    I overspammed during my first days with TweetAttacks and now twitter has banned my URL. Basically, when i post my url in a tweet, I get banned a second later. It doesn't matter if I use a url shortening service. I even used a url shortening service for my stumbleupon version of the link and I was still banned.

    Anyone have this problem before? What should I do?

    You don't think they will see through that too?

    I would think a double-meta refresh would work, I don't think it's possible to see through that.

    For now, the 301 redirect is working. Let's hope it stays that way

    Get some people with 70k+ followers to retweet some of your tweets or tweet about your URL.

    There's no way huge authority accounts are getting banned for 1 tweet. It may install some 'twitter-trust' back into your URL that big accounts are tweeting about it.

    Also, how fast are you spamming?

    How many threads? wait and reply mode?

    If you have any spare domains just set up a page on them with an html redirect with a short pause on that domain. I use 5 seconds then it reloads and redirects to your banned domain. I use 6 spare domains so that gives me six links I can spin in the tweets...then basically they all arrive at different pages....then it redirects to my main page. Twitter only seem to check the first page the tweet lands on...not the final destination. Thats why I use a short redirect delay.

    Do you have other domains available? I agree with Islandman1010. That will be the easiest way for you now. And put some limits with using tweetattacks, it might also get broke or something by too much spamming.

    thats weird, you must be sending to many tweets from each account causing it to be flaged, (link listed as malware) are your accounts verified? i think if you get another domain the same thing will happen

    I didn't try that - I have another higher authority account that can post it.

    In the past, I blasted the URL way too much. But recently, with my redirect url, I only posted a couple tweets from each account and they were spaced out pretty well

    I'm not in the Twitter game, but i believe that if you buy a new domain and then you make a 301 redirect should works fine.

    If not try something like:

    New URL ---> Redirect to URL Shortner ---> Original URL

    So that Twitter should be able only to see the url shorter link (i believe).
