    Bad apples are in any imaginable group of people. These two are a disgrace. I am sure that the black community will repudiate them as every other community shall repudiate their bad apples. We all are in the same boat and beneath our skins we are all the same. This moment in the evolving history of our specie, requires all humans to be one, if we are to survive.

    #1 There are Bots and there are BOTS. The locksmith and the burglar use the same tools.

    There are Tweet Bots who follow at random and reply to tweets with nonsensical comments. Why? What do they stand to gain?

    Just because we CAN do something does not mean we SHOULD

    The question is one of intent. It's a question of being a good citizen. Yes, the road to Hell is paved with good intentions, but we take what steps we can to limit them.

    Example: A certain lady here that just about everyone loves and respects joined myTweetPack. She was so thrilled at how easy it was to store and schedule supporting tweets she got carried away. At one point she was tweeting 350 times a day, mostly shares and retweets, but still.

    We coded the min/max daily tweet function in response to her exuberance.

    The intention was not to spam but to promote others. Still, spam it was.

    #2 #1 re: Twitter.
    1 - A single tweet is a proverbial fart in a hurricane... useless just like a single radio spot is useless. My feed zooms along at 3000 tweets an hour. I see what I see and I don't see what I don't see. So what?
    2 - Twitter locks accounts up often. Their algorithm monitors for "unusual activity." That's not a big deal, unlock and that activity becomes "usual." A recent algorithm change locks 6X more than it used to. The Developer Community is annoyed. I'm coding an automated email to members if myTweetPack detects a lock. File that under P for poop happens. The alternative is to abandon the platform. Since it generates 65%+ of my site visits, I don't think I will. Like Gary Vee said, "Twitter is a marketer's dream"
    3- To continue the radio analogy, there are two types of people on Twitter, listeners and promoters. I'm talking to promoters here.
    4 - Without some sort of automation system, Twitter will not help you. PERIOD. Neither will Facebook. Even LinkedIn engagement is better on automated status updates than full posts.

    You don't like automation? Tough. It's here to stay. There is simply no alternative.

    To promote you MUST tweet a good mix of your stuff and that of others. The sweet spot is 50 to 100 a day. My accounts auto-add if they tweet < 50 and auto-delete > 125 are scheduled.

    Anything new is unusual. By definition, sudden changes are unusual activity. We suggest gradual changes. The alternative is to start hard, accept that you will be locked, unlock and continue.

    Following nobody, then 250 in one shot is definitely unusual. Getting locked was a guarantee. Same as some new members who tweet 5 times a day for months then 75 times the next. Locking is assured. No biggie.

    Dean, you did not do anything wrong. You can follow up to 1000 people a day to a max of 5000, or 10% more than follow you, total. Stick to 200 new followings a day and maintain a strict unfollow if not followed back system (3-day grace).

    #1 Thanks for your participation Dean. I'm not too worried about the Bots. People don't do plastic flowers, they do fresh! People ultimately vote with their feet. Also to find ways to hack social media doesn't work! Sometimes you just need to do the hard yards to get the real results.
