My apps is being restricted and Twitter send me this email.
“Your app was restricted for sending a large volume of unsolicited and/or repeat @username”.
My apps are only to REPLY to customers tweet against our tweets or @username aboout us.
While my apps reply using the API: POST “statuses/update”:
We always fill in the 2 fields: [status] and [in_reply_to_status_id].
In [status] field, we always prefix with @username, where username is the author of the referenced Tweet, within the update.
In [in_reply_to_status_id] field, we put in the ID of an existing status that this update is in reply to.
I am confused. I do not send any extra @username in the [status] field.
Why is my tweets are consider as unsolicited replies or mentions.
Is there anyway that I can omit the prefix @username?
This is causing my apps to be “RESTRICTED TO API READ ACCESS ONLY”, thus failed to post tweets via apps.
Also, I had check that I am conform to the the new rate limit.
Anyone experiencing this?
