Okay, first things first. I am not a black hat marketing person and automating aspects of who you are online needs to be carefully planned and details need to be considered. From my point of view, Twitter, or any social media activities really, is something that should be done authentically. Twitter is my online home. Please don’t abuse automation services like these to create a botnet or spam people.
I came up with the idea for automatic tweets primarily as a support for people who are starting out their professional Twitter presence. Such Twitter newbies often want to keep a tiny bit of tweets going out to their profile every once in a while, so it doesn’t look deserted until they got thoroughly used to everything and start using it on daily bases. This is without doubt, incredibly useful for starters but also it requires a bit of care and fine-tuning on the start. That’s why I put this guide up here with only a few simple steps and some background information.
There are also other useful tools out there that support professional Twitter influencers in many ways, but these usually cost that kind of money that new users wouldn’t invest. I hope the following steps on Twitter automation are useful for you.
Step 1: Finding the right feed
What should you let a machine tweet out? You’re not going to verify the content that is posted under your name so, if you’re not automating your own content, you better make sure that nothing inappropriate or awkward hits your feed. Most of all popular publishers offer some kind of feed syndication that you can use for this purpose. You just need to copy the RSS URL into your clipboard or note it down elsewhere for step three.
