Clarification on the automation rules!


#1

Hi Twitter Team,
We are looking for clarification on the automation rules that were announced at the end of February relating to the bots that were replicating content on various accounts. We post to several accounts on behalf of our clients that are franchises. They have the same content posted across several accounts in an effort to maintain brand identity. We would like to be able to post on behalf of our clients without violating the automation rules and we don’t want to have our accounts suspended.
We appreciate your help in this matter!
Thank you,

Hi there -

Thanks for building on Twitter. Per our recent blog post we can confirm that posting identical or substantially similar content to multiple accounts is not permitted.

Do not (and do not allow your users to) simultaneously post identical or substantially similar content to multiple accounts. For example, your service should not permit a user to select several accounts they control from which to publish a given Tweet.

This applies regardless of whether the Tweets are published to Twitter at the same time, or are scheduled/queued for future publication.

As an alternative to posting identical content, you can Retweet content from one account from the other accounts you wish to share that post from. This should only be done from a small number of distinct accounts that you directly control. Please note that bulk, aggressive, or very high-volume automated Retweeting is not permitted under the Automation Rules, and may be subject to enforcement actions.
