Log in to your Twitter account.
Look for a message notifying you that your account has been locked.

Error: 403 - Account Suspension

The error message from Twitter states: "Your account is suspended and is not permitted to access this feature. code - 64."

This error means that your Twitter account is currently suspended. All posts to Twitter will fail while your account is suspended. Twitter suspends accounts for various reasons, including spam, account security risks, and abusive behavior.

To unsuspend your Twitter account, follow these steps:

Log in to your account. If prompted, provide your phone number or confirm your email address as requested.
If no prompts appear, Twitter may have suspended your account based on a violation of their rules. In such cases, you need to appeal directly to Twitter here.

To prevent future account locks or suspensions, keep the following in mind:

Ensure the security of your Twitter account. Review Twitter's guidelines on securing your account here.
Familiarize yourself with Twitter's rules and policies here and avoid any violations that may lead to account suspension.
Avoid posting duplicate tweets, as this is a common reason for account suspensions. When using social media management tools like eclincher, refrain from posting the same exact tweet across multiple Twitter profiles. Instead, use the retweet function for additional profiles. For original tweets, select the specific Twitter account in eclincher's post editor. To ensure uniqueness, utilize one-time queues instead of recycle or end-date queues.

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact our 24/7 Support Team.

Thank you,
