I’m in Twitter Hell and Calling for Help

Under-ConstructionHello my friends. I come to you today after over five days of trying to get Twitter to unlock my @HouseofTaboo account.  Due to their algorithms, all four of my pen names involved in Triberr were tagged and locked. I was able to unlock three of them without issue. Unfortunately, when it came to my Taboo account, I flipped two of the verification code numbers and then I couldn’t continue to try to open it. I had to wait a couple hours and try again. Unfortunately, when I did it again that’s when my nightmare started.

Now every time I enter my phone number to get the verification code, I get a message that states “Sorry. Due to a technical issue we can’t complete your request at this time. Please try again.”

Wait! There’s more.

Twitter DOES send me a verification code without a problem even with the technical issue. What doesn’t happen is the screen that should come up where I enter the code to then unlock my account. No matter how often I try to do it, nothing works and I get the same error message and yet another code sent to my phone. I’ve emailed Twitter and either I get an automated response telling me “you can unlock your account yourself by using a code sent to your cell phone.”

Blink. Blink

Now, I’m sure you’re thinking what I’ve been thinking for the last week. What. The. Hell? If I could do that, I wouldn’t be in this predicament. If Twitter had real, live people in charge of these sort of issues I wouldn’t be in this mess. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has had to go through this. I don’t have time to muck around and wait for them to fix it either. Instead, I created another account using a brand new email address (because Twitter won’t let you have more than one account per email address). Now I need to rebuild my followers and start following all those I followed before.

Please bear with me. It’s going to take a while to rebuild and not get locked out again because I’m following too many accounts at one time. Since I can’t get into Twitter, I can’t use Triberr since they operate using the same API key as Twitter. What that means is that since I can’t post to Twitter, I can’t use Triberr. Trust me. I’ve been in contact with Triberr and they have been WONDERFULLY SUPPORTIVE. Unfortunately, there isn’t anything they can do about the issue for now. So I wait and take another route…

Together we can get through this bump in the road and make social media work for us again.

Thank you!



Let’s celebrate Christmas early with the Candy Kisses Gang! Sassy Vixen Publishing has released Have a Naughty, Naughty Christmas as a stand alone. It’s available on all ebook outlets.


Naughty Chirstmas best version large


Candice Monroe’s restaurant, Candy Kisses is the place to be during the holidays in the Detroit Metro area. The menu of old classics and one-of-a-kind specialties keep customers coming back for more. As a result, she and her partners don’t have a moment to breathe let alone act upon the growing sexual tension building between the three of them.

Former Marines and sometimes lovers, Alexander Rabinov and Gabriel Jacobs help keep the restaurant running smoothly. Alex’s culinary skills and Gabe’s expertise as pastry chef combine well with Candice’s vision for the future of the business, and her secret desires.

Just when the men are about to act on their feelings and whisk her away for a much needed vacation, international playboy Darrin Bryant calls with an offer they just can’t refuse. He’ll front the money for Candice to expand the restaurant if they spend the holiday weekend catering a gathering at his home. The offer came with one more stipulation. Candice is to act as Darrin’s companion in front of the guests, but he made it clear he wished for more—from all of them.

Will Darrin’s proposition come between the trio, or help them fulfill their wildest naughty Christmas fantasies?
