Sun 5th July 2009
Restoring accidentally suspended accounts 1 week ago
Earlier today, we accidentally suspended a number of accounts.
We regret the human error that led to these mistaken suspensions and we are working to restore the affected accountsâ€”we expect this to be completed in the next several hours.
One additional note: some the accounts suspended were using the third-party site Tweetlater. However, Tweetlater is not to blame for these suspensions nor is it in violation of our Terms.
@paul_steele @milliontwits Hey @felicityfuller came back from suspension, maybe she knows some more info?
@paul_steele hiya they said that “It looks like you got caught up in some sort of spam cloud (through no fault of your own)” @milliontwits
