    There's no unfollow limit at all but there is one for following. As for the others you should be good as long as it's not too spammy.

    current follow/unfollow - depends on your account followers ratio
    current favorites daily limits - around 1000
    current retweets - 1000 (including your regular tweets)

    Twitter says they don't give hard limits on purpose, but general idea is:

    Follow/unfollow 1k/day until following 2k, then limited by Following/follower ratio of 1.1

    DM's at 250

    However, It'd be a mistake to jump right up to any of those numbers consistently right off the bat with brand new acct. I personally just stay away from DMs as much as possible after reading up on others' issues.

    Once acct has aged, and your following is high, you can push past those follow/unfollow numbers.

    For new accts, it's useful to get some fake followers first. Start following a few hundred daily and work up.


    I've had issues very recently retweeting over 650 or so on brand new accts only. Older accts no problem to 1k. Haven't seen any chatter on that, tho.

    The limits are just part of the equation...

    You can max out your follows (1000 technical, but per account max applies). There is no technical unfollow max.

    That said, a one off max follow and unfollow in one day is fine. But don't do it too frequently. Ideally, you want to follow gradually, then unfollow once or twice a week.

    It's not a requirement on Twitter to set a location, but when it's set, you can use a bio/location scrapert with keywords to target particular locations. The feature is often part of paid Twitter bots.
