Another thing - maybe I posted this before.
What the heck exactly does this mean?
This was in reply that lifted suspension.

Twitter has automated systems that find and remove automated spam accounts and it looks like your account got caught up in one of these spam groups by mistake. This sometimes happens when an account exhibits automated behavior in violation of the Twitter Rules (https://twitter.com/rules).

On one hand says it is a mistake but the following part?
Is it saying that I showed automated behavior?

Wish I knew someone who worked at Twitter.

Anyone have any ideas to to solve this?

OK I am still on the hunt for a solution.
I came across this
https://blog.twitter.com/official/en_us.html
Don't see any answer there?
You would think there would be some contact person.

I was just locked out of my Twitter account. I was able to get back in with the phone number thing and the code.

I read the rules. I looked at my recent tweets. The only thing I can see that might have set it off was that I entered/tweeted a number of "Oh The Places You'll Go" sweeps.

From now on I'm not going to tweet those contests that have 100 blogs involved. I think that might have been what set it off. Did anyone else have something similar?


EDIT: Okay, this is what those "Oh The Places You'll Go" Tweets look like:

Follow @Twistedsoul1020 @utsadeli for drop the spotlight and events and more #rt #retweet #follow (it also has a picture)

I wonder if the #'s with RT, retweet and #follow are "Spammy". This does actually look spammy. There is a picture involved that tells the story of the sweep, but these words are probably the problem.

I never really looked at what I was tweeting. I think I'm going to be much more careful from now on.

My other Wonder is if a trend started with bloggers for certain hashtags and that's why we're starting to see this.

I'm really glad you opened/started this thread. I'm sure we're not the only ones.

Thanks for your post.
Yes I believe there are more tweeters out there with this problem.
I still don't think it is anything we are doing.
I've been watching my tweets more and wasn't any with a number of hashtags.
Why would it be a problem all of a sudden?
I hope you have just the one time experience.

Another thought - are the new Twitter rules that we do not know about?

For my lock out I'm pretty sure having around 5 tweets that said: #rt #retweet #follow was the problem for me.

Those #hashtags seem spammy. Why would they want someone to look up #follow?

The reason for hashtags is if someone wants to (for instance) see cute cat pictures, they put in the search bar #cutecats and they get what they are looking for. Who puts in the search bar #follow? Spammers, that's who!

Twitter is big on not getting followers for the sake of followers. They want it to be social.

Sorry, this my soapbox or personal pet peeve. I really dislike it when people don't use hashtags appropriately. For instance, you don't say to your co-worker, "ugh, I can't wait until quitting time, Hashtag I'm out of here." That's not how hashtags work!


I will be more picky about what I tweet and I will especially be on the look-out for those 50 blogs involved in sweeps. Hopefully, if we're all on the look-out we can figure out the problems. I will bet there are more than one type of tweet that got us all in trouble.

Can I figure that - When the suspension page shows, it was the last tweet that caused it?

No, I wouldn't say that it was the last tweet that caused the lock down.

My reasoning is that oftentimes Twitter will suspend for things more as a cumulative effect. Like one follow - unfollow - follow might be a mistake. If you do it 100 times it's a spam pattern.

So I wouldn't necessarily think it was the last tweet. My last tweet before the lock was . . .


Maybe you are right!

I just looked and it was that one with the Oh The Places You'll Go was the last one. I have Twitter Analytics to keep track of my reach with my Etsy shop. That last tweet was not in my analytics. I wonder if that one was the one that tripped it.

It didn't have the goofy hashtags, but it was still in there with the Oh The Places You'll Go. Maybe what triggered the lock was too many Oh The Places tweets, especially with the #Follow tag on a few of them.

I think I'm going to be more careful and read the tweets before I tweet them right out. Although, with Gleam you can't see the tweets. You're just tweeting blind. I never used to mind, but now I wonder if that can get us into trouble.

If it's not one thing . . .

Question - use Star Angels Reviews for an example.
I sometimes have 4 of them with a tweet. Doing them one after the other - think that could be a problem?
I think we just might figure this out in time!

Do not know if this is just a coincidence - Two days ago and today I tweeted for giveaway guy and right after doing the tweet got suspended again now.

Could it be that # at the end?

I haven't been suspended lately but every time I enter more than one at Mommy Katie blog I get locked out and have to change my password. At this point I don't even remember what my current password is. I've decided not to even enter there. Also I've noticed some blog tweets have #ad. I'm eliminating that because it looks really spammy to me.

Would you please look at my tweets for today (14) and see if any of them look like they could be a problem?
