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!

I have about a 50% lockout rate on the Giveaway Guy sweeps. I contacted Seth there and he had no idea why it was happening. He suggested I change the tweet a little so I did and still got locked out.

Edit:

I just got a notice to change my twitter password after trying to tweet an entry on Beck Valley Books.

I got locked out today and the only thing I've been doing differently are the Amazon giveaways. I believe they are the culprits.

I do not think it is the Amazon giveaways.
I do lots of them without a lock.
At this point I think it is mo e specific blog sites.
Just my guess.

I agree! I rarely do any Amazon ones and I get at least 1 lockout a day from specific sites. Only one lockout today so far and it was after doing several RT giveaways in a row.
