If you have 7000 people following you already it's not the 2000/1900
follow restriction it's just the daily follow limit API.


Wait until tomorrow and try again etc. 


This will obvious take 5 days for you to get all follow backs

Subject: [twitter-dev] follow limits


Hi there,

I have a twitter account I use for my company, which has just over 7,000
current followers. Because we're just about to launch a DM-based support
service on that account, I'm trying to programmatically follow all these
7,000 users back, but am stuck at about 1,500, and am getting the "You
are unable to follow more people at this time" message.

The account is whitelisted, but it seems the follow limits are separate
to that? Is there anything that can be done to help this - this is a
legit account, and since these particular support functions (essentially
reminder-type questions) require proof of a user's twitter account, a DM
bot would be an ideal and quick solution, but will obviously only work
if we can follow all our existing followers back.

Any help/pointers appreciated, thanks,
