    Been using an iMacros script for a few days on multiple accounts but earlier today I got a little gready and went from 15 favorites every 90 seconds to about 30 and got suspended.

    Does anyone know the exact triggers that ban you for favorites? I know you cant favorite more than 1k in 24 hours but what are the other ones?

    Sidenote: Decided to test on another account. Been going through 12-25 favorites per 90 seconds and havnt gotten suspended. Did I just get unlucky or what? Its happened to me on 2 accounts so far.

    Edit: Just ran the cycle a few times and set the favorites to 20 per 90 second delay and just got suspended. I'm confused! Maybe 90 seconds is not enough time?

    I know that if your account is relative new, you'll get suspended for favoriting. Is your account about 2-3 weeks old on the suspended ones?

    One of the accounts was a few months old with low activity and just started to get really active the last few days. I had bought 5000 followers for it but only 1000 were delivered during the time of suspension. I don't think that's it however since it happened mid-favorite and the other 2 accounts that got suspended didnt have any fake followers.

    I do 15 and I'm fine so far.

    I also notice that when you said you do 12-25, you got suspended. Perhaps going above 20+ with 90 seconds could be the issue. Or even yet, maybe 90 seconds isn't long enough for FAVing 20+ tweets.

    I guess you could try testing out 25 tweets while leaving it for 150 seconds or so.

    Yesterday I got banned the second for speeding up my favorites. I've had this account for years and had nearly 15k followers. Didn't have any problems until yesterday when I favorited a ton of tweets quickly, got suspended immediately after.

    Yeah I read up a little online and their usually pretty leaniant about small first time violations (if yours is the first time atleast). Just tell them you looked over and reminded yourself about the TOS after being suspended and if they would kindly remind you of the broken rule, you promise not to break it.

    Also don't forget you have to reply to the actual email they send you to "reopen" your ticket(which is bs because why would they close it without review)

    Be careful with that script.

    I'm still not sure how it works, but all of the accounts Ive used this on eventually get suspended. Ive only had one day where I got to 1000 favorites for the day and couldnt use anymore. Run it like 5 times then go off an do something else for 5 or so minutes and repeat

    Any estimate on how long it takes to receive a response from twitter after you open a ticket?

    About 7-10 days from what I gathered but you have to reply the correct way to the email they sent you

    within 24hrs but sometimes they just never reply, personally i wouldn't bother doing favourites, its the most pointless feature on twitter
