    I work on the computer.
    Tokyo, Japan
    I create a new Twitter account at a catch-all domain I have.

    I go there and manually click on the confirmation links and enter all the information.

    Then I try to post from the API using trends like #nowplaying and the tweets won't show up in these trends!

    Does anyone know about any restrictions regarding this on Twitter? Or, do you know if I have to wait a certain time period before account confirmation and API tweeting? Or, does it have something to do with the fact that I am using a weird domain name as my e-mail address?

    Thanks for any help!

    for you email you could use an gmail for your address and just add . or ... once you have a gmail address register no matter if you add 50..... you will still get to use the same email address and have it veryfied for each twitter account also try to use a difernt IP or just hit up a internet caffe or depending were you at go to a coffe shop like starbucks and create 10 accounts for each IP and then go to run cmd release ip and get a new one and start all over again hope this helps

    Twitter will rarely let you publish to the public time line on a trending topic unless your account has positively exhibited several things:

    1) your account age is > 1 day
    2) your tweet rate is consistent over time (like 5 a day)
    3) not all your tweets have a URL in them
    4) the originating IP address used during account creation does not have ANY other accounts created from the same IP in < 24 hours
    5) you have a complete profile (this also means a profile image)
    6) you follow less people then people following you
    7) you do not churn followership
    8) you do not always use hash tags which are actually current/historical topics
    9) you do not use hash tags that are not relative to your content
    10) you have never been blocked or reported

    11) KEY POINT! you have a history of using several IP addresses in several days.

    Now comes the troll responses....but before you do//..I have managed thousands of followers and accounts in twitter all over API and registered apps, i have had hundreds of accounts blocked, banned, silenced and also.....dum dum dum restored. I am not citing policy from them, simply citing what I have modeled over about 10 months of some pretty serious integration.

    the list above is my personal checklist of items i make sure I have exhibited over time, before i begin my aff link plugging and traffic shaping strategies. Aging accounts is becoming critical these days. fresh accounts are typically silenced by many services, a harsh strategy, but it has been effective.

    The age or relevance of a registered email account is important to battle automation from organizations like Twitter, amazon, ebay/paypal....etc. Fraud scrubbing 101 now seems to be "can we find anything online about this email address/identity that has any correlation to what has been provided? like city, state, etc. If not, either deny or for a time being silence output.

    Patience is what will distinguish you.

    one last point, twitter analyzes your activity on a weekly basis or a monthly basis depending on what your activity is. consider that, a real user also has no idea if they are on the public timeline for several days, they are typically ignorant when it comes to anything online. a few complaints about "hey, i can't find my tweets on search" out weighs in their idiot heads the spam domination that accounts for easily 80% of all tweets on twitter. I pity the fool who gave them money to say alive.

    Very good info from your experiences with twitter. This is what I like to see most of all. Thanks for your insight. Also, I enjoyed your disclaimer to those that like to ride the trollocoasters.

    Kind Regards,
