congrats!

I keep track of my wins, but I might try to keep track of how I won as well. A while ago, giveaways hosts would show you the exact entry that won the item. I've won with tweets, but that was before these entry forms. Where you'd have to enter with just comments.

After 6 days of no lockouts and being able to tweet from sites that previously caused them, I was locked out immediately after tweeting from The Mommy Island today. Got right back in after the texted code, but I am steering clear of tweeting from there for a while again.

No lock-outs since I stopped tweeting and following on the Amazon sweeps... I do the Gleam platforms

Yes The Mommy Island is on my list for lockouts.

Jalapenomama, Gleam can get you, too. It really does depend on the tweet. I check every gleam tweet for ## or #ad before I tweet them.

Not too many do stupid hashtags, but that is one of the things that will lock you out. I'm positive of it.

I understand about the #ad.
What about the ##?
Do you mean double hashtags?

Okay, I hadn't been locked out for over a month. Just now I didn't get completely locked out, but rather I got a message of temporary limited ability and just had to click the I am not a robot to get full access. This happened after doing a bunch of the Amazon giveaways within the last hour.



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

Did you do the tweets back to back?

Yes, double hashtags. I put them both together because that is how I saw them in the tweet. It was also a tweet with #ad, but I have to think that ## (#hashtag) must be meaningless. Twitter wants real conversations and information being passed.

not only does it look dumb, it serves no real purpose. A hashtag is a way to check on trending topics. I think there are people that have no idea what the purpose of a hashtag is.

Some were tweets and others were follows. I don't think I did them any closer together then I do tweets for blog giveaways.

I believe if you follow too many people too quickly Twitter will explain that to you. I forget the wording, but I got that several times but now I'm following the usual sweeps so it doesn't happen anymore. The wording is very specific, you're not left wondering.

Interesting I do not recall seeing anything with double #'s.

What if the Twitter lockouts have nothing to do with what we are tweeting.
Problems the website/blog site are having?

Jalapenomama, I also think there might be a website connection. Especially how Bomar was talking about the Amazon sweeps.

One of my suspicious (got blocked for) tweets had ## in it. Maybe that was a coincidence, but since I think it's silly to have double hashtags, I won't tweet anything anymore with those in it.

This page has twitter rules. Under SPAM, there are some things that are behind the scenes such as:

Forge any TCP/IP packet header or any part of the header information in any email or posting, or in any way use Twitter to send altered, deceptive, or false source-identifying information.


I'm not sure many tweets look like this, but this is also in the rules:

if your Tweets or Direct Messages consist mainly of links shared without commentary;

Here is the link for the twitter rules. Spam is towards the end of the page http://help.twitter.com/en/rules-and.../twitter-rules
