    What Methods Do You Adopt To Follow 600-900 People On Twitter? I've Tried Doing This Many Times With Dummy Accounts...Kept My Tweets To About 120....Followed 700 People And 20 Mins Later got Banned....So Anyone Got Some Tricks To Not Getting Banned While Following A Large Number Of People (600+) Or Just Stay With The 500 Below Mark?

    Follow about 150-200 per day, and you also need people to follow you back, so look for "auto follow back" or follow celebrities, and people will start following you back, since they see you are friends with the celebrity.

    You want about 1 follower per 10 follows.

    LOL You followed way to many people Here do this.

    Target people with profile pics.

    Follow a max of 325 people a day.

    last but not least if you are going to unfollow wait 3 days and then do it and unfollow only 200-300 people a day.

    Put a girls profile pic as well (Makes it a lot easier and fill in the BIO)

    Good luck.

    Do it without following anybody...

    1. Find a twitter train site owner that stored the API logins of all that joined (many did).
    2. Give them your twitter username.
    3. They rotate through each twitter train account with the API having each auto-follow you.
    4. Ta-da! 500 follows in the blink of an eye!

    Seriously, it works - there are a few services here that do it.

    For my first account, I used trains. I got thousands of followers and after a few days of using the trains, people would just start following me on their own [I guess liking the fact that I had a ton of followers]. It became automated in no time. If you're trying to target a specific audience though, I wouldn't recommend using any trains at all.

    Get tweetattacks and follow no more than 150 people a day.

    It's the same as a MySpace train, only with Twitter. You go to a Twitter train site and join. Your profile gets listed in the train. You follow everyone on the train and in return, they follow you.

    This is not what I was referring to. Any site that is using the old API that doesn't require oAuth took both username and passwords to post things to Twitter. Many of those sites stored this information for the train use.

    Now, the owners of those sites are not requiring you to join the trains. Instead, you pay a fee and give them your twitter username and they will make the old users of the train automatically follow you without you having to follow anyone. Those users think they are still getting followers from the trains when in reality it's a whole other service adding you. This will end in June so better act fast.
