Twitter's Limits You Need To Know
Dave Zoradi is ManageFlitter's U.S. based customer support representative.

At some point after creating a Twitter account you may bump up against various limits or rules that Twitter has in place. These limitations set by Twitter do not discriminate and they apply to all Twitter users.

We've outlined the most common Twitter limits below.

1. Tweets Can Only Include 140 Characters.

    If you are new to Twitter we understand how challenging it can be to grow your account and gain followers. It is difficult to build momentum when the account has very few followers. This is a classic catch-22 situation. The fewer followers you have the harder it is to gain new followers and the more followers you have the easier it is to gain new followers.

    Twitter announced that they have introduced a new "mute" button.  Twitter have noted that they are progressively rolling out this feature so you may not have access to this feature via Twitter yet.

    We have already updated ManageFlitter for all users to include this new mute option.  You can now identify and select Twitter accounts that you are following and mute them in the same way you identify and follow/unfollow accounts on ManageFlitter.

    Please note: you can still use this mute feature via ManageFlitter even if you don't  yet have access to this feature via Twitter.

    This mute feature will also work with the ManageFlitter Remote Account Management...

    Social media provides marketers with the long sought after holy grail: direct access to the thoughts of the consumer and the ability to target content or advertisements to consumers based on interest, location, and other variables. Access to consumers' minds and the ability to target consumers in a highly calibrated manner is very useful when wanting to "sell stuff" in a cost effective manner.

    Twitter is a real-time social network that allows you to communicate with people in 140 characters or less. Twitter gives you the ability to follow or be followed by other Twitter accounts in an asynchronous manner.

    This means that if you follow a specific Twitter account they don’t necessarily need to follow you back in order for you to see their tweet stream.

    Whilst most Twitter accounts have been set up and are managed by legitimate individuals or businesses, due to the open nature of Twitter it is possible for someone to set up a “fake” or “spam” Twitter account. 

    In fact, by some measures there are over 20 million fake accounts on Twitter!

    It is even possible to pay to have a collection of fake accounts follow you to boost the perception of your popularity on Twitter....

    ‘I can’t follow you back because I’ve reached a limit.’

    ‘I’ll follow you back once I figure out why Twitter won’t let me follow anyone else.’

    Sound familiar? Or maybe you have followed over 2,000 people on Twitter and then can’t follow anyone else. Well, guess what? You’re not stuck at following 2,000.

    Let’s deconstruct.
