Mosey Along Now, Accounts Suspended on Twitter

-by Al Ferretti and Skeeter Hansen

“Tons of Accounts Accidently Suspended on Twitter”

UPDATE: Twitter reports “Restoring accidently suspended accounts”..
UPDATE: TweetLater reports “Twitter Account Suspensions”
UPDATE: Skeeter and I have been officially reinstated. Yes~ The withdrawals are over and no medication was needed. :-)

Sadly, tonight Skeeter Hansen and myself (Al Ferretti) became part of the suspended on Twitter. When we logged into twitter we received a message in a redbox that states:

Account Suspended
This account is currently suspended and is being investigated due to strange activity. If we have suspended your account mistakenly, please let us know. See Suspended Accounts for more information.

Meanwhile, if you visited our updates while we were under suspension, you would’ve seen the infamous “Mosey along now”

Ben Parr with Mashable and Matt Singley quickly reported on the influx and wave of twitter account  suspensions and what you can do about it, if you have been suspended.

We are happy to see that Twitter is taking action with all of the spam going on. Sometimes when making necessary changes, innocent people are temporarily affected.

Please leave us a comment whether you were suspended or not and how you feel about it…
