    What is the daily (Or hourly) follow limit for a 5+ month old Twitter account? Unfollow limit?

    I'm looking to grow my Twitter account via the follow method, but I don't want my account suspended you know?

    Thanks

    Using a bot in my experience 200 per day ( maximum), for this reason I use multiple fake accounts

    If the account has more than 10,000 followers, it's not worth risking. 50 follows per day would be okay, no more. Just to stay on the safe side. :)

    It increases in percentage depending on the number of followers you have.

    For example, I have 5.5k followers, and I can safely unfollow 700 - 750 people per day. You will get warnings if there is a problem though, your account won't be lost completely the first time you unfollow too many people.

    Be careful, it´s not the same following 200 having 200 following 350 followers than 10 following, 400 followers.

    I quite often follow/unfollow 700-900/day with no problem. It is an account from 2010 with 13000 followers though.

    This.

    If you have 10,000 followers then you can probably only unfollow a thousand or so a day, however with over 100,000 followers you can safely unfollow 15k+ a day

    You could probably manage 600 follows/unfollows just fine with that amount.

    For managing multiple accounts (real + some fake) I use hootsuite, for the rest of my fake accounts I bought on this forum a bot for following-scraping; in the download section there is a bot for free

    For new accounts 50 to 100 followers per day is OK, if you already have 100ks of followers then unlimited followers per month without any problem.

    It seems like the maximum you can ever follow in one day is 1,000 due to twitter limitations. I have over 100k and can still only follow that many.. Or will it increase say when I get to 200k? Unfollowers I can do as many as I like.. I unfollowed 10k recently in 24 hours with no issues.

    With just under 5k followers I definitely wouldn't risk any more than 5-600 as stated above.
