Stance on DM Retweeter Bot


I would like to know if it’s acceptable to operate a bot that retweets every private message it receives (under a private account). I’ve read the guidelines and I think it’s ok, but I wanted to double check.

As for whether it’s feasible, I’ve asked the question here



It’s best to ask specific policy questions to platform operations directly through

A user has a reasonable expectation that when they send a DM (private message) it will remain private. By retweeting (or tweeting in this case since you would be taking a message that is not a tweet and making it a tweet), you are creating a scenario where you could easily surprise users or violate their intention of privacy.
