    I had multiple accounts with 8,000 followers for 6 months now. Did the same thing every day to add/unfollow users. Without changing any of my method, all my accounts are banned.

    Just a heads up, I think they are making big changes to track tweet attacks lately.

    I've heard about this recently as well, I'm curious if others are seeing the same thing?

    What are some good tips/tricks for Twitter?

    RightInTwo - Are you using proxies?

    I'm pretty sure they have updated algorithms, just from my experiences. But it's business as usual - just tame it a bit, I think they cracking down on high volume tweeting, DMs etc, so just keep it looking real-ish...

    I have 2 computers running TA, This is how I do it, 1 computer controls all my clean accounts attached to nice spamfree websites, real businesses, The other computer is setup for blasting and promoting random shit. I use proxyes on this one, the other one I DONT, lol I dont mix the 2 and ive been dominating twitter for over a year, no fluctuations.

    The more you spam greater the risk, try to change your methods. GL :)

    I just started using twitter the last week and i just had two of my accounts suspended...

    No big deal, just need to adjust the system and be more careful.

    I was doing pretty much well with FB and after hearing of Tweetattacks, I was waiting to check it out. Guess it's just not my day.

    Worked real well for awhile, now it generates less accounts which makes you spend more time than previously.

    I had my account suspended for the first time in 2 years a week ago. Twitter's reason: they dont like affiliate links in the tweets. Luckily, I appealed and my account was reinstated. Beware of using affiliate links in your tweets!

    Looks like Twitter is cracking down on IP's. I just got an answer back on a support ticket about my private proxies not working on Twitter.

    Yourprivateproxies says that all of their proxies are blocked by Twitter right now.
