    thought I would share something I have discovered. I signed up for twitter account on desktop pc , even though it has over 5k followers it only allows me to follow around 400 a day. This number has been creeping up slowly since October, the progress is so slow.

    Now, last week I signed up for a second account , but I did it on my phone. This account FROM THE BEGINNING is letting me follow over 900 a day!

    so, don't know if this will work for everyone but I thought I would share the knowledge

    Have you tested this on just 1 account?

    It could be that twitter may be more lenient with phones since not a lot of people are abusing it. That was the case with m.facebook.com a few years ago.
