Hello I would like the answer to this question and if it is not against twitter rules/law.
Are automatic retweet program against twitter ToS or the law?
The retweet program only retweets mentioned in the tweet (@username) and used to help users to share their tweets with a wider audience. the program will check every 1-10 minutes for any new tweets with mentions and retweet them.
This program will NOT check every second as it can cause problems on twitter API’s side or get the app temporary blocked. I am well aware of that.
heres a little example of what i’m trying to say:
- user has 10 followers and tweets out his “youtube video” and tags the auto-retweet account
- auto-retweet account has 10k followers
- auto-retweet account retweets the tweet and now instead of 10 followers (of the user), 10k followers now know about the video and this is helping him the user by sharing his video to a wider audience
“Automation of Retweets often leads to spam and other negative user experiences; therefore, Retweeting in a bulk or automated manner is prohibited. Automated Retweeting is permitted for apps or accounts that Twitter deems to provide a community benefit.”
As this will help provide the community of some sort (blogging, makeup, designers, gamers etc…) would this still be against the twitter rules?
