    Got most of my twitter accounts banned while using the unfollow function of Followliker just a minute ago, good thing i stopped it already and some of my accounts got saved. If i were you, better stop using the bot for now and wait for an update or anything.

    been running over 50 accounts for over 2 months with no issues (today as well)

    the problem is probably on your side (maybe you unfollowed to many people or used bad proxies)

    you can't blame the software unless you have some kind of PROOF it's because of FL...

    Yes you are right. I should not blame FL for that. I think twitter is updating their algorithm as wizard04 posted in a different thread.
    Anyway i am unfollowing around 450 to 500 a day (the recommend limit by FL) but still a lot of my accounts got suspended. I think ill just wait for an update with some people here before using any bots again.

    Does anyone of you experience the same issue? Lets discuss them here.

    There's no way of getting banned without it being your wrong doing on Twitter.. or any social media platform for that matter.

    It's not as much a Botting or limits issue as it is a human behavior issue IMO. A human is not going to Unfollow 450-500 people slowly throughout a 12-24 hour period. A Human unfollow or follow pattern is more as so, The Human user logs in and unfollows 250+ people rapidly at a time, take a break for a few hours, then bulk unfollows 250+ users again. With FL or any Twitter Bot for that matter you can do this, by simply setting short 2-5 second delays, then letting your accounts fly. Hitting your 250+ unfollows, then resting.

    Maybe your issue is that you're not using proxies?

    I am definitely going to try this out. Thanks for your input.

    I am using private proxies.

    not sure mate, the safe limits depend on the account age, if you have relatively new accs, even that 500 unfollows per day seem too many to me
    i just got back an account which is 6 years old and has 144k followers, i started to tidy it up a bit and unfollowing ~3k non-followers per day with manageflitter since a few days now without any problems, it's done in a matter of minutes

    I stopped it 2 weeks ago, now running with low settings. No issues at all.
    Keep us updated!

    I believe the glitch is not to be blamed on FL's side. There might be something wrong with the way you used it. Some of my colleagues have been using it and they've encountered no problem, so far.

    FL is configured by users, and having aggressive settings with newer accounts is often resulting in account bans. It's always good to keep apprised of the recommended settings and not to engage in behaviors that twitter perceives as over-aggressive.
