accounts, because they're interested in the updates, so i guess they don't report my urls too often. Twitter rarely blacklists domains, when you go with conservative settings like mine, even if an account gets suspended, you can reuse the domain on another account. I have around 120 domains which i use with Twitter for a year now and maybe i have 5 blacklisted out of those. You don't have to use expensive domains, .coms. I use new gTLDs, which go for quite cheap sometimes, $1 a pop or even cheaper. So it's really not that expensive to use 1 domain per account and it worth it.

    I use 100 accs at any given moment, but it's not me who follows 35/day, it's the other guy i replied to above. I follow a couple hundred per account per day, roughly 50-60k total daily.

    With following only 35/day/acc, i'd imagine the traffic to be pretty low unless you have hundreds upon hundreds of accounts.

    I personally use 2 accs per proxy, but i'd say 5 is pretty safe too.

    Although Twitter doesn't really state anything about ips, but it's in the Twitter rules, that you can use a phone number to verify up to 10 accs. If we think about this for a sec, this basically says that we're allowed to have 10 accs tied to the same phone number, so we might as well use them under the same ip. I'm not saying that it would be 100% safe, but it appears to be allowed as per Twitter rules. It also depends on other things, settings or if there's any other way to link the accs together (e.g. a domain) other than the ip. If you keep the accounts separated, you can get away with relatively high proxy:account ratios.
    An evergreen example for this is the Twitter accs of students on campuses or the Twitter accs of people who use public wifi connections in cafes etc., where hundreds of people use the same ips, yet their accs won't get banned for the simple reason, because those accounts aren't tied by anything else, but the ip. If you can successfully mimic this, you'll get away with higher proxy:account ratios.

    In short: Using 5 accs on the same ip won't get you suspended in itself.
