    Ok for some reason my limit went down about -200
    and the followers i noticed have been set on a delay.

    Have any of you noticed these changes?
    or is it just me .....

    I had an older account with about 2k followers and I followed 100 per day to build it up. Never unfollowed anyone on that account. Now on newer accounts I don't follow more than 50 per day.

    I've never tried to follow that many per day, especially with automated software.

    What is the message you're getting when this happens?

    Then it could just be a glitch.

    They've had a few of those recently

    So are you saying you're follow limit is now 200 or 200 less than the amount you followed before?

    Also, are you doing this manually or with an app like TweetAttacks...because that may determine if they are actually targetting you specifically or now.

    Well, I believe I can follow up to 1000 a day and it really sucks...

    By the way, I am following 2000 people and only 150 are following me back? Is it normal?

    twitter is making crazy changes right now. Lets wait for more of their stupid updates. They are just envy because more affiliate bots are making money and they are not.
