    Hi,

    Lately I have been experiencing a great deal of suspensions from Twitter, so I'm trying to see just what is causing the high rate of bans. I was literally getting banned by the second tweet, so nothing was sticking and it has been frustrating me to no end.

    Since my suspensions, I have decided to take things slowly and I have created 23 email verified accounts, with new pics, bio, no website link, and have been posting generic tweets for the last day. Today is day two of this experiment, and I have had 5 accounts banned so far for no reason whatsoever...(no affiliate links, just generic tweets) so Im now left with 18 accounts. The 5 that got banned were all posting using tweetattacks and on the same ip, so I figure when they ban one account, they may tend to ban all of them on the same ip.

    My question to the people who have a lot of experience with Twitter is this: How long do you age your accounts before you start posting links in with your tweets? The only thing I have been doing differently with my experiment is not posting my links, so I figure this is what may be getting me banned? I usually use the same link for every 5 accounts and change the links daily, and all tweets have been different, no duplicates.

    In comparison, I have an account which I had sitting around for two months, and for the last three months its been spamming celebrity gossip via twitterfeed with no bans, and no human interaction. The links are all different for each tweet though...so wondering if the link repeating is a problem here? Is there a way to keep changing the link using tweetattacks, or do you guys just change them out daily like I do?

    What Ive noticed? The aged account I have can bot and spam with no suspension...so wondering if its because its aged, or because each link in every tweet is different...

    So to summarize this long text and get your feedback:
    accounts: how long do you age them for?
    links: how often do you change them up?

    Would be grateful for any tips to avoid further suspensions.

    And well, the picture must be really unique. And about link in tweets do that : use bit ly and at the end of URL add random numbers ( ?36779).
    And if you Want safe any account, don t send more than 200 tweets per days ( limit is 250 with twitter api).

    Hi headhunterzz :)

    Thanks for your reply. Im going to try using the random numbers with bit ly (which im already using) and age the accounts for two weeks as you advise. On average, how long do your accounts last for?

    I m not using any software for first. I ve create my own bot using api.
    Well on average, my accounts with 15 days old are sending 200 tweets per days, and send one tweet each 10 sc. never been banned and i m not using proxy.
    But as i said that s my own bot in php , mysql and cron job.
    Well if you Want spam on twitter using a soft, i will say take a look on tweet attack, lots of people are using it to spam. And usually they do spam to death.

    Yeah im using tweetattacks with 5 accounts per proxy. Im assuming Ive been getting banned because I havent aged the accounts long enough. Im going to wait 2 weeks as you suggested and see if that makes any difference. How many accounts do you have on one IP?

    I m not using proxy. As i said this is my own bot, actually i m using it on local using wamp, so all my accounts work on my ip computer.
    But 5 accounts per proxy, it s good with tweet attacks. TA use http that s why you must use proxy.
    It s différent if you use api..
