    Hi, a while back I decided to create twitter account generator / following script. At first, I made a 1000 accounts out of my own IP. Needless to say, they all got suspended. I tried to get around it and found out that you can create a maximum of 5 twitter accounts per IP which meant I had to rent private proxy servers. Now, private proxy servers cost at least 1$ each

    If I was to make a 10000 twitter accounts, I'd need 200 proxy servers which is a total sum of 200$

    Yet, I still see people selling fake twitter accounts for almost 80$

    How is that possible? How are they selling for much less than they're spending?

    Using the same proxies for different services cuts down the costs. Also, the IPs in some countries are dirt cheap.

    Because they're dirt cheap to create and Twitter's anti-spam efforts are basically worthless.
