We have a campaign that allows users to share awareness about Syria refugees.
http://www.helpsyriasrefugees.com/

However, we are now unable to post messages with links in message because of the following error message:
Error 226: 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.

So it seems like our app is blacklisted for url sharing. Is there a way for us to get whitelisted so we can send messages with a URL? The user has approved to use their voice for this sharing.

I have the same issue! Are the Tweets including a hashtag and a link?

We’ve just added this error code to [node:130] and posted a discussion about it at [node:27684].

I know @jaakkosf 's comment. But I can’t tweet anymore on my app.

any news ?


#14

@venkatraghvan changing password doesn’t work. My other accounts are fine. Very strange. Posted the problem to twitter.support. Advise: do the same.


#15

haven’t found a structure of the behaviour. In my case I replied and said “Thanks!” - once locked, you are locked until - in my case - I’ve changed the password again.


#16

same problem with me when using API


#17

I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM.
I barely tweet. I tweet about 5-12 times a month, and I got that message.
I don’t tweet from my app. I logged out from my phone app.
I changed my password & email address for logging in.
Twitter’s Help Center Support is VERY unhelpful for this problem.
How can this be fixed. IT’S BEEN 6 DAYS, & STILL NOT ALLOWING ME TO TWEET!
