    Hey,

    I just got my first ban from twitter because I imported 3000 email addresses to my account and my following list hit 2359. lol. But, I wanna get back that account or is it possible to register another one with that same username?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    You can try to contact them and play dumb like you didn't know the limitations. But with numbers like that done all at once, it's doubtful you'll recover your account.

    It's always best to use a LARGE number of accounts to lower your exposure. That way a ban here and there doesn't really hurt you. :)

    Send a tweet to @Dino over there and ask him if they will give it back to you.

    Your best bet is to get a hold of them and be like "I signed up for one of those auto twitter followers web sites i didn't know what they were doing" If your lucky they might give it back to you. But your should have known better then that. Read the terms and learn the right way to do stuff or you will keep getting the same results.

    Well if you can recover that account your best bet going forward is to keep that account within Twitter's daily limits, and retweet your messages from an army of smaller accounts. This way you can keep your WH account and still be aggressive with following/unfollowing and advertising. :)

    Yea that would be best. So, I got banned because of a shit method I found in a DP e-book. I'll never download DP product again. :p

    Thanks

    my advice is to buy (or make) a ton and don't care if they get banned. i get accounts banned almost everyday. i got my personal account banned for no reason so twitter will ban for no reason sometimes. i have 100's of twitter accounts and go through the list until i'm done and then get some more.
