    Can someone please help me with this question?

    I have a new twitter account and den1456 was awesome enough to load me up with some followers so now I have about 510 followers and I also use tweetadder as well. My question is can I still only send out small amounts of follows at a time or can I send out hundreds right away to catch up with the amount of followers I have?

    I ask because I know Twitter requires a certain followed/follower ratio.

    Thanks

    I would follow around 100 a day to start off. Twitter has been very strict lately. Gradually add more followers each week and once you get a warning you know how much your limit is.

    I am at 41 right now and slowly creeping up by one every 3 to 7 minutes. I set my cap at 75 wanting to be safe...

    How new is new? I wouldnt go any higher than 150 at the very most if its a brand new account, mass following from the off will just set alarm bells off and you'll get picked off pretty quickly. Goes without saying to tweet natural looking tweets as well, dont just follow accounts without saying anything! Slow and steady wins the race early on with Twitter, try to sprint and they'll cut your legs off :p

    Yea it's under a week old. I am doing all the tweeting as of now. I'll eventually put that on mostly auto pilot. Also I am making a point to reply to people as well. The only thing I am doing on AP right now is the following/unfollowing.
