Some of our users have pointed out that their Twitter account was suspended after they participated in a handful of Twitter bounties. Twitter has strict anti-spam policies, and will quickly suspend accounts that seem to be engaged in them.
This guide aims to briefly point what you can do in order to avoid getting suspended on Twitter, while participating in Twitter bounties.
List of things to watch out for when participating in a twitter bounty:
- Only post high-quality tweets. Low quality quoted retweets like "This is good" or "Good job team" will likely get flagged by Twitter and may get your account suspended.
- Don't use too many hashtags (#example) or cashtags ($BNTY). A good tweet should not need more than 2-3 hashtags and/or cashtags.
- Do not tag too many people in a tweet. Tagging up to 3-5 people in a tweet shouldn't be a problem. However, if you tag significantly more accounts then these users may report you for spam, which could get your account suspended.
- Do not purchase likes/retweets for a tweet. Twitter can easily detect unusual behavior and may suspend your account if it notices that the like/retweet profile of your tweets is not natural.
- Do not tweet excessively. Focus on quality over quantity, making dozens of tweets per day may get your account flagged by Twitter for suspicious behavior.
- Do not mass follow other accounts. Following hundreds of accounts a day in an aim to get some to "follow back" to increase your own following may get your account suspended by Twitter.
