Something is definitely going on.
I tweet also primarily for giveaways.
Do you suppose this could all be a mistake on Twitter's part?
Let's keep each other informed on any new incidents.

Are you doing Rafflecopter? I rarely do those. They could be the problem. Gleam recently changed their forms so it doesn't auto send the tweet, it pops up for you to send.
How much of a mix between original tweets you write, replies, retweets, etc? Are you tweeting about things unrelated to giveaways? I think that if you are just tweeting from a bunch of blogs that probably looks automated.

hare2win I only do tweets for giveaways - a lot of them are Rafflecopter.
I've been entering blog giveaways & tweeting for several years and never had a problem until the last two weeks.
I noticed that one of my giveaway tweets was RT'd 12 times.
Could that be a problem?
I don't think it's anything I'm doing/not doing on my end.
Thanks for your reply.

No I only use Tweeter for sweeps/contest entries. This is a recent development but does not seem to be happening to everyone. I wonder if the blog owners are aware of the issues some of us are having entering their contests-there traffic will suffer for sure. It may be something they are doing with their forms etc.

jalapenomama,

I don't know what your twitter issue is. I tweet for Sweeps and my Etsy & Artyah shops. I've never had a problem. Someone re-tweeting your tweets is not the problem, or I'd have been kicked off long ago.

I wonder if you're tweeting from a site that Twitter is sensing is Spammy? Maybe their SSL security certificate on the website hasn't been updated or something. I don't know what else it could be.

What email do you use? I wonder if that is the problem. Not the big ones (hotmail, gmail, outlook etc) but an 'off brand.' I used to have an email from a place called Iwon(dot)com. So my addresses was @iwon. Now to me that looks spammy so I quit using it.

I had a bout of trouble with Twitter a while back, so I do feel your frustration. It was when you could only follow so many unless you have a certain number of followers, I'm sure you know what I mean. Is starting a new account an option for you? I understand why you don't want to, believe me!

Thanks for keeping us updated. I try to understand twitter better and hearing these stories sometimes gives insight to what they're doing. In this case, though, I'm lost.

Good luck!

Still having the same issue-They block me, I try their phone number/code routine. It says technical problem, try again I send customer support an issues they return with automated response having no bearing to my problem , I reply, they send another email telling me I have been caught in their automated program check and they are sorry and they open my account. That works for about 3-4 tweets and I have the problem again. I am disgusted and have no way to talk to a real person so I also have a complaint about automated systems-THEIRS!

alycepo6 here's what I started doing - I used to go down the list in my sweeps software every day the same order.
Now I am moving all around when I do my daily tweets.
Also I am adding a space in a lot of my tweets so they are not the same.
I think that will help.

I tried this but had the same result-blocked again. I am giving up for a while.

I found this article and thought you might like to read it. Twitter is in the middle part of the article. Not sure if it's pertinent to this discussion exactly, but it has a different take on banning. This is called Ghost Banning

I just had my account locked after sending out a bunch of tweets while doing blog entries. I've done the same amount or more in the past and never had a problem before. Got it unlocked immediately though after having them call with a code to enter.



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

Brittles - my story exactly.
I started switching up the order of the tweets and adding a space or minor changes to the tweets.
I was good for a couple of days and today the suspension again.
I got back in right away with my phone.

Just had my account suspended again.
That's once yesterday and once today.
Got back in with phone code.
I know I didn't do anything wrong. wish Twitter would stop doing this.
Getting tired of using my minutes.
