[Mar 29, 2012 4:00PM] Twitter suspended my account (@vineetdhanawat)
I joined twitter on April 1, 2010. Almost 2 years of Happily Tweeting. I’m not sure why / how, But my account was simply suspended. No warning / notification email as well!
At first i thought it to be mistake. Refreshed a couple of time, then did a logout-login, but all to my dismay. My account was really suspended.
Within minutes i was scanning through my mind for all the tweets i did in past 24 hours. Did i tweet a image violating copyright? Did i tweet something abusive? Nothing was going right. In my mind I was cursing Twitter for doing so.
Take away my Facebook if you want, I do not deserve to be banned from twitter! I opened Facebook and Google Plus. Felt odd.
A simple google search revealed that 1000s of account has been banned in past few months, associated with spam accounts. Every-time few users get involved in middle. With hope I clicked on Suspended Accounts for help. Immediately dropped a mail to support folks.
[Update – Mar 30, 2012 4:00PM] 24 Hours over. No Reply yet. Account still suspended.
[Update – Mar 31, 2012 3:00AM] Account restored. Everything seems to be working fine. No Emails though.
[Update – Apr 04, 2012 5:09AM] Finally an email response from twitter supportStuck in the same boat? Here’s What you should do
- Make sure you’ve read The Twitter Rules
- Email Support for Requesting a Review for Suspended Accounts. If you cannot submit, email them at [email protected]
- Check the Twitter status blog, the @spam account, and search the public tweet stream to see if there is a lot of account suspension activity
