Getting banned because you followed or unfollowed too many people on social media is every digital marketers worst nightmare. So I created a list to never get banned from any social media network’s limitations for Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn & Twitter.
The limits on Twitter are basically universal
How many Characters per Tweet?
How many PMs (Private Messages) can you send on twitter per day?
1000 PM’s per day
How many Tweets can you send on twitter per day?
2400 tweets per day
How many New Accounts can you follow on twitter per day?
1000 new follows per day
How many New Accounts can you unfollow on twitter per day?
1000 unfollows per day. Keep in mind you are only allowed a total of 1000 follows AND unfollows on twitter per day.
How many new followers can you have on twitter per day?
What’s the maximum number of accounts you can follow on Twitter?
If you have less than 5000 followers, you can follow up 5000 accounts max.
If you have more then 5000, you can follow up to 10% more than your total followers’ count.
For example, if you have 6,000 followers. You can follow up to 7,000 accounts.
Instagram is a littler trickier than Twitter. There are no official limits but Instagram does have regulations to limit spam on accounts. New accounts or accounts created at least 3 months ago have limitations on them, for example if you go from 0 to 1000 likes in a matter of days Instagram may banned you. In order to avoid this you have to warm up your account.
How to warm up you Instagram account?
On day on start by following 40 to 60 people. Every day increase that number by 10 to 20 additional accounts. Do this for about 3 months until you account is warmed up.
