I'm being more cautious now with tweets. I'm sure in another couple of months I'll be back to my reckless ways. Still don't know why they include dumb hashtags.

Thank you! I will check that out and hopefully bank it into my memory!

Wish I knew! I only do a few sweeps with tweets.. I do some likes, etc.. in between.. but Twitter, like FB, has no "real" people to give you any answers!

EDIT: So, now I'm analyzing this last tweet and I think I see what triggered it. I highlighted and bolded what I think was the offending hashtag. Here it is:

On the Sixth day of #12DaysofGiveaways the Mommy Island gave to me..the chance to #win a @BrentwoodHomeLA Prize Package! #ad

Why would anyone put hashtag ad is beyond me. But I didn't check the tweet first, mostly because I haven't been locked out in a few months.

Twitter says they don't like misuse of hashtags. I get that, but I wish they'd give a list of what misuse actually is.
Okay.. I looked and found a tweet to enter an Amazon giveaway.. and guess what? same #ad at the end of the tweet!!!

No lockouts here for almost a week. I took a walk on the wild side yesterday and tweeted from Millsy Loves Books. No lockout. Maybe Twitter is chilling out LOL

Since I've reached the conclusion (Thanks Bomar!) that it's stupid or spammy hashtags (## or #ad) I've not had any more problems. I just give a quick look at the tweet and I no longer tweet something that has a spammy or stupid hashtag.

It is automated on Twitter's part and they only want genuine interactions. Sweepstakes tweets are genuine since if someone wanted to enter sweeps without an OLS subscription, they would only have to follow me and they'd have a ton of sweeps to enter

I wish there was a way, besides emailing which might look bitchy and obnoxious, to communicate this to bloggers and advertisers. I don't believe they are putting in spammy tweets on purpose.

Did it have a stupid hashtag? Like ## or something else that might seem like spam? That has been my theory. That is why the #ad (complete spam) was something to avoid. Twitter doesn't like hashtags that don't contribute to a conversation.

I know, I roll my eyes because I just don't see Twitter as a way to meaningfully communicate, but they do.

I am so sorry this has happened to you.
I do a lot of Amazon and do not see that as an issue.
How often do you tweet?
I used to be able to tweet one after the one without any problem.
I would like to try that again but think I would get a lock out again.

I am going to start watching my tweets for the #ad.
I've been good for awhile now and in a way hate to say it.
Don't want to jinx myself.

I still tweet one right after another, usually with Gleam. I haven't had problem. I might thing Twitter had a problem with the Amazon algorithm or something, except it doesn't do it every time. I still think it's something about the tweet Twitter doesn't like. But they won't come right out and say it, they hem and haw about meaningful conversations.

I wasn't doing too many in a row... but I had totally stopped and not maybe doing 5 or 6 in a day...

The Amazon ones are the only ones I just started doing again...

Luckily it was the easy out on twitter.. I just had to do a recaptcha and they let me back in!

#giveaway shouldn't be a problem. Maybe it's something about Amazon that Twitter doesn't like. I don't know. Thanks for the update, though. I feel like a sleuth trying to crack the code .
