Important! Twitter Banning Auto Posting Accounts


Recommended Posts

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!
