Twitter Tests Notification Banner for Suspended, Locked Accounts for Violating Rules

San Francisco, July 28: Micro-blogging site is testing new notices that tell users if their accounts have been suspended or locked, and have been put in read-only mode for violating Twitter’s rules. The notices, announced on Tuesday, will show up as a banner at the top of your feed.

These are currently in testing across a small percentage of users on iOS, Android and the web, a Twitter spokesperson was quoted as saying by The Verge.

“The company is testing this feature after getting feedback from users that they realised they were suspended or locked and in read-only mode only after trying to tweet or follow new accounts,” the spokesperson added.  Reportedly Testing Internal ‘Dislike’ Button for Tweet Replies.

The new notices spell out users status and provide some additional guidance for those who are locked or suspended. If you have been permanently suspended, you can submit an appeal, according to one notice, and if your account has been locked, that says most accounts get full back in a week, the report said.

Recently, the micro-blogging site said that it is testing a new feature where users will be able to upvote and downvote replies on tweets, saying this is still not a ‘dislike’ button.  Announces Improved Version of TweetDeck; Reportedly Testing New Features in the US, Canada & Australia.
