    do you mean you are following?
    its not followers It is that you are following to 2000 users and it is the limit until you reach more than 1500 followers

    There is a ratio. You can only follow a certain amount of users providing that you have a proportionally appropriate number of followers. As sb225 pointed out, this can happen with 2,000 but it can also happen any time.

    This is because Twitter identifies people who aggressively follow as spammers. Twitter is often right.

    No, it probably isn't.

    There is a ratio. You can follow 5,000 people providing that a proportionally appropriate number of people are following you back. We hit it once with @sitepointdotcom.

    the problem is not with followers

    it it with following, when you reach at limit 2000 you got message that you reached to limit.............

    but you can increase your limit...


    unfollow them who not follow you....

    and get start again with following more and more people......do not do it so aggressively....

    otherwise it may be possible that twitter count you as spammer............

    you have to maintain the ratio of following and followers

    .......and last do not forgot to follow me........

    have a nice tweet........!!!

    Yes, the best way to keep the ratio good is to unfollow everyone that doesn't follow you. Search "Twitter Karma". It's a great free tool that allows you to easily do this.

    btw, what would mean "aggressive" for you in numbers? I've been suspended once for an "aggrressive follower churn" (mass following and unfollowing), but that was really alot (reaching limits and doing it every day, after 3-4 limit reaches you're blocked). Is 400 followers a day too much? or maybe 800? How long to wait to unfollow those who do not follow you back? I've heard numbers of 24 and 72 hours..

    This is a good thread. I did not know that there was a ratio enforced. I don't follow very many people to be honest. I typically only follow those who I want to get information from. So this will probably never effect me. I had no idea that the ratio was in place, though.

    wow.. I never thought that twitter can be approached like that. But then again, I never got more than a thousand followers.

    jacks smith that one is true! I was actually pretty pissed off when I clicked on this guy's link which was on a trending topic and then was warned by my antivirus software that it's attempting to download a virus. X(

    Guys, if you want to have a more peaceful twitter account follow those you want to follow, those of which you can reply and interact. Following many people won't help you promote your website. Yes it will gain more traffic... but it will be useless. Find people that you know will have an interest in your tweets.

    I really think the limit of followers allowed in twitter are 2000 only, that's the maximum I think. Maybe that's why you're experiencing some errors on it.

    I have seen many of my followers having more than 5,000 followers and 10K follwing, vice-vers or both. For instance you can see my followers at my twitter id "twitterdotcom/seoindiausauk". So limit of 2000 is unacceptable. There may be some other reason, please check it out.
