    Hey guys,

    because of many debates here on BHW, how much and how often you may follow on twitter per day and because of many "experts" talking untruth here, I wanted to put it to the proof and check it out. I started this test last week, so far it is going quite well.

    Target:
    to get as many real followers as possible without getting banned and to find out what minimal delay is allowed for following 1000 people with one account per day.

    I've taken 25 new and 25 old Twitter accounts (5 - 6 months old) These accounts I have used for selling fake followers on fiverr.. and yes, for many sceptics here, they are still alive although they've followed lots of people :)
    The accounts were created with good private proxies and were well profiled (bios, real pics, backgrounds etc.)

    I have done so far:
    - taken 50 pics of nice lovely girls, beautiful headers and backgrounds and modified profiles.
    - added about 10k - 30k fake followers to each of my 50 test accounts
    - scraped 200k various twitter profiles with help of different keywords
    - followed with all already 100k of them, 20k followed me already
    - followed aggresiv - 1k a day per account (delay 6 - 10 sec)
    - posted some tweets (quotes) and retweets from funny guys (@itswillyferrell, @fillwerrell, @menshumor, @shitgirlssay etc.) NO LINKS!

    My plan is:
    - following: aggresiv like before; after first "ban hammer" add new accounts and increase delay between followings
    - 20 accounts will follow 20k people per day, that is to say that every account will follow 1000 people a day ( twitter technical 1k follow limit)
    - next day another 20 accounts will be on the row and follow another 20k profiles
    - all 50 accounts will tweet about 10 - 15 quotes and retweets per day, no links

    Software: TweetDemon
    Proxies: NO, I have dynamic IP and can change it everytime when I restart my router. I'm using 10 accounts per IP without problems.

    My Stats 6.03.13

    Following: 114434
    Followers: 664274
    Accounts: 50


    Will try to update this thread and my stats every day.
    You are welcome to discuss all your Twitter problems, I have a lot of experience since I'm followers seller for about 1 year and I am good familiar in this area.
    Hope this thread will help someone to resolve a doubt.
    Cheers :p

    Does the Account age matter much? i mean if you have an old account and you do go aggressive with it, twitt3r will be lenient ? don't think so...

    That is strange - 1000 a day ... We have 24 accounts, min age 7 month, never followed more then 200 a day but last Nov. few accounts got suspended. Now following less then 100 a day. Couple of weeks ago another account got suspended with following less then 100 a day with good ratio (3000 followers to 1500 following). What could be the reason? Also I've noticed if you'll use recently unsuspended account it gets suspended again in a few days... Any ideas on that? Twitter never explains the reasons. Could be just by mistake?

    Other details - we are posting links 75%( non- spam, affiliate) and no links tweets 25%. Other accounts with the same settings never got suspended. Many tweets links and no links favorited and retreated by followers. We are using Tweet adder. Any advise will be appreciated

    I can follow just over 2,000 with my account daily.

    It's my personal account that I've had for 3 years or so - no spammy links, nothing.

    However this thread will be interesting - how many are you following per account?
    Also are you mass unfollowing? or is it just pure mass following.

    I believe the thing that gets people caught out is mass unfollowing on the same day/next day
    looks highly unnatural and screams out "hey look at me I'm a marketer" =BANN HAMMER

    Any who .. *subscribed*

    Unfollowing may be the problem + posting links. Check this post from Zakhar

    You haven't hit any barrier yet? i mean the daily following limit whatever it is...this might prove you can in theory follow a 1000 accs a day, just send in more fakes and follow real accs again

    To keep the ratio I will add another fake followers ;)
    When it's nearer the time, I will take 25 test accounts and try to unfollow to keep the ratio. Another 25 accounts will get fake followers, then we can compare and find out if unfollowing bring the ban hammer.

    Why do you think one account got suspended if you are doing the same thing on all 25?

    I can manage all accounts in TweetDemon and can see which one got suspended.

    Interesting to see that accounts don't seem to be getting suspended for following 1k per day as long as you don't unfollow.

    For those that can't afford to keep buying followers to keep their ratio in check, I wrote a guide a while back that will allow you to also unfollow accounts without getting suspended - though you are not able to follow in the same sort of volume initially.

    I think its the begining..they've found out one acc is bad..my guess is other new accs will follow sooner or later...but lets wait and see...Its like the OP is running this for all of us here..nice job man..we might figure out a thing or 2 here!
