1. Appeal account locked

Sample message

Hello Twitter Support,

Trust this email finds you well.

My account is currently locked (@ Twitter Handle). I tried verifying my account via Phone Call, when i click “Call me” action bar, it keeps giving me this error ” Sorry, the request failed. Please try again later”

I think there is an issue with the callback service, kindly look into it and unlock my account.

My number: “Your Mobile number”

Attached is a screenshot of the error message. “Attach screenshots of the error message”



“Your Name”

3. Logout from Twitter

Now log out your account from every device you are logged into.

4. Wait

Wait for 5-7 days from the day you replied Twitter Support.

5. Login again

Now login your account from a device or a web browser you have not used to access your account before.

This is what i did, and when i click on the “Call Me” after 7 days, the call went through, and now i have my account back.

I sincerely hope this works for you. Good Luck.

  6. Hi, I’ve submitted multiple appeals since Sunday June 14. I haven’t even received an email back from Twitter yet. Is there anything I can do/follow to try speed up the process of getting my account back? Thanks.

      • It’s been 7 days and I have emailed again & appealed. Do they usually take this long for restricted accounts? My account is restricted bcuz I Got a new number and my old number is attached to my account and no longer in service. So I’m unable to verify. Do you think they will email me back & unlock my account? I never knew of Twitter to take this long for reaching back out to you about appeals.

  7. Hello Uncle Mark! On Tuesday I heard about the verification by phone on Twitter and that same day I appealed. At the moment, I got no response. I saw several users saying that it resolves after 48 hours. You say to wait a few days and send the form again? Of course, thank you very much and you are my guide to solve this issue of an account in which I had more than fourteen thousand followers.

  8. Hello Uncle Mark
    I repeated several times and the message is that you tried a lot, try later
    I have to wait a few hours to be able to try again and call me
    thank you

  9. Hi everyone,
    Twitter locked my account for “automated behaviour” which is not true! Have contacted the support many times.. with no progress
    It’s been over 2 weeks and I’m still without my account. Any recommendation?
