    I've never seen this before. I created a new site, added a bunch of articles. There's only some amazon links in a couple of them. However, there's no amazon link or banner on the home page.

    Why is Twitter flagging my wordpress blog as containing malware? Has anyone been through this before?

    Using free downloaded premium themes or plugins is my guess.

    I'm using a paid theme from ThemeForest, and I'm only using 4 plugins (Yoast, GA, WP-Cache, etc).

    Thanks! It says my site is clean.

    Any chance you're using an expired domain? If so, perhaps the previous owner got it blacklisted.

    Are you using any URL shortener? It happened to me once..Its been a while, I don't remember. But if you're using untrusted shortener it will be blocked irrespective of your website content.

    Unfortunately, no it did not. It gave me a link describing the common issues.

    Completely clean.

    Thanks. I'll check it out.

    I used the full url.

    ____

    The one thing I will say is that I did post something from quora right before I added the url and I got a notification that said something like we believe your account is being automated. I don't know how that would trigger anything for the domain, but maybe it was just too much at once (profile pic + header + quora post).
