What is up with that? I haven't been locked out yet but I know what you are saying. There was a guy bragging about inventing a program and seeks out post with follow and retweet post and follows and retweets for him.

Also there have been several sweeps I've tried to enter with retweeting and Twitter won't allow it, saying it looks like an automated tweet.

that's just about the only tweets hubby does.. and he got blocked.. at least that's the only type he did on a daily basis.

I have had Twitters suspensions also - a lot of them.
There is another link for Twitter suspensions that I started awhile ago.
Quite frustrating!
I think it's quite sad that there is no one to talk with at Twitter.
Responses have all been so vague.

Yes it ticks me off that many can tweet like crazy with no problem.
And I get singled out - especially when I am not doing anything underhanded.

There are a few sites that automatically lock my account.
Giveaway Guy and Mythical giveaways (not sure I said that last one right).

My solution is to leave more time between tweets - maybe 10 minutes.
And to send out some personal tweets.
So far that has been working.

Hope this works out for everyone.

I don't think that has anything to do with it.

Think I was too hasty in saying this.
Maybe tweets just for Amazon seem automated to Twitter.

Also check your Twitter apps to see who has permission to tweet for you.
Mine shows giveaway tools, Gleam & Klout.

I'm thinking it's related to any that you click "tweet" and it gets done w/o you doing anything.. versus those that you click "tweet" and a box pops up with the tweet your are supposed to tweet and you physically click on the tweet.

Amazon does not come up with the box.. the same with lots of gleam or that type ...

I've heard that also.
Gleam is notorious for this.

For those who have been having Twitter suspensions - do you do any non giveaway tweets?
I've heard that makes us not look so automated.
I do maybe 6 a day now.

No, all mine are giveaways. Guess I better find something to start tweeting about.



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

I send personal tweets to a couple of friends each day.
Thinking that is now a necessity.
And I think once you have had several suspensions Twitter keeps a really close eye on you.

Do not think I will ever be able to tweet the way I used to - sometimes one after the other.

Hmm, I wonder why I never signed up for it. Maybe I have enough other things to annoy me?
