    HI Everyone,

    I'm promoting CR adult offers with twitter.

    for this porpuose I'm redirecting a domain masked with CR offers.

    did anyone else is expieriencing or ever experienced the same?

    Your domain was reported and it got blacklisted. If you tweet with that domain, you'll get the warning message. The solution is pretty simple: you'll need a new domain to make the redirect.

    Hi HOneybird and thanks for your reply.

    weird thing is that if I click on the domain via the BIO profile it works fine.

    I've now created a subdomain with the same domain and it seems to be working fine.

    It seems, they only blocked the exact url and not the domain itself.

    Have you tried the random character trick, when you put a quotation mark at the end of the url and any random string after that?
    Like this:
    yourdomain.com/?werw6gb3rj
    yourdomain.com/?1
    yourdomain.com/?a

    This should work too, if subdomains work. Putting a random string at the end of the url has the advantage, that you don't tweet the same url again and again.

    I have been doing the random parameter trick for months.
    I add a random parameter + a random value as mysite.com/?gk=56832 or mysite.com/?yp=34871
    all my links are banned for one of my domains (i checked by clicking a random dozen of them)
    so, it seems they may ban the whole domain name.
    Some other DN using the same trick are still alive.

    Yes, it appears they do both. I only experienced that they ban the domains all together. But as we can see from OP's example, there are cases, when they ban exact urls and not the whole domain, in that case the random string or the subdomain trick works.

    The random paramenter trick didn't work for me, I've resolved creating a subdomain.

    Ok this is getting very annoying. After a day or two, they ban the subdomains as well. How you guys promote offers usually?

    - shortned url get banned (usually you can't even post them - Error 226: This request looks like it might be automated.)
    - domains and subdomains get banned as well

    Out of curiosity I was checking competitors and they promote their offers with the same link (shortned with bit.ly)
    over and over posting offers more than 20 times a day, example: WHATC OUT ITS NSWF https://twitter.com/cnyyk1

    He doesn't even bother changing the tweet text, same over and over with dfiferent pics.

    Thanks in advance

    Now i'm taking a little pause, because i'm kinda busy with some offline stuff, but before i used one domain per account. I posted around 75-150 tweets per day, although i wasn't posting the same links over and over again, i posted urls to different pages on the same domain, but never mixed the domains between accounts. I used around 100-120 domains total and Twitter blacklisted only two domains throughout the almost 1 year since i'm doing this.

    Yeah that's what I'm doing, 1 domain for each account/offer

    What's on your domains? Maybe Twitter recognizes something, a pattern (e.g. same offers?) which can link your not (yet) banned domains to the banned ones.

    Have you tried it with accounts, which you haven't used before? I can imagine, if a domain gets banned on an account, that account will receive a flag and any domain what you post after that with that account, will be closely examined by Twitter, hence the chance to get them banned too increases.

    It's mere speculation, but i'm pretty much out of ideas.

    Thanks again...

    Haven't tried the same link with another account . will test it.

    Update: I'm now trying posting the same link shortened with bit.ly (all bit.ly links different pointing to the same domain)

    http://bit.ly/2d0o111
    http://bit.ly/2d0o222
    http://bit.ly/2d0o333....etc

    If this doesn't work either I wanna try shorthening the same link with different services. do you know by any chance any website that does it?

    I used to have one but can't find it anymore.

    Bit.ly was the Twitter's very own shortener not too long ago and i'm pretty sure, that Twitter still doesn't have any issues with bit.ly itself, but the sites where the shortened urls point to, so from this point of view, it doesn't really matter, if you post different bit.ly urls, which lead to the same site. Twitter follows the redirect, so the other thing - shortening with multiple services - won't do a thing either and the result will be the same, i think. Nevertheless you can try and see for yourself, if you haven't yet already. :)

    I remember two sites like that, what you're asking. The first one i used many years ago and when i last checked, it didn't work anymore. Not too long ago (a couple months) a BHW member made a site with maybe 20 shorteners, that worked when i tried, but i don't remember what was the site unfortunately.

    Here's one though, but only 5 shorteners are working out of the claimed 90: http://ninjaseotools.com/bulk-url-shortener-tool.php

    Thanks,

    Strangely some bit.ly link work fine while others give the malicious website error.

    I believe shortly all of them will stop working.

    I really don't know what is wrong.

    I've created a new account last week, posting offers with a new domain (1 week old)

    And is starting behaving badly as well.

    I think it's very random and nonsense, I wonder how this accoutn gets away with it: ( warning: NSFW)

    https://twitter.com/BigBreastPics

    Same link over and over, account open since 2013

    He doesn't even bother shortening the CR offer or use a domain for redicrecting.
