Why Twitter suspended my account



  • 1 For spammy behavior

    Twitter may temporarily or permanently suspend your account if it notices spammy behavior coming from it. Spamming includes repeatedly following/unfollowing people in a short period of time and sharing links only with no personal updates, for example.

    Once Twitter detects that an account is fake, it will suspend it.
