    My twitter just got suspended due to suspicious activity. Had a little over 13k followers and I never spammed any affiliate link. The only thing I did was to remove people who didn't follow me and add more.

    WTF !! lol..muthafukas!
    Will the suspension get removed eventually??

    This is beginning to sound like an automated suspension....

    IF you wern't sending spam tweets
    IF you only have the one account active

    The most likely reason would be that your following people that are in a "twitter circle" built for spamming. Many times if you follow them, and they follow you, the Twitter automation will roll your account up as part of the ring (particularily if you've retweeted or follow friday'd them).

    So, if you havn't been using the account to spam and its your active account (no other accounts from your ip, well, the wife/gf's account is okay) email them and see what's up. It's taken them some time in the past but they have been good at reviews of these actions.

    You got banned for massive unfollowing, I'd be willing to bet on it.

    There was a article someone posted about this floating around here earlier stating that twitter was cracking down and suspending accounts and unfollowing users to make room to follow new users was one of the listed activities that will get you suspended.

    I am 99% sure that there is a bot called spamsam that follows people who have lots of followers such as Twitter and TheEllenShow. If you follow him, you're banned. I THINK.

    I unfollowed around 300 users..Then I retweeted and got around 700 new followings. Damn hummingbird couldn't just limit my activity :D

    I used to only follow the users from 1 guy who is doing the same niche. He's doing the exact same thing and got 24k followers.

    I have two accounts both got wiped out but lucky for me they were relatively new only had about 1000 followers on each, but no problem I will just open four new ones and keep 2 ready to go just in case they get binned as well.

    I think My seasoned account with over 2000 followers just jumped in value ;)

    Sorry to hear you got banned, like others have said, try mailing them and plead your case.

    see they dont care about you posting links. thats what your twitter is for. but with aggressive following and unfollowing you WILL get banned. And im sure that is the reason they are going to tell you. same thing happened to me and she said it wasnt for link spamming it was simply for aggressive following and unfollowing.

    Stop using automated software....follow and unfollow manually, it's more natural to do that anyways.....

    Especially with NEW accounts. Once you hit 2000 followers there's no need to "Un"follow anyone anymore....just follow the twitterbrick road ;)

    Email them, i saved some accs this way.
    And i'v been wanting to ask this for a long time - how do you manage to have let's say 10-15 accounts on the same ip ? Isn't that suspicious ? If i just register the accounts from different ips and then manage them all from the same ip will i get banned?
