    Hello,

    I have had my twitter accounts locked because my software kept following people repeatedly when it reached its limit. Now its been two days and I still cant follow.

    Has anybody else has this issue?


    How long will my accounts be blocked for following?

    try unfollowing maybe lets you follow more after, but why do you need to follo9w so many people?
    I always unfollow the ones who don;'t fallow back.
    Good Luck!

    I've never experienced this before.

    If you haven't received any sort of warning email from twitter, are you sure you haven't just hit a follow limit? Try unfollowing a few people then see if you're able to follow people again.

    What's your following:followers ratio looking like?

    Tried unfollowing, and it seems to work fine. following is where im having the issue. No warning email from twitter whatsoever just the generic "you've reached your follow limit and can't follow anymore people at this time."

    I tried to manually post a tweet and I got this message "

    Check the account´s email and you will see a Twitter email saying your account has been locked, change password and you will be fine in a few minutes. It has happened 3 times to me.

    Getting the same problem. Just reset your password like someone said ITT and you'll be fine.
