I keep getting warnings from Twitter that my account is restricted because of "suspicious" activity and then I have to do a captcha test and have had to change my password. I wonder if this is because of the increased number of sweeps that ask you to retweet to enter? I notice that the Sweepstakes today site also now has a warning before I enter it. Is anyone else having this problem? I know this time of year the number of sweeps available is huge so maybe that is the problem. I hate to risk losing my Twitter account, I love twitter sweeps.


I am OK with any sweepers tagging me anytime @brincalkins


Thank you

Twitter suspended my account with the same reason. They have not got back in and they have not answered my messages.  I tag a lot of people about sweeps and guess the same reason.


Boo-Hoo.

Well, this is a bummer :-( Sweeping is the main reason I use Twitter. I appreciate the tags from you and have been lucky enough to win a couple times. Doesn't seem right to be penalized for responding to requests from sponsors of contests.


Thanks for the update and hopefully the issue will be resolved soon.

I also received these messages- one time it said it was because I had signed on to it too many times in a short period (probably when I am hitting "follow" or reweeting on some of these contests). Sweeps are the primary reason for me to be on Twitter too.

I am restricted once each day.   Add to this a problem with recapcha and it is a real pain


Just too many sweeps want adds and follows.

I had to give up Twitter posts for now since I keep getting warnings and temporarily blocked out.  I just do the hashtag contests for the time being until this passes

I used to have trouble with twitter because I would have it open in to many tabs. I went to opening no more than 4 twitter tabs and haven't had a problem since. Hope this helps.
