We will probably never know why this is happening but sure would like to!
And why some can tweet a site without a problem and another will get a lock out.
go figure

Whoa - you actually lost your Twitter acct?
First time I've heard this.
The only thing I have heard of is Twitter locks outs.

Yes after a number of lock outs they will deactivate your account as they feel you are a spam bot because we post the same things over & over sometimes for giveaways. That is why I have stopped doing any tweets at all giveaway or not. I still have an account.

Thanks for the reply.
I have had a number of Twitter lockouts but my account was never deactivated.
I have a list of sites that have locked me out and I don't do tweets there anymore.
Since then I have been OK.

Also, I don't comprehend why some can do the bolt out tweet and others can't.

Just got locked out for the first time since Nov. I was actually thinking that it wasn't going to happen anymore.



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

I thought the storm had passed, too. That's a shame. I hope you got back in.

Do you remember which site you were tweeting at?

I use Tweets judiciously, but I do sweeps that give extra for entries for tweets. Never been locked out. So far...

Hi Brad
There is really no explanation for this.
Some of us have a problem with Twitter locks and others do not even with the same tweet.
