    I decided to focus on one good twitter account manually. Things are starting to gain momentum but I keep getting locked out every day or two which completely messes up my tweet scheduler.

    I've got about 3.3k followers -- only 120 are actually real

    I follow roughly 100-150 per day and get about 30 follow backs on average from that (only have 25 total tweets so I expect this ratio to increase when tweets + followers do)

    I figured 150 follows per day was peanuts so I am unsure why I am getting locked out so much?


    1) I do little to no RT or Faving -- Should I be doing this frequently?

    2) Since I'm manually following I can't really control follow delay/velocity. I follow about 20-30 people in 30 seconds and then wait 20 minutes and follow another 20-30 people in 30 seconds. Then wait another 20 minutes, etc. -- Should I get a follow bot with a 300 sec delay?

    3) Should I buy another 3k followers to increase my leeway?

    Thanks

    how can you follow 20-30 people in 30 seconds??? Don't you check profiles of each one before you follow them?

    He probably just went to a big account's in his niche followers and started following them

    I have done follow backs all year, where in one month i'd follow 30,000 people unfollow about 20k that didn't follow back.. I've slowed down lately.. Tonight I followed maybe 500 people got locked out.. No big deal, it happens periodically.. I reset my password like normal.. I haven't followed anymore people since, and have hardly tweeted tonight... My account has been locked 9 or 10 times in the last like 6 hours.. I'm really confused.. I don't think it even has to do with the following, because I did it earlier, because it's never been much of an issue, i have a 1 in 3 follow back rate, and I have a ton of legit fans who tweet at me all day long. So i'm really confused by the lock outs tonight.

    Yea this is correct.

    This is all manual yes? If so it sounds like it might be follow velocity.

    Its just not worth it for me atm to buy software for one twitter account.

    The locks out wouldnt be so bad if they didnt stop apps form scheduling tweets and fucking up the cycle.

    Im getting about 1/3 follow backs to it seems. But only following like 100 per day which is crap. 33 follows per day.
