    It's starting to become a bit of a problem.

    Twitter Account 1:
    Following: 346
    Followers: 782

    Only following 25 people a day.... suspended.

    Do you feel an account can be easily banned by putting the same name as the person the account is tweeting news about?
    As opposed to putting it as <name> News?

    It wasn't down to aggressive following, so not sure what their problem is. It's like any account I set up and try to act White Hat with is suspended.

    All I was doing with that account is tweeting news around every 6 hours and I had more followers than I had following. Not putting 'News' in the name is the only thing I can think of.

    Were you using a proxy? How were you automating your posts? about 30% of my accounts get suspended from a sample size of 400+

    I may know why they were being suspended - because I had the name of the account as the actual person I was tweeting about.

    So I had, for example, David Beckham instead of 'David Beckham News' - since I changed that there hasn't been the suspensions that there was. Can only assume Twitter thought I was trying to pass it off as the real person and so suspended it.

    It wasn't anything to do with following/unfollowing as Twitter now give us a 2nd chance if that's the case.

    That is a weird and unexpected way to get flagged. I'll have to test this

    Twitter went harsher about suspending accounts nowadays.

    How many tweets did you have? If you don't tweet and just follow your account will also get flagged.
