I just created a new Twitter account for my Bitcoin website a few days ago https://twitter.com/BitcoinWalker. My new account got suspended after just a few tweets. No email/words from Twitter as to why it was blocked. I submitted a ticket and got an automated reply

Hello,

We understand that you're contesting an account suspension. Please be sure to read this entire email; you will need to take further action in order to reopen your ticket for your account to be reviewed.

If your account was suspended for aggressive following behavior, you should have received an email notification to the address associated with your Twitter account. Please reply to this message and confirm ALL of the following:
• You've removed all prohibited following automation from your account, and will stop any manual aggressive following behavior.
• You've reviewed our Best Practices page: http://support.twitter.com/articles/68916
• You understand our policies and will not engage in any prohibited following behavior.

If you received an email from admin@twitter.com saying "You're being suspended" or that we're going delete your account, you're safe; the email is fake. More information here: https://support.twitter.com/articles/204820

If you're uncertain why your account was suspended, please respond to this message after reviewing the Twitter Rules: http://www.twitter.com/rules

While we strive to avoid mistakes, it's also possible that your account was suspended in error. If after reviewing the Rules, you have no idea why your account was suspended, just reply to this email and we'll review your case.

Thanks,

Twitter Support
http://support.twitter.com

A few hours later the account was opened up again. Still no email/message from Twitter. I carefully reviewed their policies and terms of use and I feel like I did nothing wrong. I haven't followed anyone yet and my very first tweets were normal in every way they could consider. Very difficult to understand!

I hope it was some glitch in their system. Otherwise it could be bad if the Bitcoin thing could trigger their censoring alarms.

Had you posted anything that could be seen as controversial?
Otherwise it looks like a standard error.

Not at all. Had not done anything that could have constituted to 'aggressive behaviors'. I also have some other Twitter accounts and never ever this kind of situation happened to them before. So a temporary suspension on my new account left me to wonder if there could have been something to do with Bitcoin? Is Bitcoin a taboo thing to have with a Twitter account?

There are no censoring alarms on Twitter:

You had more accounts , and the first tweets were links .
Do that a few times and you'll get your accounts temporarily blocked even with a link to the fbi.

Happened to me before , nothing with bitcoin related.
