    Ok guys this is my first post on this site after stumbling across it a few months ago.

    So here it is guy's i started marketing on twitter a few weeks ago on twitter using the a bit of software i picked up.

    the last two weeks have been pretty good (£257's good) but iv'e hit a wall . the twitter wall.(my site was mentioned on one of the post's which was a bit nice)

    i started up my software created a few accounts under different ip's started trying to market on the twitter timeline with different messages and links, but none not one tweet hit the public timeline meaning 0 traffic .

    i have been really stumped on what to do? how is this not working for me guy's

    are any fellow black hatters marketing successfully on the twitter timeline if so

    Are these new accounts? New accounts being made now dont get put into the "Firehose" of updates. As in trends etc. I think its only something like a delay of a week then your all good to go.

    Big favor guys could one of you's lead me a week old account to check this out, or could you's check it out to see if it is true new account vs old account to see if it gets into the public time line:sombrero:

    I know it is true. Someone else was saying it. I think it might have been wakka. And he is like king of spamming trends :p. Maybe even a thread about it somewhere.

    I wouldnt be surprised if they were going haywire against IP's. But it wouldnt be against a sole person. Ive said this thousands of times before when developing my application (Check sig), that a centralized solution (Aka website based), can only end badly. It is so easy for twitter to pick up on the websites IP that is sending a gazillion requests a second and block them. Not to mention websites generally have to rely on a API key.

    Twitter has it written in their documentation aswell that Ip's can and will be blacklisted.
