Oh. The panic! I was with some friends chatting away, checking Twitter every few minutes. Then I refreshed the page. And saw that. And the mood changed.
How was I to get those followers again? Notice the 0 following, the 0 followers, and the suggestions? As if I am a complete newbie. I decided the unimaginable. I would never return to twitter!
The first thing I do when I wake up is check my twitter, and that’s exactly what I did the following morning, and my heart sank AGAIN when I met the damning statement.
What would you do? This is what I did, out of sheer faith.
I have read the “Following rules and best practices and best Practices” and I would attest that I am not using an automated multi-following app. However, the day before yesterday, I signed up to an app called Roundteam that tracks and Retweets certain words. I figured it would be a boost to me as I was Retweeting keywords in my field of interest. Is that forbidden?
I have since Revoked its access, and all third party apps I have been using. Is there anything more I have to do to get my account back?
Please help, I would love to get my follow list back.
So, I got my account back, and I am happy.
Don’t go through this, avoid a Twitter Suspension by:
- Not following, favouriting, retweeting, mentioning other people aggressively and randomly.
- Double-checking what apps have access to your account and revoke unnecessary ones
- Taking care not to get hacked. Have a strong password, and change it oftenly.
