OK this situation is not over.
Just got a lockout from Romance Novel Giveaways.
They were a problem before and then it was OK.
Geez this is way too old.
And I am going to repeat this question - why some can tweet at these sites and others cannot.

It makes no sense. Months without issue even with tweeting from sites that had been a problem and now it's happening again.



Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Yes I want to know what is going on - although I won't find out.
I have a right o know for the inconvenience.

Are they @RomanceNovelGiv ? If so, maybe it's because they've been restricted:

"Caution: This account is temporarily restricted

You’re seeing this warning because there has been some unusual activity from this account. Do you still want to view it?"

Thanks for the info.
Yes that is the site.
They are not showing restriction now.
I am staying away from tweeting there.

Unhappy
Crap just had another lockout.
Doing a tweet at Give Me Books (never happened to me before at this site).

Did the Twitter lockout appeal and -
Your account appears to have exhibited automated behavior that violates the Twitter Rules: https://support.twitter.com/articles/18311.

I was not tweeting a lot so not over any limits.

This giveaway had three tweets and there is another site with the same giveaway.
Maybe those tweets being done too much with the three times and at least two sites?

The big questions - is it the tweet or the site or both?

Twitterphobia has just kicked in again!

Gripe gripe gripe.

Oh oh just saw that I lost about 1000 people I was following.
Did that have anything to do with the lockout?
Too many questions without any answers.
I might need a short break from daily tweets.
I get too upset/ticked off.

I have never had an issue until about 2 weeks ago..locked out every other day..waste of time..I noticed if I wait a full minute (via widget) to retweet it doesn't do it..

It's the entry form
I hate when they do this to me! I have found that I cannot ever follow on twitter or tweet using the gleam form on any site or I will be automatically locked out of twitter!

I got locked again today, totally different site that I tweeted from just before it happened. There really is no rhyme or reason to this since each time it's happened it's been a different site and I've then gone on to tweet from the same site without an issue the next several times. Also didn't happen for months and now twice in a short period of time.



Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Interesting - I haven't had any problem with the gleam form.
Again shows no rhyme or reason.

Yes same here.
Maybe if we knew what causes this we could avoid it - don't see that happening soon,

5 days later another lockout
I was tweeting at stormynightsbloginandreviewing - yes another lockout.
I did not have this on my avoid list.
I have to wait to unlock it because the battery on my cell phone is so low.
OK is it just me?
Maybe I have a sign on my forehead that says I have nothing better to do - lock my Twitter account.
Those of you who have never had a problem with this be grateful.

I have to add that if I were doing automated tweets, tweeting offensive things or tweeting one after the other I could understand.
I have been leaving more time between tweets hoping it would help with these lock outs.
