Bad news for anyone using the Shoutcast now playing to Twitter scripts!

It appears Twitter have started banning accounts that auto publish things like now playing information.

This was a post on the Winamp forums.

After having my station posting to Twitter for 10 years, my account has been suspended.

I went through the appeals procedure, only to be sent a generic e-mail saying my account had breached multiple violations of their terms of service, and don't contact us again comment.

I appealed again asking what the violations were [I police my account carefully] and got the same generic reply.

So Twitter suspends you without a proper reason, and won't talk about it. Thanks Twitter.

Let that be a warning to those who think using Twitter to promote your station is a good idea.

So its time to stop those scripts automatically posting information otherwise you might find you Twitter account suspended

Just warning people... don't shoot the messenger!
