    Where is that topic? I have been working on building a following and ran into this hard limit. I'd like to hear what the ratios are now.
    This worries me about twitter. I feel like it's the death knell.

    What was it man? Are you promoting your twitter page here or is it another kind of advertisement? I am confused regarding your thread. Would you like to explain in detail?

    It wasn't an advertisement. I'm not promoting anything. It's was a breaking news regarding the Twitter limits / algorithm and it's highly relevant for those doing marketing on Twitter.

    That's a really good news for people who have a lot of aged accounts and are planning to use the follow/unfollow method to gain more followers.

    if you want to follow 5000 + x you need ~4575 + y followers

    y = 90% from x
