I work for a project that is analyzing twitter's suspension practices. We have noticed some very strange things recently. Many of you seem to think controlling follow/followback churn is the most important thing in preventing suspensions but it seems the problem is much deeper than that. I can't give too many details about our practices but here is what can be said: For every 100 accounts we create, about 90 will be suspended in less than 12 hours Each account is created with its own IP address, email address, picture, unique description and background picture Each account follows a completely different set of followers and will follow less than 50 people to start Each account tweets at least one or two things without a link, offer, or other "spammy" content Each account has its own location, timezone & browser signature Some accounts will respond to tweets As of recent, 90% of our accounts get suspended. A few months ago it was down to 10% suspensions and the accounts would last a few weeks. Either Twitter has picked up on some kind of pattern, or they are simply suspending now & asking questions later. Has anyone else seen similar results?
