My wife went into labor at 5am this morning. On the way to the hospital I shot a quick twitter sms from my phone letting people know. I got back a error message but did not think that much about it because of all the issues especially with SMS.
So as I am sitting in the hospital room I am browsing the web on my phone I try to log into twitter and it tells me that my account has been deleted but I can restore it. So I try to restore it and it tells me that it is deleted because it was in violation of terms of service.
I will tell you I sent 1 spam through twitter and used the API as it is exactly spelled out. I added and deleted some people playing with the api a few weeks back seeing how it worked but have not messed with it since.
I have always been a huge advocate of twitter and we have raved about it on our show weekly. I also have implemented twitter on my blog as you can see in the top right corner.
One thing about having a very popular site is people try to make a quick buck and target you. It looks like within minutes of the account being deleted someone made this account
and made it look like it was me. It is NOT me.
I remember a similar thing happened to Seth Godin not to long ago.
I have bigger fish to fry right now like my wife and our new baby who could be due at any minute but I just wanted to let people know.
Hopefully twitter will return my support requests.
