    Hi Guys

    Anyone had any accounts suspended recently. I only have a handful of old and very reliable accounts. They have been active for a long time with no problem what so ever however today they all got suspended. Below is an email I had from one of the accounts and was wondering what is the best way around it going forward? I only have five accounts. I just find it strange how they have been good for so long yet today this happens. I have appealed them all so will wait for a reply in a few days however not sure what is the best thing to do going forward. Email below from one of my accounts. This has been suspended again by the way even though I have not touched it.

    Hello,

    We've unsuspended your account; sorry for the inconvenience. Please note that it may take an hour or so for your follower and following numbers to return to normal.

    Twitter has automated systems that find and remove multiple automated spam accounts in bulk. Unfortunately, it looks like your account got caught up in one of these spam groups by mistake.

    Please do not respond to this email as replies will not be monitored.

    Guys anyone getting this at all? I have since had emails from twitter saying my accounts have now been permanently suspended for repeat violations. Seriously wtf like. I have barely used them and these accounts I have had for years. Anyone know why this may be happening?

    Devastated fair play. Just like that my twitter promoting is over. Have over 500,000 followers on 5 accounts that have spent years building up and they are gone just like that.

    @damage83 - It has been said many times before that Twitter is dead.. This time it seems more serious than prior warnings.

    I have lost about 30 Acct over the last few wks. No luck on appeal.

    fwiw - I have found large accts are much safer than smaller accts, large meaning +50K followers.

    I struggle on, but I am not looking to put lost more time into Twitter marketing.

    Best,

    Risk

    Cheers for the reply. Does seem to be that they are getting hard on people now. Just hard to take for me because I have done the same thing daily for the last few years. These are very old accounts that I have always had and only a handful of them. All over 50k followers too :(

    What types of activities were you doing on the accounts? Also, were they on proxies?

    Just following and sending direct messages to new followers. I personally think they have linked them together and therefore just got tough on me and closed them. I don't use proxies on them. Have never needed to as there is only 5 accounts that I use. It is not like I am spamming to death but like I said they are obviously getting harder. No chance getting them back now either so guess there is no point speculating.

    Tonight lost all my accs, around 350. By the way this also happened last year, but May 08-09. Anyway I'm done here. Just not worth the effort anymore. But it was a nice run, 2 years+ made some nice cash. Now it's time to move on :)

    Same story as OP, 5 minutes ago my 5 oldest and most reliable accounts got hit all together. And the funny thing is, I had stopped any spamming activities with them a week ago, getting ultra safe with them. Obviously that was not enough, and Twitter cought up on them.
    Got my small accounts intact, but I am not quite sure how much will they survive this war. Twitter is getting the upper hand, and to be honest, I don't feel like it is worth it anymore. Those accounts were making me $200/month, and I can think of a better way to make this money. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

    What do you consider to be ultra safe?

    Were those terminated accounts botted or built up by hand?

    I stopped any following on them, continued to unfollow only 150/day. Stopped posting my links extensively, only 5 tweets a day gif + link, while started retweeting random accounts, started posting random tweets with no link, just to simulate more human behavior. Prior to that I was following/unfollowing 500-600/day while posting 30 tweets with my links (along with some nice gifs). Keep in mind, these were 2 year old accounts, all had 60K - 100K followers. Although verified with real SIMs, I was never getting phone verification on them, so I thought my actions were safe. Maybe my biggest mistake was running them all on one proxy, should have split them up so they don't get hit together.

    I've built them up and grown them manually, but in the last 6 months I used Mass planner to manage them. No matter, it is not the bot used that got them banned, it is more the actions they were doing. Posting 30 tweets a day of different gifs, but all with the same link, has been working for them for nearly 2 years, but suddenly Twitter decided that it is no longer acceptable.

    Looks like Social Media Virtual Assistants (SMVA) will be in higher demand soon, lol.
