Follow and Unfollow 

Having a large amount of Twitter followers means that many people will see your messages. That’s why it’s important to continuously grow your Twitter followers. Having a large amount of targeted followers can increase your web traffic, sales and profits.

How many people can you follow?

It’s important to keep your Twitter account safe and avoid your account from being suspended.

Marketers have different opinions of how many followers you can safely add and remove in a day.

I can’t give exact numbers as it will vary depending on how many followers you already have and how established your account is. Established accounts can add more followers than new accounts. If the account is new, you must grow it slowly.

Twitter requires a certain ratio between the people you follow and the people who follow you. This is why you’ll need to remove non-active followers regularly to  be able to keep adding followers. To avoid being suspended, never follow more than 1,000 people than your followers’ number. E.g. If your followers are 20,000, it is not advisable to follow 25,000 people.

Here’s a safer way to get followers : 

Follow at different times during the day, e.g. part in the morning, in the middle of the day and in the evening.

Spread out tweets throughout the day. If you use any kind of software, have at least 5-7 minutes between tweets.

Once you have followed 2,000 users, there are limits to the number of additional users you can follow. This number is different for each account and is based on your ratio of followers to following; this ratio is not published.  Everyone is subject to limits, even high profile accounts.

If you’ve reached the account-based follow limit (2,000 users), you’ll need to wait until you have more followers before you can follow additional users.

REMOVE FOLLOWERS: Don’t unfollow the same amount of followers each day. Unfollow at different times –  e.g. some in the morning and some during Twitter’s peak hours (around 9PM and 1am US time).

Using some tools can save you a lot of time.

I’ve been using Hootsuite for a while to send messages to Twitter and Facebook. Hootsuite is great for  automating my messages. It is still one of the safest programs to use today.
