Excellent! I have also dropped Giveaway Guy and Mythical Books.
Do you tweet for a lot of blog giveaways - daily tweets?
I've been good for a couple of days.
Trying to figure out how often I can tweet without trouble.

Yes I do a lot of blogs and sometimes I am sending out tweets close together. I have tried to wait at least a couple of minutes between them.



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

OK this is just what I was hoping you would post - how often!
For right now I am doing about 15 minutes apart - so far so good.

set up with your phone number & it won't get suspended.

It helps to have an anon account that you can just set up with hootesuite or other apps to not even have to login and deal with it.

There are programs to set it up to automatically just do what you need

Just got locked out for the first time since August 26th. No idea what caused it as I hadn't done anything different then I've been doing since then.

I was getting a ton of DMs once I got unlocked thanking me for the follow ... and I know I didn't just follow all of them..

So I went in and revoked all apps that allow others to post, read, etc.. and by the next day things settled back to normal... maybe you should check to see who has access through apps when you get back on.

And I also changed my password just in case.

So sorry to hear of this again.
Are you back in?
Was the giveaway that blocked you The Giveaway Guy?
That one gets me suspended.
Please keep us all posted.
I had been hoping this was done business.

Thanks for the reminder to check my Twitter apps.
Everything was OK.

Yes, had them call with the code and got right back in.
Was not a Giveaway Guy entry, but can't remember what blog it was.
I too thought this was done with since it was nearly 2 months without an issue.

Hopefully all will be OK now.
Would be helpful if you knew which tweet it was.

I just got locked out again after having no issues for over a month. I was on Mythical Books site and I think that was one of the suspects the last time too. My phone number does not work as it is not a cell phone. They need to fix this mess.

That makes three of us.
Don't know if I am doing any mythical books right now.

If your phone # doesn't work do you have to file an appeal and wait to be unlocked?

Yes you have to appeal and then they send you an automated reply to go through the phone thing and then I have to reply to them that they will not accept my phone since it is not a cell. Then if I am lucky they will send another message and unlock me. Then again maybe not. and then I have to it all over again.
