Well it has been an interesting time being put into a situation where I've felt I've been punished for doing something wrong when I was sure I hadn't. As it turns out, it was a mistake... by Twitter....
Andrea reckons it was like my arm had been cut off :-) Anyway, special thanks to my friends that have stuck by me and have been a great support.
Here is a copy of the text in the email from Twitter giving the reason why it was suspended:
Twitter has automated systems that find and remove multiple automated spam accounts in bulk. Unfortunately, it looks like your account got caught up in one of these spam groups by mistake.
I've restored your account; sorry for the inconvenience.
Please note that it may take an hour or so for your follower and following numbers to return to normal.
Seems that a human responded to me ;-) Well it's lovely to be back and time to get on tweeting again.
