Over the last three months, we’ve noticed a small number of GaggleAMP users had their Twitter accounts temporarily suspended by the social media platform. We believe this may be in part be due to the automated functionality of our system. Therefore, we wanted to bring it to your attention and provide direction on how to avoid any issues with sharing messages on Twitter from GaggleAMP in the future.
What Is Happening?
Recently, Twitter has started suspending accounts when they see posts from a user that has not logged in for a while. They are most likely assuming this activity is coming from a bot. This is understandable; Twitter is making a strong effort to identify accounts it believes are bots because too many bots on Twitter dilutes the quality of the platform for all its users.
How Do I Avoid Being Identified As a Twitter Bot?
To avoid being identified as a bot and avoid Twitter account suspension, we recommend that you either do not use the auto-share function or, if you choose to continue using it, that you routinely use the Twitter app.
Bottom line: Accounts that use the auto-share function and do not actively use Twitter in a non-automated capacity are very likely to be suspended by the social media platform.
What Do I Do If Twitter Locks My Account?
If Twitter suspects an account is using a bot, they are putting a temporary lock on the account. If the account owner does not log into Twitter within 14 days and reauthorize it, the account is suspended. When our system notices your Twitter account is locked, we’ll send you an email asking you to reauthorize your account. Click here to learn more about Twitter suspended accounts.
