    Wow… were you able to get your account back? And if so, will you have all of your data (followers/people you followed/tweets) back too?

    I have just had my account suspended 3 days prior to an election.

    My posts were to some degree repetitious but they were a political
    message which would reach different demographics at different times of
    the day across the under hashtags.

    If you check the spam act political communication is exempt of the spam act.

    There were no monies derived from the tweets. About 10-20 per day.
    There was no personal attacks and many tweets that were @ were
    television programs.

    It also appears Twitter is removing posts with hyperlinks to
    particular websites which may impact powerful lobby groups in the US. So
    much for free speech.

    Meanwhile the porn spam bots continue under the same hashtag along
    with the some vial language poster with the most vitriol of language.

    Id say I was reported by someone with enough sway to have me canned 2 days prior the election.

    I cant see Twitter surviving under this reporting model. Business will need several accounts to prevent suspension.

    Now that Twitter are implementing advertising it will only take one
    of the other big dotcoms to release and improved version before complete
    collapse.

    If I were business I wouldn’t invest the time with such volatility in the reporting procedure.

    It appears someone with power has had me suspended at a whim. There
    is also organised pack trolls running around having Twitter suspend
    accounts.

    3 accounts on different days for different purposes, another to store backed up tweets that wont be suspended.

    I cant see Twitter sustaining long term business. Their policy is too willy nilly.

    Its a lot to lose.

    Hi Aaron Lee Glad I Found Your Blog! Thanks For The Great Info.

    My Twitter Account Won’t Work I Can’t Log in? I Can’t Even Tell If I A Suspended (Can’t Think WHY I Would Be? I Do Not Do Anything Against The Rules That I Know Of On Twitter) But Incase I Accidentally made Some Sort of Mistake & Because There Is No Where Else To Actially MAKE Any requests For help On Twitter I Filed 2 Tickets & It’s Been 2 Days No One Has Replied From Twitter? So Bummed.

    Your Info. Was Very Helpful! How Long Was It Before Twitter responded To You & Your Account Was Unsuspended Restored?

    I Didn’t Want To Make Another Account Incase They Would Think That Is A Breach Of Some Rule?

    I Can’t See My Account At All Or Tweet To Anyone To Ack Them To Help Me? There is No Place To See Your suspention Or Your Status Anymore?
    I Would Love To Tweet To One Of Those 2 People You Mentioned But I Can’t tweet To Anyone.
    I Clicked The Follow You Sign On This Page But again My Account Doesn’t Seem To Work – If It Ever Comes Back Up I Will Follow You You Are Great With Information!

    Thank You Again
    If Possible Could You Reply To The Question On How Long

    Best Regards
    SS

    Hope that twitter will take action for this.

  • Flynn Rin

    Same, because the account where using is suspended. @ItsMeMefrin
    But don’t worry, it will back to normal. :)

  • Mr. Big Boy

    When this happened to me recently and I was looking up information on it, I came across a wise tip from a commenter: don’t rely too heavily on a resource like Twitter that is outside of your control. Their haphazard suspensions are VERY disruptive and unnerving.

    Totally agree with you that annoying users will cause them to search for and find the “next big thing”.

  • Mr. Big Boy

    When accounts are unsuspended, the data show up shortly after (within a few hours).

  • Mr. Big Boy

    For anyone who finds this, I share my recent encounter with the Twitter police here: http://bit.ly/s_tpif Essentially, you’ll be shown a generic boilerplate form that has you agree to be good then they let you back in. First time should be right away but the second time they unjustly suspended my account it a little over 24 hours from the time I discovered the suspension.

  • wordsdontmatter

    what is it, if we type fast or a lot of tweets per minute? is has nothing to do with others, i imagine, as long as u do not say anything bad, right? I type fast and was having fun as a news story was building, and there was a fight between greenwald and some guy whining, so i responded to a couple of his whines but just with links to new news stories by guardian.

    its my second time as the first one was a few mins so i guess i have to wait. no worries, i could make a new one if i had too and i like following more than followers but i had 5 lost souls come to me. was kind of fun..

  • Mr. Big Boy

    The way I see it, Twitter wants to keep the spammers and other “gamers” out of their system so that real human users can have a more enjoyable experience. The problem is, they haven’t yet found a way to accurately identify the abusers so they view everybody as guilty, ban haphazardly, and force you to reach out to them and beg to be let back in – believing that only the honest users will do so (the “gamers” will just create new accounts). In short, it’s a major nuisance for those of us who are counting on Twitter’s service to build relationships for our brands to be suddenly suspended, or as I call it, to have your account “impounded”.

  • Daniel B. D. Murrey

    Twitter has a major problem with spam blocking still. This could be solved if they discounted “Block and Report as spam” submissions from users who have never been mentioned or messaged by the user they are trying to report. It is not actually spam if they’ve never tweeted you, so quit being a douche.

    I have been spam blocked several times by people who disagree with me politically.

    Both down for now.

  • Connie L. Wells

    Yeah I was in twitter when they suspended me. I have no clue as to why? I was very upset and wanted to get a hold of the support desk and scream and yell. They conviently make it very difficult to navigate to get any kind of assistance! I read your blog and it has helped me calm down! LOL! I plan on working with them nice to get my account reopened. Its going to take some time. I had a lot of followers too! :( Oh well life goes on. Thanks for having this site for others to go to so they like me won’t feel all alone.
