    Default Did Twitter turn on us?

    I just paid Twitter a visit, did a search for gambling and almost every user account on the front page is suspended. We are not talking huge followers here. 3-700 tops.

    Are all gamblers spamming or is Twitter taking a 'conservative' road?

    FYI my gambling accounts are not (yet) suspended

    No, I think depends on what they were doing, If you send a lot of DM and then got blocked but users twitter suspends you fast

    I am noticing that some days when I sign on I am following an extra 200 people - people I did not follow! I am not talking about people who follow me, I am talking about people I am following.

    Somehow someone is doing that. Maybe some of these folks get caught and closed down.

    Also, there is a lot of domain squatting, people asking for money to free your domain, and people using common well known domains to collect followers they can spam.

    Lots of twitter headaches...

    I do have a tweetlater account....

    But how does that make me follow someone I didn't follow? I don't do autofollows.

    I actually have a good casino_resource twitter account. And I observe more casino related members starting to follow me which I wonder why since I havent told them so or promote my account there.
