I developed a twitter bot: @postpiratebot . What it does is:
- Take the note of the top-trending search term on twitter
- Search for tweets containing the top-trending search term
- Take the first tweet from the list of tweets, and re-posts it on my page every 15 minutes
What I’ve done to ensure it doesn’t break the rules is:
Remove all references to other twitter users (@'s) including the author
Remove all hash-tags (#'s)
So the bot is now completely harmless, and doesn’t affect any other users.
But my account keeps getting locked because it violates some rule. Which rule is that?
