    I literally just had this problem earlier. I think twitter is setting up a certain time limit to unlock your account after you reset your password.

    I was resetting so many times with a huge account of mine and it wouldn't unlock. So i waited an hour and it got unlocked.

    (Just my experience)

    Most likely a glitch. I just got my account unlocked and after I retweeted something it got locked again.

    Same thing happened to about 3 of my accounts. I was resetting my password very often as well, because I kept getting locked out. Now my password resets, but it still won't let me tweet.. All of my accounts are 2.5+ years old and are all 115k + I was tweeting from one major account, and retweeting on all of the rest. About 5 others. Anyone who was also locked out have any updates?

    This is for anyone else out there who may be going through this and having a mini panic attack. All 3 of my accounts that were locked all just went back to normal at the same time I think, and I can use them again like normal. They were all locked at different times, and I tried unlocking them about 20 minutes apart each. So my advice:

    Just do the password reset like you normally do, even though your account is still locked. Lol, I was panicking and did the reset about 5 times each. Probably not necessary. But yeah, do the reset like normal, and then just wait it out. I read that someone said their account was unlocked in an hour. Mine took about 3.5 hours to unlock after I did the reset. If this information helps anyone, 2 of my accounts were locked for 15 hours before I realized they were locked, and one was locked for less than an hour.

    I'm not quite sure what has been triggering my locks, as I do follow aggressively, as well as tweeting and retweeting aggressively, but I would say that on my end it was probably the spam like tweeting and retweeting that I was doing, that triggered things. Because I haven't done any follows in over 36 hours if not more.

    Again, I really hope this helps to save anyone from the sheer terror that I experienced. Haha

    I don't think this is related to any bot but aggressive activity will cause the locking. I'm quite sure of that.
    But I'd like to know if anyone who doesn't get it at all with tonnes of follow/unfollow etc per day.

    Same problem for me. Twitter has been locking it then I do the password reset with nothing happening. Hours later though I am getting the email come through saying my account has been locked when they havent even unlocked it in the first place. Can anyone confirm whether clearing the cookies works?

    Thanks

    It's probably a glitch. Same exact thing happened to me a few weeks ago and again yesterday. All you can do is wait for them to fix it.

    Dont try to access in it for 72 hours. After that make it phone verified. Hope this problem will be solved.

    One of my accounts that I was just able to use surprise surprise has just been locked again even after deleting cookies and everything. Best to leave a few days I guess. Hopefully is just a glitch.

    Yup, same thing with me, 3 of my accounts that I was able to use, locked up again.. Funny thing is. I didn't even tweet or do anything from them. I'm seriously hoping this is a glitch as well.

    Does the phone verification keep you in the clear?

    Hmm, hopefully it's just a glitch then, if you said the same thing happened to you a few weeks ago. When did things go back to normal for you?
