Woe woe and thrice woe – my Twitter account has been suspended for a “minimum of one week”.

It seems I have been a naughty boy by “churning” too much – which is to say that I recently decided a bit of a cull of the people I am following, while adding some possibly interesting London based people has triggered an alert at Twitter and I have been slapped on the wrist.

Oh well.

Hopefully will be back on Twitter next week, as I do miss the chatter.

Incidentally, not blogging a lot right now as am very busy working on a new project – ironically, developing a new service based on Twitter.

Sample Issue


  1. Twitter really are idiots when it comes to this sort of thing. I got booted off for 12 hours in the summer (although I was on holiday so barely noticed) without any explanation.

  2. I’m a bit shocked by this… it just seems so arbitrary. I know it’s a free service, but it seems a bit strong to be suspended for simply adding and deleting contacts.

  3. So, you reduced your followers but increased those you’re following and your account was suspended! Have I got that right? I was just about to do the same thing but feel quite concerned now.

    Sorry to hear about this and hope you are restored soon.
