    Up until this week I've been taking advantage of Andriod's following glitch with Twitter. Recently this week Twitter put a cap on mass following, if anyone know's a way you can still mass following please let me know! thanks!

    Get 1,000-10,000 worker accounts that will retweet popular tweets from your main accounts.

    Follow XX per day on your worker accounts and drive traffic to your MAIN accounts.

    This way your main accounts will never be in jeapordy.

    The trick is managing those worker accounts -- I've NEVER heard anyone describe a legitimate system for working with 10,000 accounts and here's why:

    for your account to work they need to retweet/follow, etc. to do this you have to log into twitter with them. Now you have an IP address problem. Most people say you can effectively and safely control 5 accounts from one IP but - for the sake of our thought experiment - lets say we're able to use 50 accounts per IP.

    For these 10,000 accounts I would need 200 IPs (we have to assume private proxies, not public as I need to be the only one using twitter with them). 200 private proxies is going to run you not less than $200/month.

    Not a very cost effect twitter management strategy. Please if I am wrong or someone knows an obvious way around the math I'm doing, I'd love to know it.

    On top of that these won't all be targeted customers so if you are trying to sell something or talk about a certain niche, you won't get great engagement. So that money spent won't make sense, the ROI just won't make sense unless you are just looking for NUMBERS.

    Could you shed a little bit of light on a bot? I've always been a little skeptical about those.

    Why couldn't they be targeted? You could set up a bot search/follow so that you wound up with targeted followers. However, getting click happy Twitter folks to actually buy something is a bit difficult I hear. Better use is to drive traffic to a main site.

    That's not actually going to increase your follow limit...
    I know some people pull off the mass 10000 accounts funneling to 10 or so. How they do it? I'm not sure, they could be managed, but the main problem is cost effectiveness.

    That type of strategy works better if you can get 50 higher quality accounts going, and then form the "network".

    This perhaps may be an irrelevant question but how many followers should you add in a day to stay safe

    Depends of the account: age, follow ratios, number of tweets.. There is not a general rule

    So the question is, can you make more than $200 in a month? If yes, you're onto a winner.

    If you cannot afford the $200 a month, start small and scale up

    With the new limit it looks like the maximum you can follow a day is 2000.

    I tried your theory, but after I followed 800 in android it didn't increase anymore, then tried in desktop and it told me I reached the limit, something is off

    I'm not sure then. I can do 2000 but it might be different for each account.
