Or how can a bot send status updates about a trend (meta trend discussion) without being accused of “posting unrelated tweets to trends in order to get attention” ?
I’d like my bot to include a reference to a trending hashtag or topic without injecting into that trend. The goal is not to piggyback any trend but simply to find the best way to reference a trend. For example with hashtags, could removing the # and, say, enclosing the tag into square brackets [sometrendytag] work? What about topics? Is there some best practice with this other than using out-of-band communications?
