    I have an aged account about 2 1/2 years old, following 500 people with 25,000 followers. About 24,000 of them are fake, can i still follow 1,000 people a day or has the API changed?

    The technical follow limit is 1,000 per day. So according to this rule you can follow more users, but the limit of following, no of users is also depend on the ratio of followers to following (the ratio is not published). Also the API hasn't lifted yet by twitter.

    Hi :)
    You can follow up to 2000 people on twitter without any problems,but once you follow 2001 or more you will face following limits.The limits are based on the ratio of the number of people you follow to the number of people that follow you.There is no set ratio to guide you so the best course of action once you follow 2000 people is to make sure you are building the number of people that follow you as well

    Technical daily follow limit for twitter is 1,000. You are following 500 users and you have 25,000 followers. Yes, you can follow more since your follower is more than your following.

    You can follow up to 1000 users per day, but, before you keep clicking on the Follow button...please read first the updated TOS
