Lately, I got my Twitter account suspended for what I think was due to "automated tweeting". You can read about my suspension here. Basically I like to test new methods and new ideas, This may be because as a Developer I was testing a few Twitter plugins and I think I may have got burnt, which may also happen to you in some ways or if you connect your twitter account to other social sites.
First Step, The first step for getting your twitter account unsuspended is to understand what you did which goes against the Twitter Best Practices. As soon as you understand what you did wrong you are on the road to getting it back.
Secondly, After understanding what you did, You will need to contact Twitter support - http://support.twitter.com/forms and click on "account restoration" link and fill out the contact form as requested.
Before you do this here are a few tips on what to put in the email to them. Acknowledge that you understand you may have done something against the best practices. Tell them what it may have been. Tell them how you are going to make sure it doesn't happen again.
To try and expediate this process, tweet ≡ Hey Dear @twitter @support @spam @techlabcoke @ginger unsuspend @"yourtwitterhandle",please expedite? account was suspended *for aggressive following / automated tweeting *≡
Third Step, Now you have sent Twitter an email you need to wait for a response, and boy do you have to wait a long time! Don't keep chasing them to help you, have patience!
After a few days or hours, you will get an email that look something like this:

Bare in mind that it may take an hour or so for your follower and following numbers to return to normal.
