Hey fellow Twitter-ers..., Take a look at the SPAM section of Twitter's TOS (found here: https://support.twitter.com/articles/18311), they basically list every strategy you can think of for raising follower count as "spam" which can result in an account ban. I made my first twitter account today and I'm playing around with it, but I am worried about getting banned on these following grounds. if you have followed and/or unfollowed large amounts of accounts in a short time period, particularly by automated means (aggressive following or follower churn); if you repeatedly follow and unfollow people, whether to build followers or to garner more attention for your profile; if you post misleading links (e.g. affiliate links, links to malware/clickjacking pages, etc.); if you are randomly or aggressively following, liking, or Retweeting Tweets; I'm assuming the tactics mentioned above are commonly used. I didn't have to come to BHW to realize that people are doing these things all the time. My question to you guys is have you guys done any of these things that constitute "spam" under twitters TOS? Have you faced penalties or bans? I am particularly concerned with the bullet's I've listed in RED. What procedures should I take to reduce the risk of a ban?
