    Hi

    I created 7 accounts w 7 new proxies and edited profile etc

    Tweeted one tweet (link) and then left them.

    Checked on them couple of days later = ALL BANNED

    Why?

    Any explanation?

    (I didn't verify email but I don't think you need to)

    Thanks

    Did you tweet the same exact post/link on all of them at the same time? You're doing something to trigger their spam filters. 7 of the same posts, at the same time, all from unverified accounts is rather obvious that it is spam from the same person.

    Very likely the quality of your proxies, from what the symptoms of your patients: sudden death. :D

    Also, it's safe to let them rest for a coupla days before blasting links (the same links) full speed. Maybe use a few automated MOTD without urls, that's what I do and it generally works fine. ;) Ideally, keep a stash of accounts created 2 days before and use them. Again, that's what I do and the results are OK.

    Brand new account, Only 1 tweet, and its a link?

    Then theres 7 other accounts exactly the same advertising the same link?

    Honestly, what would you think?

    To be on the safe side, I wouldn't jump straight in a tweet a link after I just created an account, even with the private proxies.

    I would tweet an innocent tweet like "Finally on Twitter", follow a few celebrities, make a list of the celebrities and retweet something. Then I would wait a day and then start tweeting.

    You've got to give Twitter a little foreplay :D

    maybe some tweets were done from the same ip address and this have cause to bann your twitter account. I have also some accounts over there but so far have good experience.

    Bad proxies certainly don't help and I am starting to think that if this kind of activity is carried out by many others using the same proxy address, then Twitter simply stores that as a bad IP and automatically removes anyone who creates an account on that IP address.

    I realise the OP didn't use the same IP on all accounts, but what happens if the proxy used is a well known proxy and regularly used to create tens or hundreds of twitter accounts? If that's happened already, then your accounts were doomed before you even began :/

    Personally, I'd spend the extra money and buy private proxies and limit each IP to a max of 5 accounts and then follow the advice found here for tweeting, links and how long to wait before blasting it.

    Using RSS feeds from things like Twitter feed and locating high quality blogs for the RSS links from BBC, Sky, CNN etc and using hash tags can really help make the account look worthwhile and more like a service rather than a bot.
