    Anyone else notice this as of five hours ago?

    Links posted manually work but not when posted with SocialOomph.

    *UPDATE*

    It appears unverified Twitters are blocked from automation.

    "Posting status update unsuccessful. Twitter said: This request looks like it might be automated. To protect our users from spam and other malicious activity, we can't complete this action right now. Please try again later. (226)"

    Posting via Buffer works so this seems isolated to SocialOomph.

    I haven't been able to post DMs with links for ages, but hadn't spotted ordinary postings through SocialOomph with links are now being blocked too.

    What I HAVE noticed is that since 10th July it seems to be impossible to use the "Approve New Following" feature in SocialOomph. It lets you select approved and record decisions, and SocialOomph say they get a success code back from Twitter, but I know none of those selected are actually being added by Twitter. In the past 4 days I have followed around 4,000 across 35 Twitter accounts (none of which are approaching technical limits) and not a single one has been added by Twitter even though SocialOomph has received the success codes. All the accounts are still live, not suspended. They have different e-mail addresses and are not recognized by Twitter as being linked, so this looks like a universal problem not a dig at me by Twitter.

    Is anybody else suffering this, and also is this just limited to SocialOomph or is it happening in other automated systems too?
