    Default Where to bulk upload tweets?!

    Hey guys!

    I've always been using tweetlater to bulk upload my tweets.. unfortunately they changed it a few days ago and now you can bulk upload your tweets only with the paid version of tweetlater.

    Can anyone tell me where I can bulk upload my tweets else?

    apparently hootsuite can do it, im about to check it out in the next few days myself.

    I lost a thread that i thought i subscribed to about a guy on here actually making a script that does it. But i cant find it damn it.

    well just took a look on hootstuite ...
    It seems that it is not possible to bulk upload your tweets.. it's only possible to schedule your tweets.. unfortunately it's not that what I need...

    Isn'T there an other free possibility?

    Twitter Adder Pro can manage your Tweets, it's not as simple as TweetLater was but it can still do the job if you're doing less than 100 Tweets and hour. (API Limits)

    well tweetlater pissed me off. I can't login to my account and they don't respond to my tickets. so I did a little search and found something, modified it and now it fill my needs . Here it is - write your tweets as table entries and set up cron for this.

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    // Set username and password
    $username 'username';
    $password 'password';
    // The message you want to send

    srand ((double) microtime() * 10000000); 
    $input = array ("tweet1""tweet2""tweet3"); 

    $num array_rand($input); 
    $message $input[$num];

    // $message = 'still writing new blog posts';
    // The twitter API address
    $url 'http://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml';
    // Alternative JSON version
    // $url = 'http://twitter.com/statuses/update.json';
    // Set up and execute the curl process
    $curl_handle curl_init();
    curl_setopt($curl_handleCURLOPT_URL"$url");
    curl_setopt($curl_handleCURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT2);
    curl_setopt($curl_handleCURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER1);
    curl_setopt($curl_handleCURLOPT_POST1);
    curl_setopt($curl_handleCURLOPT_POSTFIELDS"status=$message");
    curl_setopt($curl_handleCURLOPT_USERPWD"$username:$password");
    $buffer curl_exec($curl_handle);
    curl_close($curl_handle);
    // check for success or failure
    if (empty($buffer)) {
        echo 
    'message';
    } else {
        echo 
    'success';
    }
    ?>

    Cheers man, If this script can really do what tweetlatter does and also have an option to be able to BULK UPLOAD TWEETS that would be insane!!

    For us guys who dont know exactly how to set this up, Would you be kind enough to post a noob friendly step by step instructions on how to set this up on our servers? And also how to get it set up to bulk upload tweets on different accounts.

    See im sure what most of us want is to be able to upload a whole list of tweets for one account that will automatically post the tweets over a month or so, and then also be able to do the same for another account. A complete set and forget script just like tweet later.

    Can your helpful script do this?

    Ok, so here it's a quick guide. You need a hosting with PHP and cron to use is. It's quite different from tweetlater because it posts random tweets from the tweet table.

    Step 1:
    Put your twitter username and password into the following part of the script:

    $username = 'username';

    $password = 'password';

    For each twitter account you'll need a separate file.

    Step 2:
    Enter your tweets into the following part of the script:

    $input = array ("tweet1", "tweet2", "tweet3");

    for instance it should look like this:

    $input = array ("going to the gym", "reading BHW forum", "having kinky fun with my gf", "listening to MJ songs");

    You can add a lot of these messages. I use about 500-700 for every account and I schedule them to post every 2-3 hours.

    Step 3:
    Save the file as twitter1.php (or anything you want) and upload the .php file to your web hosting account so you'll get http://yoursite.com/twitter1.php. Now put your browser to it. You should see a simple message - "success". Now take a look at you twitter timeline - a new random message is posted. And the best part - the footer of this message shows "from the web" instead of "tweetlater" or whatever.

    Step 4:
    Automate the process: set up a cron job on your hosting account to run http://yoursite.com/twitter1.php every 2 or 3 hours. You can do it through cPanel - read your hosting provider wiki/faq how to do it.

    That's all. It's simple but effective. The hardest part is to get a list of messages. Here's how I did this in... MS Excel

    1. write a list of 10-15 verb-like phrases such as "thinking of", "writing article related to", "browsing the net for" and put in the first column of an excel sheet.

    2. get a list of noun-like keywords related to your niche from g00gle keyword tool and put it in second column, something like this: "weight loss", "acai berry diet" etc.

    3. join these two colums using excel's funcion. you'll get results in the third column: "thinking of weight loss", "browsing the net for acai berry diet" etc. <- these are perfect tweets!

    4. add results from third column to the script $input = array ( ...) You can try to use Notepad++ for this. Remember that your tweets must be in the following format: "message1", "message2".

    I hope this is helpful.

    Looks good. I'm surprised this thread hasn't disappeared to the "Donated" forum.

    Would it be possible to write a script that imports that arrays from a text or cvs? Copy and pasting each one is a bit time consuming.

    I would just make a list of one post per line like: (10 0r ten thousand = same thing)

    going to the gym
    reading BHW forum
    having kinky fun with my gf
    listening to MJ songs

    then use find/replace to find and delete the line returns and add the quotes and commas back to:
    "going to the gym", "reading BHW forum", "having kinky fun with my gf", "listening to MJ songs" <-- with NO line returns
    that it needs for this format.

    Here's about 1500 tweets but you'll have to clean them up before you can use in a feed file .....

    Code:

    Not really. I asked the same question and from what I can tell any method that posts with the API will show that unless the app is registered with twitter, etc which will then show as "from app" ..

    You have to register your app with twitter which will then show the tweets as "from your app" .....

    Not quite sure I understand what you are asking .....

    You don't want to get rid of the spaces in the phrases .....

    But if you DO want to remove the spaces then search for:
    ""<--- space (without quotes)
    and replace with nothing - meaning do not enter anything in the replace field.

    If you are wanting to add the quote/comma/space/quote as in my example then search for "^p" (without quotes) or whatever your program recognizes as the carriage return or new line symbol which finds all the ends of lines and replace with:
    ", " <-- exactly

    That will remove the carriage returns and put the ", " in between each phrase. You will then need to add " to the beginning of the first phrase and make sure you only have " at the end of the last phrase.

    HTH

    I still don't understand so let me give you an example so I have my text file with a few phrases (one on every row) so it's
    abcd
    1234
    ABCD
    XXXX
    and I wanna turn this into
    "abcd", "1234", "ABCD", "XXXX"
    so first of all what program do I use for this? can I use a plain txt file? or word or what?
    and second, how does the program knows what to replace? I mean first I'll replace abcd but then I have to replace again 1234 and then ABCD and so on (and if I have 100000 rows that's kinda time consuming ) and I already tried to replace the blanks (spaces) but I can't (at least in txt I can't) can you give me the exact example for
    abcd
    1234
    ABCD
    XXXX
    Tell me what exactly you write and what do you do and what program u use

    LOL! That would DEFINITELY be a problem!

    It is only good for what it's named "notepad", and really isn't all that for notes LOL!

    A MUCH better replacement would be notepad2 and if you are "text intensive" like me then NoteTabPro would be the way to go. The ONLY thing I have found NoteTabPro missing is random sorting .....

    adamlm thanks for the find and your work.

    So I have done everything and it worked correctly randomly posting tweets through a few hundred hundred choices however when I loaded a few thousand I got the error of:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting ')' in /data/17/1/41/141/1693630/user/1827283/htdocs/twitter1.php on line 16

    My understanding is that it doesnt like a charachter? Any ideas what charachters give problems other then "carriage returns" which I have already stripped out.

    Thank you,

    I would strip out all but alphanumericals ..... then you will be sure there is no problems.

    I'm working on one that pulls from a text file and can run random or sequentially ..... couple days maybe .....

    I am having trouble getting the cron job setup.

    do you just add hxxp://mysite.com.twitter1.php to the cronjob?

    And do you have to set the chmod for the twitter1.php to 777 ?

    Thanks

    yupie... this is a cute method.. tested and working..

    The cron I am using for another thing is...
    curl http://www.yourwebsite.com/yourfilename.php

    Think it works, not tested, going to try. I have around 10K urls to put randomnly in twitter.

    Questions:
    1. Is setting cron for every 5 minute or 10 minutes is good?
    2. How can I post 2-3 urls at once? Is it ok?

    Thanks..

    1) I wouldn't set it that often myself. Maybe every 73 minutes or so .....

    2) Setup 2-3 copies of it ..... '

    1) i wouldn't set cron for every 10 mins as this would activate the script and post a tweet every 10 mins which is bad if you are dropping links every 10 mins, you will get kicked from twitter pretty quick.

    2) Well to avoid me getting my accounts banned when i do this im going to do this: set up a an account, write up a ton of tweets and set it to post a tweet every 2 hours, and drop a URL every 5 hours.

    That way you are only dropping tweets about 12 times a day and dropping a URL only about 4 times..... which should be ok and not get you banned.

    Having not tested this script, i can already see a flaw. Because this script randomly chooses tweets and NOT IN ORDER it could drop more URLs in a day than i want, also tweeting DUPLICATE tweets. Both can get you banned pretty quick if your not careful.

    Does anyone know how to modify the script so that it posts in ORDER and not randomly?

    Having thought about that for a second ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ i can easily set up a cron to post LINKS only and another for regular TWEETS only...

    Problem solved, hopefully, providing that i put in a lot of tweets for each cron, that way it should have a HUGE selection, making less chance for a duplicate post...

    Still would be nice if there was some way to modify the script to post in order tho????

    Man, every 10 minutes means, not every 10 seconds.
    In every 10 minutes a person have updates.. So I dont think any problem updating tweets in 10 minutes...

    Dont know about the url thingy, its shortened with bit.ly
    I have setup cron for every 15 minutes here, giving a link and its description. It posting as bit ly encoded link with description.

    Instead of running a cron job I used a page refresher and set it for 45 seconds refreshing the URL of my hosted file which then updates Twitter. This gave me almost 100 tweets a hour. I let it run overnight and woke up to 100 updates and 150 new followers.

    On another note I have file that is still giving me the error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting ')' in /data/17/1/41/141/1693630/user/1827283/htdocs/twitter1.php on line 16

    And for the life of me I can't figure out what in the text is bad. How can I scrub out
    alphanumericals? This file has about 100,000 tweets.

    Thank you,

    load it up in dreamweaver, The tweets with no problems will be red, and problem areas will be black. In the black areas, retype your " marks or just delete that tweet.

    I am using Note Tab Pro...

    "Line 16 is the very first line of all my tweets and the last line is 58,150 with about 93,000 tweets in between. Line 16 is absolutely fine.

    In the script in this post is there a max number of tweets allowed?
