If your post to Twitter is getting blocked and you are receiving this error in your email:

Message from Twitter: 403:The request is understood, but it has been refused. An accompanying error message will explain why. This code is used when requests are being denied due to update limits (https://support.twitter.com/articles/15364-about-twitter-limits-update-api-dm-and-following). message - To protect our users from spam and other malicious activity, this account is temporarily locked. Please log in to https://twitter.com to unlock your account. code - 326

It means that your account is temporarily locked by Twitter due to security reasons. While the Twitter account is in lock status, all posts will fail.

If your account appears to have exhibited automated behavior that violates the Twitter Rules, they may lock it and request for you to confirm that that you are the valid owner of the account.

To unlock the account:

Log in to your account.
Look for the message letting you know your account has been locked.
Click or tap Start.
Enter your phone number. Please note that Twitter will associate this phone number with your account.
Twitter will send you a text message, or you will receive a phone call, with a verification code. It may take a few minutes for the code to be delivered to your phone.
Once you’ve entered the verification code, click or tap Submit to unlock your account.
If you have an email address associated with your account, Twitter also has sent instructions to that address. If you don’t see an email from them, please check your spam, junk and social folders.

If your post to Twitter is getting blocked and you are receiving this error in your email:

Message from Twitter: 403:The request is understood, but it has been refused. An accompanying error message will explain why. This code is used when requests are being denied due to update limits (https://support.twitter.com/articles/15364-about-twitter-limits-update-api-dm-and-following). message - Your account is suspended and is not permitted to access this feature. code - 64

It means that your Twitter account is currently suspended. All posts to Twitter will fail while the Twitter account is in suspended status.

Reasons why Twitter suspends accounts:

Spam: Most of the accounts we suspend are suspended because they are spammy, or just plain fake, and they introduce security risks for Twitter and all of our users. These types of accounts are against our Twitter Rules. Unfortunately, sometimes a real person’s account gets suspended by mistake, and in those cases we’ll work with the person to make sure the account is unsuspended.

Account security at risk: If we suspect an account has been hacked or compromised, we may suspend it until it can be secured and restored to the account owner in order to reduce potentially malicious activity caused by the compromise.

Abusive Tweets or behavior: We may suspend an account if it has been reported to us as violating our Rules surrounding abuse. When an account engages in abusive behavior, like sending threats to others or impersonating other accounts, we may suspend it temporarily or, in some cases, permanently.

To unsuspend a Twitter account:

You may be able to unsuspend your own account. If you log in and see prompts that ask you to provide your phone number or confirm your email address, follow the instructions to get your account unsuspended.

If no prompts appear that requests for your phone number, or confirm your email address, Twitter may have suspended your account due to violation of their rules. Twitter has an automated system that detects this, however, this system does make mistakes from time to time. If you think they have made a mistake, you would need to appeal to Twitter right here:

To avoid getting locked or suspended by Twitter:

Make sure that your Twitter account is secured: https://help.twitter.com/en/safety-and-security/twitter-account-compromised

Do not violate any Twitter's rules: https://help.twitter.com/en/rules-and-policies/twitter-rules . Continuous violation will lead to account suspension.

Another common reason why Twitter accounts get suspended is by posting duplicate Tweets. While using social media management tools, this may be possible, but it is important that you do not do this.

Do not post the same exact Tweet across different Twitter profiles. In eclincher, once you select multiple Twitter profiles in the post editor, only one Twitter account can Tweet, while the others will do a retweet only.



(You can select which Twitter account will do the original Tweet. Just click on the profile above. The Twitter account that will display the Twitter logo will be the account to do the original Tweet)

Do not post the exact Tweet that has been Tweeted before. If you do this continuously, Twitter may suspend your account. If you would use auto post with queues for Twitter, do not use Recycle or End Date Queues. Only use One Time queue to ensure that each Tweet is unique, and no Tweet gets recycled/re-posted.

If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Our Support Team is available 24/7 to assist you.
