    Hello,

    The last 2 weeks one of my twitter accounts started to get more and more phone locks.
    So the account has around 2k Follower and is in the Porn niche, i use Massplanner for following/unfollowing and retweeting, i tweet 2 to 3 times a day through tumblr using IFTTT.
    Since a few days i've been getting more and more phone locks each day. Sometimes its even 2 times a day. My follower / Unfollow settings arent that aggressive as well

    Following 225 - 300 ~
    Following 15 to 28 per Operation and waiting 30 to 82 Minutes before new Operation
    Unfollowing is 180 to 290 per day with 20 to 40 per Operation

    So what could be the reason my account keeps getting phone locked? I use more than 1 Acc on the private Proxy i use, but the other acc's associated with the Account only get the regular 2 Phone Locks and Password change notification.

    Oh and a other question i have : If i keep getting so many phone locks, is the chance increasing that the account is gonna get banned soon?

    Any help is appreciated!

    kind regards

    Tweeting can trigger phone locks too. Complete the re-verification requests on the account, if there's any at the moment and try that you don't tweet for a day. If you already completed the initial verification requests, you won't get locked again. What you can do is stop tweeting with that account and only follow/unfollow, that won't trigger further phone locks.

    When an account is new and you follow and tweet too even double locks are not rare, you get locked once for following and once for tweeting. You solve one lock, you log back into the account and you're locked again. Twitter is a funny bird. :)

    Hey!
    Thanks for the reply. I completly agree with you. It can be weird and annoying lol. It's just weird that 4 Acc's have the same exact settings with tweeting but they dont get a lock while the other accounts do get a lock, I guess im gonna have to live with fact that i have to unlock my accounts everyday or ill just stick to following without tweeting. Would you say that your chances are higher to get banned the more phone locks you get?

    I can't say for sure, because i try to avoid phone locks as much as i can, so i only get the initial ones, what every account gets when it's new.

    Yea, these locks because of tweeting seem quite random and don't affect every acc, the same is true for the biweekly suspension waves, when they hit only a percentage of your accs, but never all. Weird, that's for sure. I'm yet to find an explanation. I guess we need to live with this and don't pay too much attention to it. When an account gets locked every time you tweet, i guess you need to use a different one, when an account gets suspended, we replace it, nothing else we can do, i'm afraid.
