You may want to look at the Twitter Rules ( - 
specifically the section on spam), and review your application's goals. If your 
application makes it easy for users to spam others, and if many of your users 
have been reported for activity generated by your application, that may be 
grounds for your application to be suspended.

I'm sure you'll get a response to your support ticket from a Twitter employee 
in the next few days.
