    I just bought Tweet-adder after using both Hummingbird 1 and 2 and Bird Feeder. My main account has almost 18,000 followers with me following about the same number. I know that Twitter will suspend accounts for excessive following/unfollowing, so I want to be careful. But having said that, what are the daily limits I can follow and unfollow with Tweetadder while remaining under the radar enough to avoid account suspension? Obviously I want to build up as large a following as quickly as possible, but I'd rather err on the side of caution. With Birdfeeder I was unfollowing and following about 900-1000 per day, but only unfollowing those who weren't following back after being followed for more than 5 days. But I'm thinking maybe I was pushing the envelope too much with those numbers and was just lucky to not get suspended?

    If you use tweetAdder I am sure your account are not suspense. Tweetadder are too slow to follow or unfollow. This software will exchange twitter user between server of tweetadder and software. That cause slow if follow and unfollow.

    Yeah you can get suspended for that. It is based on total follow/unfollow and trends with your account. It has happened to me when I was following/unfollowing the daily maxs.

    I had a bad experience too---but just for using an automated software. Had added 60 people in 4 days. Got suspended even for that and appeal did not work too

    It's random. It depends more on the twitter activity on your ip than how much you follow or unfollow. The safe bet is trying to look natural as to not arouse Twitter's suspension.
