Twitter raises the follow limit from 2000 to 5000


Twitter thought that many users of the platform would want more than 2000 accounts to follow in the social network, so it has raised this number up to 5000, thinking that it has enough anti-spam tools to prevent any problems that may come from these 5000 followers.


Besides the users’ desire that Twitter appear to have predicted, a side-effect of this update might be that all the users with Twitter accounts will spend much more time among tweets, articles, suggestions and other type of content, as they have more accounts to follow from which to receive this content.
