Knowingly run campaigns on behalf of users that are already banned for previous TOS violations;

General. These Terms shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Twickle concerning the Services. If any provision of these Terms is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which shall remain in full force and effect.
