Twitter banning me real quick

Post by Bartekef » Sun Jul 08, 2018 8:05 am

Hey, I got a question for ya..
I used to follow 500, even 1000 new profiles a day with 2-15 seconds pause, last year.

Yesterday I tried to follow 120 profiles with 30-60 sec pause and...again I got banned.
Did you also notice that its harder to automatically follow nowadays, or is it just me?

Thank you

I`m spending my days unlocking, despite being constant in my automation of my accounts... It`s become unworkable, twitter.

I haven't noticed or heard of anything.

As these new accounts?
Old accounts?
Quality accounts? Spam accounts?
Quality IP / proxy?

Everything - I had great accounts, working for a long time, that suddenly got banned. Especially if they were popular, they went on perma lock :( It's almost random (read: their algorithms are the worst ever).

Twitter is fundamentally broken and I only stick around because there are no alternatives or you drown in Republican hate speech (anti LGBT, etc etc)

PS: I hate spam and other default tricks like followback etc. I really try to automate what I'd normally have to do by hand... And yes, I use proxies but each account gets its own fixed IP to use forever... So it's not changing often - if ever.
