My IP Address is Banned


#1

Our IP address is 209.161.20.61. It appears that we’ve been banned from accessing the Twitter API. This is a shared IP, but our two particular applications use OAuth.

We’re using a deprecated library for C# called TweetSharp. However, we’re still using this library on a number of other sites (and even locally for development) and we’re able to get user feeds into our application. We aren’t able to use CURL to test, however, when we make a GET request to “https://api.twitter.com/oauth/authorize” from our online application, there is no response. However, from our local application and other sites in the wild, we get HTML back with the message:

“Whoa there! There is no request token for this page. That’s the special key we need from applications asking to use your Twitter account. Please go back to the site or application that sent you here and try again; it was probably just a mistake.”

This leads me to believe that the API isn’t responding to requests on the above IP. According to FAQs, the way to get un-banned is to post in the discussion. Are there any other methods or trouble tickets that our clients could pay for?
