Recently my account was suspended (then reinstated) for following:
This account was suspended for sending multiple
unsolicited @replies or mentions.
Twitter monitors the use of these features to make sure they’re not
abused. Using either feature to post messages to other users in an
unsolicited or egregious manner is considered an abuse of its use,
which results in account suspension.
Now I am a bit confused, what exactly do you mean by “unsolicited” replies
or mentions? or “egregious manner” ??
- so everytime I reply to a tweet is that unsolicited?
because it was not addressed to me?
- if someone sends me a tweet or I respond to a tweet (reply) that
has or mentions others i.e., tweet text @mention1, @mention2
are you suggesting I take the others out of the tweet? since I have
not tweeted with them before?
- Many replies and mentions I get are unsolicited, I never complain
what exactly do you mean by unsolicited? if I am referring to a tweet
that was available for me to respond to even when it was not
exactly sent to me? or if I am referring to a user? for example
if I am twitting to @housespeaker…I cannot embed his twitter
account so I can let him know what I am saying?
- At times I am attacked by those of with different view points
with hostility is responding to them “in kind” an “unsolicited reply”?
Is this a fair way of handling free speech? sometimes my response may involve
multiple replies given the 140 limit but they attacked me first
and I am responding, is my response still an “unsolicited” reply??
