    Did Amazon give you any reason on closing it ? I don't think it's not prohibit to do that.

    Amazon allows promoting their products on Facebook/Twitter. They offer Site Stripe bar, that instantly allows posting affiliate links to those sites.

    You might have been banned for some other reason.

    Yes, it allowed. You can put Amazon affiliate links anywhere you want. Who knows that this your link is affiliated? It could be regular link to Amazon product and it is allowed!

    I think twitter and facebook are allowed. Amazon prohibits the PPC and promote products on the illegal sites.

    I am not sure if it prohibited, cause twitter and facebook are the largest traffic source in SMO

    If you are logged into amazon, you should see at very top a bar.
    You will see on this bar a button that says SHARE.
    You can share any page or product you find on amazon using the share button and send the link (already with your affiliate name attached) to twitter and to facebook.

    If your account was closed, and you are not bright enough to go to amazon and ask, I am thinking you were doing something against the TOS!!!!

    The reason for closing the account must have been given in the email by Amazon. If it wasn't given please contact them and seek a valid reason.
