    Hi Blackhat gurus,

    With lots of automation tools emerging everyday without proper usage, it will only hurts many marketing life than benefits. One of such tools is twitter automation tool. Twitter is a goldmine to only those who know about it. I discovered one can make 5 figures monthly from twitter if well use. Then i have to ask, how many people can i follow a day to avoid twitter knocking their hammer on my big head. It will be useless for me to be opening a new twitter account everyday.

    I believe there are gurus who are using tools like tweet attack and tweet adder to automate their twitter marketing. Please what is the best practice to ensure that we blackhatters are a little safe with twitter.

    Well, I would like to know this too because I was told following 50 people a day at the beggining and after a week following 200 per day was safe, and then unfollow those who were not following me (100 per day), BUUUUUUT this got me 6 accounts banned at the same time, and I wasn't spamming or anything like that, I wasn't even tweetting offers.. :(

    I think you are using a lot of twitter accounts from same ip, thats why you get banned. 200 following is nothing twitter. People follow 1000 per day with out banned.

    ~700-900 a day, and on the next unfollow ~700-900.

    Only had an issue with a fake girls account. but hell her picture had the legs spread open. it was shamefully pornographic. She got kicked, no wonder.

    All other girls I have are hot and do fine.

    I would say 500 to be safe, but as you have read some people get away with 1K, change the IP every now and than just to be safe.

    I've had a couple of account get banned. I was using tweetattacks free version, was in a hurry and left the timing set to 1-2 seconds. I blasted about 500 or so follows and got banned. I think a lot of it has to do with how fast you follow.

    I'm gonna buy the full version of tweetattacks which can limit the number of follows I think. It will be worth it just to not have to rebuild my followers for my autoblogs.

    I advice you to follow not round number like 100 or 200. Use different like 134 or 267. This will increase you chans not to be banned.

    you follow them to make them see your tweets you unfollow some because its a waste of time following someone if they're not following you back ..also twitter has limits of 2k following ,another reason why you should unfollow
