    Hi everyone,

    Just would like to say thanks heaps to the members of BHW that have given me lists of Twitter i.d's, or have shared them on here.

    The problem is that with Twitter you can only follow a certain amount of other Twitter users at once. This seems to occur for me when I reach 2000 (following). I have no idea how the limit for this can be increased. The software package I have only helps with sending bulk Tweets to the people that follow me, of which number 708 currently. I wonder if there is a way of getting around the limits Twitter imposes.

    Anyone got some ideas?

    It will increase when you have more than or 2000 followers.

    Once you have 2000 or more followers you can then have 2000 + 10% following limit.

    So if you have exact 2000 followers, your following limit will be 2200

    But the number is not exactly 2000. Based on my tests, its between 1800 to 2000

    Thanks for the advice,
    Just so frustrating that I can't follow alot of people, but I guess thats the way Twitter goes... Am looking for similar networks that don't have rules as strict as Twitter but at least the software I got enables me to send mass messages to the 700 or so that do follow me

    No problem.

    Thats their way to combat the follow and unfollow bots. But you can always create many accounts and build thousand followers for each account.

    If you want to get over the 2000 limit, you could beginn to follow twitter-users that will definetly follow back! (Just search for those "follow back lists" they are either on google and also a lot of twitterians are having listed those people up.)

    Unfollow those that are not following you, and beginn to follow the "follow-back´ers".

    If you have successfully crossed the limit you can once again beginn to follow those that you are targeting! (Until the next limit!).
