Why is my Twitter Account Suspended?

Amarnath Prabhakar March 1, 2013 0

There are many things you can do to get your Twitter account suspended. Twitter has some important policies that lays the need for etiquette and behaviour among the twitter people a.k.a tweeple.

The main reasons why your twitter account is suspended can be one or more of the following

- You are a Spammer

You are inadvertently spamming people with content that may or may not be useful to the people. You should not send the same link to many people over and over again. Your tenure with twitter does not matter here, once you are considered a spammer your account gets suspended.

- You are sharing flagged stuff

You have been posting tweets that are not allowed on twitter such as porn, gore or violence. Another reason can be that you have been blocked by many people who were once your followers.

- You are mass following or unfollowing

It is against twitter terms of service to follow and unfollow people by the masses to gain attention or increase your fan base. Quite naturally only a bot can mass follow or unfollow. Also, there is a limit to the number of people you can follow on a single day.

- Creating Multiple Accounts

Having multiple twitter accounts is against the policy on paper still I am aware of many people having multiple accounts and operating it without any issue. It is always better to stay on this side of the firing range, have one account and if you feel there is a need for more accounts you can always raise a support ticket to get clearance for additional accounts.

Alright now, you had indulged in any of the above listed practices and you’ve got your twitter account suspended. Is there any way to get it revoked or do you have to create another acccount? There definitely is a way to contest a twitter account suspension, follow the steps the article provides and have your fingers crossed.
