Twitter bot restricted from performing write actions

    I have created a twitter bot which searches a certain hashtag for at most 10 results and replies to each result and in between each reply sleeps for a random time of between 10 seconds to 3 minutes. This bot at the end sleeps for a random time of between 15 minutes to an hour and runs again. I manage to run it around 3-4 times before it is flagged by twitter and given the status restricted from performing write actions.

    What could be causing this as I don't exceed the Twitter rate limits and sleeping times are random?

    Any help would be appreciated. I'm using Tweepy if that's helpful for the bot.
