What is up with that? I haven't been locked out yet but I know what you are saying. There was a guy bragging about inventing a program and seeks out post with follow and retweet post and follows and retweets for him.

Curr4001 October 25th, 2017 11:19pm

Also there have been several sweeps I've tried to enter with retweeting and Twitter won't allow it, saying it looks like an automated tweet.

nanajoyner October 26th, 2017 7:19am

I'm locked out again & I do a lot of Amazon sweeps so that's probably why:confused:

bigskwinner October 26th, 2017 12:58pm

i TWEET too fast and get c... blocked every single day

that's just about the only tweets hubby does.. and he got blocked.. at least that's the only type he did on a daily basis.

I don't tweet fast.. those gleam that have "tweet" for 8 different tweets or so, I do maybe 2 a day. same with follow..

jalapenomama November 9th, 2017 8:22pm

I have had Twitters suspensions also - a lot of them.
There is another link for Twitter suspensions that I started awhile ago.
Quite frustrating!
I think it's quite sad that there is no one to talk with at Twitter.
Responses have all been so vague.

Yes it ticks me off that many can tweet like crazy with no problem.
And I get singled out - especially when I am not doing anything underhanded.

There are a few sites that automatically lock my account.
Giveaway Guy and Mythical giveaways (not sure I said that last one right).

My solution is to leave more time between tweets - maybe 10 minutes.
And to send out some personal tweets.
So far that has been working.

Hope this works out for everyone.

I don't think that has anything to do with it.

Think I was too hasty in saying this.
Maybe tweets just for Amazon seem automated to Twitter.

jalapenomama November 9th, 2017 8:26pm

Also check your Twitter apps to see who has permission to tweet for you.
Mine shows giveaway tools, Gleam & Klout.

bomar97 November 9th, 2017 9:59pm

I'm thinking it's related to any that you click "tweet" and it gets done w/o you doing anything.. versus those that you click "tweet" and a box pops up with the tweet your are supposed to tweet and you physically click on the tweet.

Amazon does not come up with the box.. the same with lots of gleam or that type ...

I've heard that also.
Gleam is notorious for this.

jalapenomama November 12th, 2017 12:06am

For those who have been having Twitter suspensions - do you do any non giveaway tweets?
I've heard that makes us not look so automated.
I do maybe 6 a day now.

Brittles November 12th, 2017 11:29am

No, all mine are giveaways. Guess I better find something to start tweeting about.

I send personal tweets to a couple of friends each day.
Thinking that is now a necessity.
And I think once you have had several suspensions Twitter keeps a really close eye on you.

Do not think I will ever be able to tweet the way I used to - sometimes one after the other.

Hmm, I wonder why I never signed up for it. Maybe I have enough other things to annoy me?

alycep06 November 12th, 2017 10:00pm

I just got knocked off again............waiting for the appeal to be answered again................this is really getting old

How many times has this happened to you?

Yes it is totally annoying.

I've been good for awhile but you never know!

jalapenomama November 30th, 2017 1:04am

Just got a Twitter lock - had to call to get a code.
Tweet from Divanewsreviews - don't know if that caused it.
Geez geez geez....

I got locked earlier today too (first time in awhile and I've been doing at least one non sweeps related tweet per day).

alycep06 November 30th, 2017 2:18pm

Been locked out 3 times this week. I am waiting now 24 hrs for the last time for them to unlock the account. I am really getting annoyed. Why can't we actually talk to someone there?

I had been doing six personal tweets daily - thought that would keep me safe.
Had been good for at least a couple of weeks.
This really makes you wonder.

themomof11 December 1st, 2017 12:50am

I was locked out 4 times yesterday. Tonight I got locked out and can't get back in because my cell phone won't turn on and Twitter won't let me change my phone number. I have emailed them for help and am waiting for something to be done. I am so frustrated!

plazamama December 1st, 2017 9:22am

alycep06 December 1st, 2017 9:43am

Since I have no cell phone I cannot get back on via their procedure so need to send a request each time and wait-this time I sent 3 requests and waited 40 hours for them to unlock it in the middle of the night. This is unfair and Twitter needs to work with the bloggers so we all have an equal chance to enter.

themomof11 December 1st, 2017 3:18pm

Twitter unlocked me! Yay! They emailed me this: "Hello,

Your account is now unlocked, and we’re sorry for the inconvenience.

Well that's what we all get for a response.
Was this your 1st lock?

jalapenomama December 5th, 2017 7:30pm

Anothe lock f om Millsy loves books.

jenndiggy December 5th, 2017 10:07pm

I'm already worried about SweeperBowl Sunday! My best win of the year was from Turkish Airlines during the SweeperBowl.

I've gotten locked out for several days in a row after tweeting from Millsy Loves Books. I get right back in after the text code, but it's annoying. I finally deleted the giveaway to retweet daily. I can't figure out what it is that causes it. I see nothing in the tweet that would trigger it. But I'm done tweeting from there for now.

bigskwinner December 6th, 2017 12:53am

looked out constantly and I don't even try to start world war 3..what the ack is up with that?

all my offensiive tweets to contest


OH OH AN ohhhh
someone compared sweepers to the borg (one collective , one mind set to win lol)

jalapenomama December 6th, 2017 1:04am

Mythical Books and Giveaway Guy have caused some of mine too

jalapenomama December 6th, 2017 4:56pm

So we a e somewhat on the ight t ack.
Why some can tweet those and othe s can't?

MiNiKE December 6th, 2017 6:23pm

The same tweet that caused a lock out from Millsy Loves Books did not cause it when I tweeted it from Romance Novel Giveaways today. Really weird.
I'm going to start keeping a list.

These are the ones that have caused my lock outs over the last week. Double checked by being locked out multiple times from same tweet origin.

Millsy Loves Books
Mommy Katie
The Mommy Island


I just did an experiment. I looked for a new one from The Mommy Island I hadn't entered before. I found this one http://themommyisland.blogspot.com/2...pare-with.html.
I tweeted only the first tweet there and immediately was locked out of Twitter. I don't understand it at all!
