Twitter Suspended: Followed 50, No Bot

    I have seen a lot of people looking into TweetDemon, being its the only bot currently working(to my knowledge) as the reason for the suspensions.
    I do not own TweetDemon and just received a suspension for adding about 50 people within 5m.

    The users were added from a niche. All users added had either Re-tweeted or Favorited a certain User which my blog had just did a review on. We posted links to the blog on Twitter.

    Being that I never had TA3 and have not tried out TD, this is the method I used to add users. I did not add them as fast in the past.

    My account is about 6mo old with 2500 followers / 750 Following. Was this just me being lackadaisical with the add speed or has Twitter REALLY beefed up spam prevention? Probably a mixture of both, but it is still annoying that the users added were all active users, within my exact target of my niche, and all active within the last 5m(re-tweet/fav on 5m old tweet).

    Twitter says this about following:
    Every Twitter account is technically unable to follow more than 1,000 users per day, in addition to the account-based limits above. Please note that this is just a technical limit to prevent egregious abuse from spam accounts.


    What is aggressive following?
    Aggressive following is defined as indiscriminately following hundreds of accounts just to garner attention. However, following a few users if their accounts seem interesting is normal and is not considered aggressive.

    Followed 1/20th and couldn't have been more dead on with my target. :confused:

    5 minutes looks like too fast for 50 ppl... And you did not get any warnings from Twitter that you can't do it anymore?

    No problem for me, for 50 ppl? I usually do that less than 1 minute.

    Yupp, I submitted my counter to their suspension and it took them less than 12 hours to give me my account back. Will slow it down.

    I'm running 113 aged accounts (building more), following over 150 people per day and have only been suspended on 2 accounts in 4 days.

    Timing is everything.

    Twitter is going crazy these days, so be careful about what you do. As the previous poster said, timing is everything. Don't be greedy and back the follows with good content. I wish you best of luck :)

    I'm seeing accounts follow without being suspended and they haven't made their first tweet yet! Others are being suspended doing the same amount of following, same settings and they have tweets without links.

    Whether an account has tweeted doesn't seem to make any difference.

    It might not, but it should help you to gain natural followers, so that you don't always have to keep pushing your followers up. That's the way social media works. I hope you understand what I am trying to point out here.

    Same here, following 300 to 970 without suspension. The number varies on the amount of followers I have.

    On a side note, after the new API update I got one suspension for FAVing 1000 tweets. Haven't been suspended since, so it seems like banning are random.
