On Wednesday, I introduced a program called Twitter Affiliate Cash that claimed to take a new or existing Twitter account and turn it into a means to make money. Well, our reader Shaun from http://www.outdoor-wedding-decorations.com/ had pointed out that the owner Bill McRea’s Twitter account had been suspended due to strange activity.
Now, it doesn’t exactly bode well for Bill that his Twitter account has been suspended when the program he created deals specifically with Twitter. Well, in my preview piece, I had pointed out that Bill made it really easy to get in contact with him. And that’s just what I did earlier today. Here’s our conversation.
My Conversation with Bill McRea
[9:38:34 AM] Steve: Hey Bill. What’s the status on your Twitter account?
[9:40:23 AM] Bill McRea: The folks at twitter thing I am squatting on my name. I am trying to prove to them I am Bill McRea
[9:41:04 AM] Steve: Ah, I was just about to do a review on your Twitter program when one of my readers pointed out that your account was shut down.
[9:41:54 AM] Bill McRea: Very simple there is a Bill McRea in Florida that is a world famous magician and he claims I squatted on his name
[9:42:30 AM] Bill McRea: One thing for sure. Twitter is Like Google they presume guilty before innocence
[9:43:37 AM] Steve: Ah, that sucks. Hopefully they restore it soon.
[9:44:13 AM] Bill McRea: Yes I almost had 19000 followers. They said it can take up to 30 days to process and dispute
[9:44:37 AM] Bill McRea: This is great message to share with your readers.
[9:45:08 AM] Bill McRea: If you pick a celebrity’s name..even if it is your own name, you can get shut down at the drop of a hat
[9:46:32 AM] Steve: Yea, best of luck getting it restored. I’m going to have to hold off on my review though. It’ll look bad if we start promoting a Twitter program and the owner is suspended from Twitter haha.
[9:47:22 AM] Bill McRea: I certainly understand. The whole point of the account and the program is to teach people how to promote responsibly. Very frustrating for sure
Plausible? Definitely seeing there really is a magician named Bill McRea in Florida. The fact still stands that Bill’s Twitter account is suspended though. I’m going to hold off on my full review until his account is restored. I’ll let you know when I’m back on track.
