Try to follow more than 2001 and you’ll see that you can’t!
How to get past this limit? Get more people to follow you!
The exact number can be attained by the 10% rule. 1819 people have to follow you so you can break the 2001 limit. So Twitter only lets you follow the number of followers that you have plus 10%.
So for every 10 new followers, you are allowed to follow 11 new birds (Tweeters)
Few people know this fact until they reach that 2,001 number, then they google it, and find this post. Educate your peers.
