Somehow I developed a very similar method to automate tweeting amex offers by combining IFTTT and twitterfeed, without knowing the blog post you mentioned here. I published on my Chinese blog a couple of days ago.

However, after the Amex Exxon offer was tweeted by offersbot and repost by all of my twitter accounts, all of my accounts (15+) got suspended. What’s more annoying is that twitter doesn’t have direct phone number to resolve this! After filing two appeals with two different accounts, I finally gave up — I have no confidence that twitter is gonna listen to my explanation. After all, this anti-spamming act is legit and my fight against it is pale.

I’m not sure if that was because @offersbot complained to @twfeed and twitterfeed reported it to twitter?! Anyways, I’m trying to register for some new twitter accounts and test some other strategies like direct fetch from Amex’s favorites tweets (isn’t it how @offersbot works?!)

Hope this data point helps. I guess if we know how twitter inspect spammy-like accounts and hopefully no one reports to twitter, we will be safe in the future…


Grammar is important. Please write “Number of points”. Not “Amount of points”…
It is like nails on a chalkboard every time I read it.

Here is the rule on that:
