Why Is Your Twitter Account Banned?

Your Twitter account can be banned due to numerous reasons—violating community guidance rules above all. Here are the most common examples of Twitter rules violations that will get you banned from the platform:

  1. Infringing on someone’s authenticity
  2. Jeopardizing someone’s safety
  3. Violating someone’s privacy

Note that Twitter may also temporarily suspend or lock your account under the suspicion that somebody is trying to hack it. In that case, you can expect your account to be restored as soon as Twitter eliminates the threat.

Sending other users spam mail to attract their attention or trying to initiate unwanted contact will get your Twitter account banned. The same is true if you try to manipulate the platform for your personal gain.

Here are some concrete examples of authenticity violations on Twitter

  • Creating and operating multiple accounts to create fake engagement or boost the popularity of specific tweets
  • Posting misleading content and sending messages that are disrupting other user’s experience
  • Impersonating other people by using stolen photos or bios
  • Using misleading profile information (such as fake location)
  • Performing copyright and trademark violation

Banned Twitter Account—Endangering the Safety of Other Users

  • Promoting any sort of violence
  • Promoting terrorism and hate crimes
  • Sharing child pornography, nudity, and other forms of exploitation
  • Promoting self-harm or suicide
  • Posting and sharing any type of adult content
