I’m not a developer but I’ve been running across a number of problems with Twitter.
First, my account was suspended for supposed automated or bot behavior. I only schedule tweets via TweetDeck but not regularly or even on a daily basis. Other connected apps include WordPress.com. Regular number of tweets would be 25-30 a day, and would include replies, a number of favorites and retweets. I do not promote anything on my page at all and it’s actually quite personal so I was surprised it got locked.
Trying to unlock my account took a while because of the delay in sending the verification code. Some codes came in a day late and so when I tried inputting it, I got an “invalid code” during my attempt to unlock it. I was able to restore my account about three days after, but also got an email my account was suspended “due to multiple or repeat violations of the Twitter Rules”. I think it’s unfair to just suspend accounts without a prior warning indicating specific violations the user (I have) has been committing.
Second, when I got back my account I was able to tweet for a day and a half before I started encountering issues this time in tweeting. I noticed it first using the Twitter App for Android wherein I would repeatedly getting a “failed to tweet” notification. It was when I used my web browser that I found out the reason, which is Twitter Error Code 226.
I am again not sure why Twitter is tagging my tweets as spam as I do not promote or sell products nor used any automated means apart from the Tweet Deck scheduling which isn’t even on a regular basis. I tried the other solutions recommended here: Error Code 226 - This request looks like it might be automated but to no avail, including logging out and resetting my password.
This is really frustrating me because I do not understand or know the violation I committed if any, and because I am not getting any troubleshooting support from Twitter for a personal account.
