Direct Message request error: This request looks like it might be automated


#1

Hello, I have created a console application that responds by direct messages to users who make a request. We never send messages without a prior request.

Sometimes Twitter sends me the following notification:
This request looks like it might be automated. To protect our users from spam and other malicious activity, we can’t complete this action right now. Please try again later

I use the streaming API.
The language of the application is very respectful.

Can somebody help resolve this problem?

[I deleted your duplicate post, and moved this to REST as the direct message API is REST, not streaming]

That error message most often occurs when the post includes a link or username that our algorithm (or other users) have marked as malware or spam. You should review our support article on unsafe links on Twitter.
