Do too many retweets cause suspensions?

    For my latest batch of Twitter bombing I have been promoting a rather provocative CPA offer for a product that hasn't actually been released yet. All my accounts got banned a lot quicker than normal (in only a few hours), although I made a reasonable amount in the time they were alive.

    I did a quick search for my product name on Twitter and to my surprise there were dozens and dozens of real people retweeting my spammy ad tweets. Some of them were ranting that it was a scam, but others were straight retweets with no editorializing. Perhaps telling their friends about this incredible free offer?

    So do excessive amounts of retweets cause you to get flagged and suspended more quickly?

    I would doubt that retweets alone would get you suspended, unless twitter thought that all or a lot of the accounts were linked to you, but it would certainly increase the chances you'll be reported for spamming.

    I think retweets might be something they are watching closely and have seen it reported on a few other places. We have to remember the people at twitter aren't stupid and if they have concerns about pesky little critters like us trying to take advantage of their cute little site then they are going to do something to try and stop it.

    Lets face it if someone was doing it to our sites we'd try and stop em, correct? Just need to be a bit more careful and mix it up a bit
