I can't send direct messages from my application


#1

A month ago my apllication could send direct messages, but now the API is returning this error: “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”

How can I fix this error to continue sending direct messages from my application??

Thanks in advance

but when i try to send message from the local domain it works for me.

How can I fix this error to continue sending direct messages from my application?

Thanks in advance

Looking for solution. Thanks.

Removing of the link, wich contains app domain, helps me. But anyway, it sucks.

I would like to understand why my app is getting a 226, this request looks like it might be automated. This is an application with Read, write, DM permissions, authorized by the user, That follows my account. While I can understand protecting users, If they have authorized an app to send direct messages and I have to follow them to receive theirs than it should be their decision. This is a hindrance and not in the spirit of furthering product development for either Twitter or third party developers. Wake up or become irrelevant !
