    Hi guys, I'm having this problem with my accoun now: Your account may not be allowed to perform this action.

    I can't retweet, I can't favorite and I can't tweet. Some actions only pass through the cellphone app,

    I have almost 300k followers in this account. Been following 950 people per day for years now and never had an issue, the account is 4 years old. Did they limit my account or something? Never happened before to me.

    My account is 100% clean, the only thing it does is that it follows and unfollows a lot daily, but never post links or spammy stuff. I'm not sure if I could contact support for this, is really fishy

    It's been 4 days like that, the only thing I can imagine is that either it was reported like you mention or they tweaked something to the following limits. With this account I can follow 950 almost in bulk, with other accounts I get banned passing 100, so something could've changed too.

    So then don't follow 950 people anymore. Its pretty simple. I don't even know why people ask shit like this.

    I would say following 950 persons at once looks shady :)
    I've already be ban for this, follow, unfollow automatically for day and I got the same thing.

    I don't wanna be rude, but you're in a blackhat forum and you ask why people follow people? Seriously?

    Like I said been doing this for years and no problem, last year I was following 12,000 persons per day, in the days of the twitter glitch, then lowered to 950, never had an issue, also there's a lot of people who has 100k's of followers and are doing the same with no issue at all.

    Nothing actually, I'm not sure if it's the following limits, because saturday and sunday I didn't follow anyone or unfollow and still got blocked, it's important to figure it out to set new limits. I'm suspecting it may be turning into what is instagram that has hourly limits

    maybe you account is been ghosted and this can fix that

    How can I confirm it was ghosted? I searched the account with two other accounts and it appears immediately, also when I tweet on a trending topic I charted in top tweets automatically this weekend, from what I now youwhen you are ghosted both things can't happen.

    The weirdest thing is in the web I can only tweet stuff with a picture, if its pure text it blocks me, also in the cel app I can do everything just there, except retweet. I'm gonna stop my activity for 2 or 3 days, but I'm starting to think it may be an specific error, but I'm not sure to contact support cause I've been aggressively following for years now. What do you think?

    Ghosting does not means that your account wont appear in result.
    I just named it as Ghosting one of my friend faced this.
    He was able to post Tweets with Images, But no Tweets, Retweets, Follow, Unfollow nothing.

    He just changed the password of the accounts and it went normal now..
    Actually he was using SNAP as i know.. that caused that as twitter was sending messages that request being made are from automated bots

    I removed all the apps of pages like manageflitter and justunfollow, those apps are sending automatic messages, I know because I'm receiving some messages from lots of users, so gotta be careful with apps in this case, also I'm reducing followings from 950 to 850 since we don't know what changes they're making, If I know anything new I'll post it here.
