Since you are a social media enthusiast, you might have heard of all the bad things people do to misuse Twitter. Be it the spammy affiliate Tweets, cam girls or people trying to influence voters’ decisions, there is always someone looking to game the system.
Social platforms keep taking actions to limit such uses on a regular basis. In 2018, Facebook limited the ability to customize the title and description of a shared link. On the other hand, Twitter comes up with some really strict rules.
Twitter announced in February 2018 that they will make a few policy changes to prevent bots and fake accounts from using Twitter.
In order to make sure that your account is 100% safe and complies with every single Twitter guideline, we have made some changes to RecurPost as well.
We have always been in compliance with Twitter’s rules and keeping it that way empowers us to assure you that you can use RecurPost without violating any terms and policies and without any worries.
So, what’s changing in Twitter’s TOS, and how does it affect your RecurPost account?
The first change is that you cannot post the same Tweet on multiple Twitter accounts.
This change prevents someone from creating thousands of phony accounts that can get a hashtag trending on Twitter by posting it on every account in one go.
Any scheduling tool out there needs to follow these guidelines. If they are not doing so, your account is at risk with them.
Fortunately, RecurPost is in total compliance and your account is totally safe with us. Due to this change, you can not select multiple accounts while posting. You can only post one Tweet on one Twitter account and thus your account will be safe.
The second change is that you can’t even post the same Tweet on the same account more than once.
Yes, that means recycling is dead (read on though…we have a new feature for you).
You may have written an evergreen blog that will benefit the readers forever, but you will only be able to share it on Twitter once.
How is RecurPost affected?
We at RecurPost are going to comply with Twitter’s guidelines. Hence, we will not be able to share the same Tweet on your account multiple times. Also, we will not be able to post the same Tweet on multiple accounts.
However, we have found a workaround that will let you recycle the same tweet again and again. You will need to add variations to your Tweet. While your image, video, or link can stay the same, you will be able to add multiple variations to your message.
Each variation of your message will be considered a new Tweet and hence every variation can go out once. We will also tell you how many variations you have and how many of them have already been posted.
You can then simply add more variations or edit the ones that have gone out. Every new variation will go out on Twitter just fine.
This way, we will continue your recycling while keeping your account safe.
In a nutshell,
RecurPost will let you add variations for each Tweet. You can always add more variations to a Tweet at any time.
As long as there is one variation that has not been already Tweeted, your Tweets will go out as usual. Once we have posted every variation, you will need to add more variations for your Tweets to go out as per your schedule.
Thank you for your support. We will make sure your account is 100% safe and your social strategy is executed uninterrupted without requiring a lot of time from you. A positive side of this Twitter change is that you will see more meaningful results from Twitter.
