    Hey. I was just wondering how risky it would be to run a script/bot on my personal account. I currently have 38k followers, but don't wanna risk getting banned. I decided to do a shoutout page, and auto like with imacros, but I only get the about 60 followers a day from the top tags. I run it to do every 15-20 seconds.

    Doing anything beyond pure whitehat risks your account. There's no obvious way to gauge risk other than common sense. The farther you move away from "organic" behavior, the greater the probability your account will be disabled.

    I would not recommend botting a good twitter account, especially one that you want to hold on to. Also the frequency of which you'd be doing things is highly unnatural. I'm pretty sure you'd lose your account pretty quick. You should setup a couple of test accounts using separate private proxies. Experimenting and learning the thresholds twitter uses is definitely your best bet.
