How could we improve Audiense?

Randomize time between follows/unfollows so Twitter doesn't penalize you

Twitter penalizes you for aggressive following/unfollowing users. I suggest randomizing the time between follows/unfollows (for example, 4-20 seconds between follows) to make them appear to be human actions instead of an automated tool. This is similar to what Tweet Adder does, but would be so much better if integrated with Social Bro.

        this is a severe issue.. which u need to fix on your app.
        otherwise users will not know what those limits are.. and will mass follow which looks like automation..

        u cant offer a feature that by its nature has no safety net.
        i have teams of people following users filtered results.. ( 500 a day )
        this is acceptable by Twitter..

        What is NOT acceptable is the frequency of following/unfollowing.
        Which using your app is too FAST!

        Allowing us to use a random time delay easily solves this..and is within Twitter's terms.

        also your current Waring Error on followers is NOT correct or accurate.

        it should say there is 1000 follow limit...

        This would be a powerful feature. You already allow us to Mass Follow.. but then u Warn us that TW will penalize us if we do!!! so add some delays ...DUH!
