There was then no further communication from Twitter until...
This account was suspended for sending multiple unsolicited messages using the @reply and/or mention feature. These features are intended to make communication between people on Twitter easier. Twitter monitors the use of these features to make sure they are used as intended and not for abuse. Using either feature to post messages to a bunch of users in an unsolicited or egregious manner is considered an abuse of its use, which results in account suspension.

I then attempted to gain clarity as Twitter's response did not really answer my query, in my opinion of course.
Well, as you have not been specific about which tweets you are referring to, I cannot fully defend myself.
Whilst the tweets may have been unsolicited - all tweets are unsolicited, it is their very nature. However, I deny that any of my tweets are egregious. On the rare occasions I swear I use symbols to block out letters and do not consider that any of my tweets could be construed abusive. I have remained courteous at all times.
My tweets are directed at all my followers or specifically at individuals who might be interested due to their interests or positions. As you have failed to give concrete examples of any problems, it is difficult for me to know exactly what the issue(s) is(are).
As I have already advised you, you suspended my account just after I had finished reading the rules; so I very much doubt I shall find any help there.
No-one I have contacted has ever said they objected to one of my tweets and if anyone (or more than one!) has blocked me, I am assuming I would be informed of that. That being so, as far as I am aware I have not been blocked.
Whenever I come across spammers, I have blocked them and apprised you thus exercising my civic duty.
As the point of twitter is surely to network and share information, which is all I have been doing, I cannot see what issue you take with my tweets. I behave in the twittersphere as I would in the real world: with politeness, honesty and where possible humour.
I iterate that without your being more specific, it will be impossible for me to behave as you would have me. Please therefore provide me with a fuller explanation, than thus far given, as well as detailed guidance on how to avoid pitfalls.

I did as I was told, and once again I was bounced.

In effect, Twitter has made it impossible for me to truly determine what the problem is/was. I suspect it could be related to my Storify, but as Twitter have not been specific, I cannot be sure of this. Whilst, in future, I can refrain from apprising folk of their inclusion in a Storify - which seems both rude and impolite to me - if this is not the problem, I am very much likely to again commit the "egregious" travesty.
Twitter, has left me in a Catch-22 situation. All tweets one initiates are unsolicited, by their very nature. I doubt very much that sending less than two hundred tweets (as up to three folk were included per tweet) could in any reasonable person's mind be described as "egregious".
Either Twitter is a space to share ideas & information and to network or it is not, in which case what is the point of Twitter?
