We want to be good corporate citizens - we are not spammers, we just want to know the right way of posting tweets using the Twitter API. We’ve removed references to all handles because we read that this is one of the issues that could cause Twitter to lock or suspend an account. Our tweets do have hashtags but they vary depending on the type of tweet being sent. We would also like to embed links to underlying data if that is acceptable. Furthermore, in many cases, the wording of our tweets may be similar but the data changes for a lot of our tweets, is this going to be a problem with the API?
Is this behavior allowable under the Twitter API or do we need to change anything? We know that you can’t send tweets greater than 280 characters, but we may have cause to send extended tweets from time to time and break them apart. What are the best practices for doing that? Can we put in a counter, can we add hashtags to each one? What is the best method of doing that so we don’t run afoul of the Twitter API?
If you would like to take a look at some of our Twitter feeds, here is the link: Twitter.com/rtfilings. or @rtfilings.
Thanks for your attention,
