You Can Never Be Too Popular – except on Twitter

[update] – this looks like a Twitter accident.

They say that you can never be too popular.  Twitter disagrees.  Prolific Tweeter, Connie Crosby, of Connie Crosby Blog, Slaw and Crosby Group Consulting fame has apparently been bounced from (but maybe now reinstated to) Twitter.  You can see some other people tweeting about it on Twitter.

We’re not sure what’s going on here, but some think, that she had too many Twitter followers.  Another Tweeter, reports that Connie “still has the account but the content is gone except for 1 tweet and 2 followers!”

Keep upto date on this — where else — on Twitter.

@conniecrosby – hope to see you Tweeting again soon.

    Thanks so much! While I don’t yet know the full story, I do know that Twitter was actively working to delete spam-type accounts. They set a wide net and a few of us were accidentally caught. I am being patient and hoping they can reinstate my full account. I was sending tweets from my cell phone, not knowing the account had been deleted, so there is one sad message replacing the whole stream of almost 10,000 past tweets.

    I have heard from Twitter and am hopeful they can reinstate it. Meanwhile, it is a lovely holiday weekend here in Toronto so I’m not online too much and going to enjoy the weekend.

    I appreciate your support!

    Cheers,
    Connie

    I’m glad that Twitter has decided to do something about the spam though. It’s a shame that people like Connie get caught in the crossfire. It looks like they reinstated the account now so I guess things are back to normal. For a great quick way to monitor twitter have you seen monitter.com? I just wrote a blog about it. Finding information by keyword (i.e. conniecrosby) you can monitor mentions and stay up on the latest information.
