How Do You Handle Throwaway Accounts in Competitions?

Last updated: June 18, 2021

When throwaway restriction is enabled, Gleam performs an additional check that rejects Twitter profiles that do not meet our minimum quality criteria for entering campaigns.

This option is designed to reduce spammers & cheaters, simultaneously ensuring the quality and legitimacy of your entrants.

If a contestant is suspected of using a throwaway account, they will see the following message when attempting to complete your action:

Sorry throwaway Twitter accounts are not allowed

What Is An Invalid Entry?

We automatically flag certain entries that come across as Invalid. For example, if the action was incomplete, or if we detected suspicious activity from the user.

What Are Verified Actions Or Entries?

Gleam uses a wide integration of APIs and social networks to check that entrants have completed your actions before awarding entries.
