    Hello fellow BlackHatters,

    It's been over 2 weeks since the Phone Verification Wave from Twitter and am still having issues with SMS and EMAIL verifications.

    Accounts that were once following 700-800 a day are down to 100-200 follows a day and still locking up. Are we any closer to figuring out what the issues are that are flagging twitter to put these accounts into lockdown? Is it limited to FollowLiker? MassPlanner? Is it a proxy thing?

    Have we figured out how to bring back the days of following 700-800 a day or are those days gone? Any information you could share would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

    What's your setup?
    Accounts per proxy/phone number, account's age, email provider?

    Hello Davis! (waves to you)

    1 account per proxy. 10 accounts per phone number. All accounts are over a year old. As for email provider, they would be a mix of yahoo, gmail, godaddy. I'm using both FollowLiker and MassPlanner. 99% of my accounts are from FL.

    Above are standard settings I use and this still gets me flagged. Any ideas Davis?

    Hey man,
    I'm pretty sure that in your case it's number of accounts per phone number. 10 is too much. I've 4 per number and i had to reverify couple times after ban wave with following 700-900 daily.

    Hmmm.... in Twitter's terms of service, they mention up to 10 phone numbers is possible. But even that account you see screenshots of, that's from the own users phone (which has one number associated to it) and its still being flagged. I don't suspect that's the issue as I have some accounts with only a single phone # being flagged and ones with multiple accounts being flagged as well.

    Can anyone verify Davis' find? If so, it looks like I'm buying LOTS of sim cards. (sigh)

    Thank you Davis!

    Check out "twitter phone reverification" thread, i guess someone recentely posted about exact problem.
    I plan to experiment a bit soon and start 100 accounts with unique number and proxy each. Let's see how it goes :)
    Also what proxy provider do you use? (PM me if don't want to share it in public).

    I am not entirely sure what they are doing.

    yesterday i created a twitter account for a new project (all legit) and they ghosted it after i tweeted three times. legit urls etc (not even my site).
    I am not exactly sure what they are doing, I am almost sure it has nothing to do with botting though. One of my accounts still is on 600 followers a day without any problem whatsoever.

    the worst part: I can't unghost my accounts, because the twitter txts me an incomplete code :(

    Xinga... Curious... Was that account created using a .ru email?

    Btw... What's an incomplete code and what bot are you using?

    no, it was once a hotmail (so outlook.com) and once a gmx.net address. No russian stuff.
    Incomplete code as in: they texted me the code, and the code was wrong. The text message was missing characters. Already contacted the support team.

    As for bot: am using FL and Massplaner but these accounts got ghosted WITHOUT even botting. just tweeting a bit after account creation. Were rather insightful posts (from other sources) and i linked to them.
    Wanted to create a few accounts for a new project. *shrug*

    I don't think it is because of the phone numbers as I had 30 of my accounts suspended and they all had individual phone numbers
