Several things can be considered Traitorous, so keep in mind that this is a basic guideline. Some are disputed, and are different from SERVER TO SERVER. Make sure you read the server rules and ask a staff/regular member about some of the disputed rules.

Traitorous Acts:
Holding a T weapon
Exceptions may be if the D and T both have access to a weapon (On my server, the Ts and Ds both can get a grapple hook), but you have to state that a detective dropped it for you or that you got it off of a ded T/D. Annonce it as soon as you pick it up, and don't be an idiot with T-exclusive weapons. People will might think you're a T if you're running around with a rocket launcher out, even if you've declared you picked it up.
Killing someone
Even if you've killed a T, with every reason, make sure you KOS before you kill. People might not see the T just blow someone up and then run away from an UnIDed, but they did just see you shoot that person in the back, and will proceed to do the same. Others might just assume you RDMed if you don't announce it.
Walking by UnIDed Bodies
Throwing grenades
Some servers have rules for certain maps, other just say no grenade throwing at all, and it depends on the server. It's even disputed within the Taco Stand whether throwing Incins/Discombobs on all maps or certain maps are KOSable (It's technically all maps, but that's besides the point).
Good habits
Some tips I have for everyone, from my experience
Communicate
Talk to people. If you see a murder, say it. That guy looks fishy? It's just his player model, he's a fish. But he's also suspicous, so tell people you think so. Also, as a T, MAKE SURE YOUR TEAM KNOWS WHAT YOU'RE DOING WITH TEAM CHAT. If you're going to go in guns blazing, warn them. Certainly warn them if you're going to Jihad or plant C4. The other day I was reported for RDM because my T buddy didn't see my C4 or hear me warn him that I planted it.
Take everything with a grain of salt
I don't like to kill someone because someone told me too. I need hard evidence that they're a T. It does give the T a bit of an advantage, yes, but for your long term survival on a server, it's a lot better. You'll be trusted a lot more, and you'll have better Karma.
Try not to be alone
It seems suspicous and you'll probably end up getting shot in the back anyways.
Mess with people's mind
"KOS RangerLab!" "What? KOS For False KOS, scrub." I've now created doubt. I'm the T, I shot at this player, but who's telling the truth? No body knows, and while you do this, you might be able to get away and cause some chaos, possibly pick up some more kills.
Radio Calls
Suggested by Mattishere4u
So this is one that I have gotten into rather recently (hence why it had to be suggested). Radio calls are things that you can quickly say, that change with who you're looking at, so you can KOS someone without taking the time to type or yell. The menu is bound to your "SuitZoom" Key, which by default is not bound at all. Going into the controls will allow you to change that. I have mine bound to x. Just look at a person, press the key and select the number next to your desired message. Thanks Matt, for the suggestion!
Watch your step!
Suggested by Dr.Doongleberry {GFL}
This one is very simple, yet important. Many times have I fallen off of ledges either dying or getting hurt, drawing suspicion to myself. Even if people don't question why you're missing health, you're going to be at a severe disadvantage in a fight with lower health, both T and Inno.
Use your Surroundings
Suggested by [EMS] Agent Pyrobot
Learn the map and use it to your advantage. Try and herd people to dangerous places (but try not to make it so obvious.) Plant C4 in areas where people hang out or are moving frequently. Divert attention from a crime scene with an exploding barrel. Be creative!
A Final Word
I would like to remind everyone that rules/technicalities for TTT Change per server. Players might be able to KOS for grenades on one map, but it's different for the next. READ THE SERVER RULES BEFORE PLAYING.
