    Hi guys,

    I don't know much about iMacros (still learning) but I pieced this together for a twitter account I'm running. It's pretty important that it doesn't get suspended as it's the main account for a legitimate account I run. The account has 31k tweets, 9,500 followers and has been around for two years. I used tweet adder on it for almost two years at very safe levels and only got suspended early on (this hasn't happen in two years).

    Here's the script:

    Code:
    VERSION BUILD=7601105 RECORDER=FXTAB SET !TIMEOUT_PAGE 1
    SET !LOOP 1
    SET !ERRORIGNORE YES
    SET !VAR1 {{!LOOP}}
    SET !VAR2 EVAL("var randomNumber=Math.floor(Math.random()*17 + 1); randomNumber;")
    TAG POS={{!VAR1}} TYPE=B ATTR=TXT:Favorite
    WAIT SECONDS={{!VAR2}}
    URL GOTO=javascript:window.scrollBy(0,350)
    
    It seems to be working... I just don't want to get suspended for it! Feel free to use it if you find it useful. It's fairly slow (me being cautious) but you could easily cut down VAR2 and make it as fast as you wanted!

    Anyways if anyone felt like commenting, I'd love to hear from you! I'm a newb at this sort of thing :)

    Thanks!

    set a higher number of waiting seconds in order to be safe
    Code:
    SET !VAR2 EVAL("var randomNumber=Math.floor(Math.random()*17 + 1); randomNumber;")

    What SPP said and don't do the max 1k daily... maybe do about 500 favs for a 24 hour period

    Cool! I've set it to 40... does that seem ok? And I'll stick to around 1/2 the max (which is 500, like you say?).

    Thanks again guys!

    Aside from IM, I manage bands. I've been using a Twitter favorite bot for months now with all of my bands. There is absolutely nothing in the Twitter TOS about favorite limits (even though it exists at 1000). They frequently suspend my accounts for "misusing/abusing the mention feature" but then I respond angrily, informing them that I never did such a thing. They always apologize and reinstate my account. After a few times, they "fix" the problem, and you never get suspended again.

    Thanks for the heads up man! The account is actually for a band as well! If you don't mind I'd like to pick your brain sometime... We have a fairly strong online presence but it could be much stronger if we had a much better social media presence.
