    What's up. I'm new here but love all the kind feedback and wisdom.

    I've got friends in quite a few decks and suites. They're getting worried Twitter is about to hammer down on these and go further and make it almost impossible to even own dozens of accounts to retweet a main off of. They fear Twitter is trying to go overboard to rid themselves of all spam tactics. Several friends had their decks quit working at the same time last week. One guy is in twelve and all twelve went down.

    I disagree for two reasons:

    1. If a person is smart and rretweets with proxies and doesn't overdo it, how can they tell?

    2. The DM daily limit was upped from 250 to 1000. This makes no sense if Twitter is making a hard push to eradicate any sniff of spam tactics. They have to realize people abuse the auto DM system even more now.

    Any thoughts here?

    never was able to get into twitter decks, they usually require 100k+ followers

    weren't they always trying to get rid of spam ? Like all the other social medias ? Nothing new, just something else that needs a workaround if they come up with more limits. Spam will always be there ;)

    Twitter has weakness that they need to live with, there whole structure is against them. They will never eradicate spam, we will always be one step ahead.

    Chiming in - I've had a few friend's decks go down, led to suspensions, etc.

    Not sure what's going on, my best guess would be them not liking accounts run from multiple IPs in on the same deck.
