Continuously getting Account Locked on Conservative Settings

Post by bmanfacts » Sat Apr 13, 2019 5:25 pm

So this is my second round of getting locked on my twitter accounts.

After some testing around I discovered that both follow functions (Follow-Unfollow) are leading to the locks.

Interestingly though, whenever I log in to Twitterdub, I receive an email about a suspicious login attempt on my account.

Having done this twice, I've now noticed this was a regular occurrence.

Now as for my settings...

I share a follow list of 10 accounts scraping 35 users from each account between three accounts, unique items, and set to follow-Unfollow max 350 (since Twitter updated...downgraded... their limits from 1000 to 400) spaced out with delays of 1-2 mins.

Much of the above is qualitative information. But I wish to know if there's a way around the suspicious login. I'm leaving device iD's normal but it's seen via twitter as a suspicious login.

And also is there really a safer way to use the follow functions?

What exactly does it say.

and if you reduce those down furth to 100 daily, do you still suffer the same issue?

The subject, "New login" Text "unusual login attempt" followed by the standard "if this was you no need to take action"

Reducing the activities lower still surfaces the same issues. As of now I can't even login to one of my accounts from twitterdub. Continuous verifications even after resting it for 48hrs from the software. Still can login from my official app.
The other two now keep getting locked out from just tweets, retweets, & likes (amount to around 100 actions a day)

nothing else? No useragent ? OS? IP?

Nothing to explain why they think it is suspicious?
