    My account was suspended today for mass following. I'm using tweetadder3. I must have followed 1000 people today. What limit usually keeps you off the radar from being suspended? After I get my account back I want to follow at a safe rate.

    Don't be aggressive with following/de-following and you'll be fine at any number. Of course the least number of accounts you do this with, the least often Twitter will hammer you.

    I use TweetAdder as well. How many accounts are you using? I was able to follow 1000 people a day (with a pause of 1-3 seconds) on three accounts (w/o proxies or with public proxies) for a very long time, then I added two new accounts and followed 200 on each and they got suspended.

    If you only have one account, it may have been because it was fairly new or you set the pause between follows too low. When I create a Twitter for a business/venture, I usually get a bunch of "real" followers first on Twiends and then I begin my follow/unfollow method to get targeted followers

    I'm only using one account and today was my first day using tweetadder lol. I followed 1000 very quickly. I guess if i leave it on automatic and follow one person every few minutes i will be fine. And i bought 12000 followers from fiverr first.

    How old is the account? New accounts are far more likely to be suspended. Chances are the followers you bought on fiverr were fake. II'm not 100% sure if Twitter penalizes you for that in anyway.

    Try just setting the time between follows to a bigger number (ex. 5-10 seconds) Then follow 100 people a day, then 200, then 300, etc and learn what works for that account. Twitter is really random with their suspensions a lot of the time.

    I'm not a big fan of the automatic following function in TweetAdder. I found that I would tell it to follow 800 people over the course of the day and it wouldn't even get close to meeting that.

    Yeah the account is less than a week old so that probably added to it. And the accounts from fiverr were mostly from brazil lol. I will try to follow in increments when i get my account back like u said. How long does it usually take to get it back?

    I keep getting suspended as well with 1 new account I made recently and have been using with TweetAdder3. I have not followed or unfollowed aggressively either. Other older accounts work fine with TA and don't get blocked. It's weird.

    MASS FOLLOWING - DONT DO THAT. I used tweetattacks for the last 2 weeks & operated over 200 accounts with a super speed. every single account suspended.

    Now i have slowed down well and left the accounts inactive for a while.

    Im using TweetAdder 3 and its going fine so far.

    You need to emulate human behavior, and no human can follow 1000 people so quickly so use the automation settings and have it follow a person every 3-7 minutes for example. I follow about 30-50 people a day and build your follow list progressively. It soon adds up. Then you can hit your account with subtle messages enticing your audience to click a link pointing to a money site.

    Just this morning i added a tweet on one account pointing to a new product on an amazon site of mine and i sold 1 unit, out of 39 followers. Imagine that list been 3900 followers and more. I wouldn't burn the twitter accounts just so you can have a massive list straight away, they are valuable if you use them correctly.

    i do it with quality proxies.. and follow only around 200-250 followers (twice a day). but I use around 20 accounts a day. One of my accounts got banned once because of a proxy issue and because of unfollowing over 800 follwers (had a delivery that day).. otherwise tweetattacks is still safe.. you can use it..
