For what it's worth, Twitter restored my account after a couple of days of looping through 'help' forms. Initially I was supposed to put a phone number in to restore it, but it wouldn't accept a Bosnian number. Each time I filed a support request I'd get an automated email telling me something I already knew, which I could reply to, which triggered another automated email telling me something else I already knew. Eventually I got one that said:

Your account is now unlocked, and we're sorry for the inconvenience.

Twitter has automated systems that find and remove automated spam accounts and it looks like your account got caught up in one of these spam groups by mistake.

I couldn't figure out what twitter rule I could possibly have violated (except maybe using a VPN left a flag?) and nor did they answer my appeals for why a Bosnian phone number is considered invalid.
