    Hey everyone,

    I'm doing some expansion operations and opening up some more income streams so I want ahead and looked into twitter. I'd be posting a series of threads asking TweetAttacks and twitter related questions, hope no one minds. :D

    So first things that pops to mind. Twitter accounts get suspended all the time because of marketing. Getting back up and running is as simple as creating more accounts and getting more IPs. Now the issue is:

    1- Can't twitter just follow the link to your CPA Offer and have their staff send a simple complain to your CPA network? Fishing your CPA network details from your link isn't very hard and even if they don't fish anything, the network can still easily backtrace the link in question to a certain publisher. Now if I get twitter accounts banned, to hell with them, but my CPA network account banned and earnings forfeited? Now that's gonna be a big "ouch!". I don't think hiding referrers or anything like that would help now, nothing would stand against that kind of official complain I guess. Besides, it's easier ad more efficient for twitter. Is it better for them to keep banning accounts all day or just hit the marketer with something like a complain and set them back miles away?

    2- I'd be really interested to know what you do to avoid #1, if you do anything to avoid it. Would a "buffer" Web 2.0 or landing page standing between your aff link / website and twitter help? Do you use CPA Networks that just don't give a shit? Or do you use any other tactic to keep your vital accounts safe?

    Thanks a lot if you made it through here! :)

    i have been using twitter to make daily income for last 6-7 months and i have had multiple accounts banned due to mass following etc ( never for marketing anything ) , i have also wondered this question and i would have to say that it all depends on your network , the network i use doesnt mind that the traffic comes from twitter , CPA's+twitter=$ you are on the right track , just gotta work on the fine details , also another recommendation would be to build quality accounts , dont go the spaming route with twitter, it barley works

    It is unlikely that your network will ban you for this. Just make sure you are promoting offers that allow social traffic.

    Thanks a lot of the input! Only point of conflict I'd have with you is about the spamming route. Honestly, I do think a lot of people here are banking a lot with things like the "wait & reply" module with burn accounts that just serve the purpose. I think some members came forward with that info a while back. I'm not really looking for something sustainable as long as it works since I already have other more sustainable income streams and doing twitter on the side.


    You sure? Social Traffic despite how you actually get that social traffic? What if you spam the crap out of users using Wait & reply which I believe a lot of members do here?

    Thanks everyone.

    I really doubt Twitter will go to the trouble of tracking down your CPA offer and contacting the network, they have enough on their plate and will likely just ban your account.

    What would be likelier is 1 person who gets spammed and gets mad enough to track down the network and contact them. And I suppose just laws of probability say that if you spam enough people there will be at least 1 such person.

    Just be sure to not link cpa directly to twitter, make some site or landing page on your domain and from there potential customers can take action and referrer will be your domain, not twitter. Except banning twitter accounts nobody will ban nobody just like that; if is that easy competition could sent you out of the game easily, or you would make your competitors out.
