Locked Out of Twitter? You Weren't the Only One!

February 11, 2015 by Sarah Netemeyer

A slew of Twitter users were locked out of Twitter yesterday after Twitter mislabeled their accounts as non-human bots. Annoyed human users then had to confirm that they were the valid account owner in order to regain access to their accounts.

 

 

So what gives? Well, Twitter turned up the heat on combating bots a little too much. Luckily for Twitter addicts, the platform realized the issue quickly and fixed the problem within an hour. That was a dark, dark hour I'm sure. 

 

It's great that Twitter is agressivley going after non-human accounts which are way too prolific on the social media platform. Hopefully their progressive strides won't cause additional disruptions!
