I am creating products, some of which will be related to trending topics on twitter, and would like to be able to post notifications that these products are available for purchase, using any relevant hashtags. I am trying to figure out if there is a scenario where I can do this without violating the Twitter policy. A few questions:
- If my application’s twitter account posts an advertisement of a product related to a trending hashtag using the API, is it a violation of the policy? Can I make the same posts manually without violating the policy?
- If the users of my web/mobile application have connected their twitter accounts and they make a purchase of a product related to a trending hashtag, and they agree to send a tweet of their purchase from their own account (but automated through my application), is that a violation of the policy?
- Is this policy applicable to trending hashtags at all levels of granularity (global, national, local)?? How do I determine if the hashtag in question would constitute a violation of the policy?
