    You must do some tests, try tweets without links and try to don t use direct link to cpa offers. I didn t hear about an update.

    this is old... if ratio of posted links / clicked links is too high they get tagged as spammy and are banned also twitter follows shortners to see the end of redirect :)
    my way:
    use short url -> my url -> destination
    and my url filters twitters bots and sends them to a random google page and the rest to the destination :) problem fixed

    Every URL gets banned on twitter eventually. You gotta use many different domains, shorteners and random variables added to your links to keep the traffic going without loosing all your accounts in a minute.

    Twitter's changed its policies around accounts it seems - definitely tougher validation now.

    I'd also appreciate that, or just a hint how to do that - like twitter bot's user-agent or something to identify him, I can do the rest.
    Thanks.

    i Google some requests, and i found that about twitter crawler- useragent:

    the name : Twitterbot/1.0

    Twitter's URL Fetcher : SpiderDuck

    Twitterbot/1.0
    199.59.149.164 -> spiderduck01.dmz1.twitter.com
    199.59.149.165 -> spiderduck02.dmz1.twitter.com
    199.59.149.166 -> spiderduck03.dmz1.twitter.com

    During my search i found a funny twitter profil :
    name= @4040404040404
    It provide user agent from a link on each tweet.
    Visit this user, then click the url inside a tweet, a 404 redirect page will open . You wait it go back to twitter. Next a tweet will appear with your own user agent.
    But, the most important is when you wait, the next tweet will come with Twitterbot/1.0 user agent.

    Then i think to redirect Twitter user agent with .htaccess:

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^Twitterbot
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://redirecturl/

    But! i m not sur if it s right. If someone could help! Thanks!

    ok, i will try to explain (english is not my primary language),

    The idea is to know how twitter could know if your link in tweets are spams.
    Same as search engine, it use spider-crawler. this could help twitter to index tweets, in other words, each time you' re posting a tweet, a spider visit it and, if there's a link, it follow your link.
    So it s possible to think if twitter spider find and visit a link which is too much repeat, it will consider: this link is a spam! then it will blacklist it , and ban.
    This happend when you are posting direct link from some cpa network offers.

    Then, what's the deal? A solution could be to redirect twitter spider to another page when it visit your link.
    Well, as i said in my previous post, the twitter spider name is : Twitterbot.
    There's some some functions that you can insert in your website page to do a redirection. This function could be written in html, in php, in javascript and with an .htaccess file.
    Here i tried to give a solution with an .htaccess. Just create a file with this name, .htaccess, and insert this few lines. Just replace redirecturl with your link you want to redirect Twitterbot. Then import this file in your server.

    Hope this is better for you now ...
