    There's only 1 piece of online tool that I've ever found that does this and it's Grabinbox. Hootsuite cannot even do this simple feature, so help please!

    What I want to be able to do is this.

    1) Select a tweet of mine that I'd like RTing to my other accounts.
    2) Then select the accounts that I want to carry out that RT (I currently have over 60 accounts)
    3) Either RT from them all instantly, or schedule the RT for a future date and time

    Now obviously, the tool needs all of my Twitter accounts to be authorised to be able to do this, but I'm yet to find something that can do this as an actual RT (not an old styled RT @username way)

    Can anybody help? Hootsuite doesn't do this.

    Another feature I'd like is where I upload a text file of, say, 200 tweets and it'll drip feed those tweets over X hours or X tweets per day, where I select the daily limit.

    Mate, Hootsuite doesn't RT like that they've even said so in their feature requests / help forum.

    The nearest you get is a "RT @Username {tweet goes here}" type RT, which as I stated in the OP isn't what I want.

    There's the Buffer extension that will enable you to schedule future tweets and retweets and those you want to retweet. Unfortunately, I think it only works on Chrome browsers. I'm not sure if it's compatible with Firefox and if whether or not they have a different version for other browsers.

    I've emailed Buffer and they say it's possible, but for some reason they only allow 1 Twitter account on the free version. $10/month up to 12 accounts and then $299/month for 100. Quite a strange jump from 12 to 100 and $10 to $299. Also strange that they don't allow the free version to use 2 Twitter accounts because then you can test the RT scheduling and be more likely to upgrade when you see that it works.

    Will see if the API makes a difference to what I currently use. If it doesn't, then I'm fine, I won't need to use Buffer.

    I definitely know there are tools out there which do this but
    they are pricey and you have to know where to look. I'll try
    and find one that I used in the past but it did cost me like
    $300. Are you sure you can't do the scheduling via HootSuite
    though?

    I'm not gonna tell you BS or Twitter sites that have nothing to do with what you are asking.
    However, I think you may find the following site useful.

    The only site I've ever found for retweets is called
    Code:
    roundteam.co
    Essentially you connect a Twitter account ONCE (One or more of your retweet accounts) and from then on it will automatically retweet every Tweet from any Twitter account you choose. It can also retweet any tweet that has a certain hashtag and it has a few filters/settings. Unfortunately, it may lack some of the scheduling options you are looking for, but I think you'll find it useful.

    I have about smaller 5 twitter accounts with less than 2k followers set to automatically retweet every tweet from my 50k follower main account.

    if you were ok with going with bots, tweet demon and tweet frenzy both have this feature built in.

    I've had a look at this and it works, but it says I can only have 5 RT accounts, which isn't anywhere near enough.

    TweetDemon does retweets and posts. The only problem with retweets is - you have to manually scrape links from your account and each link/tweet could be retweeted only once by each of accounts. So if it'll be some link scaper available to automate the process it'll save a lot of time. Posting from text file is very easy with TweetDemon

    With the tool I use currently, I can:

    1) See how many natural retweets each tweet in my account has had
    2) Then manually select the most retweeted tweets and schedule a retweet to any of my accounts at any time and on any day

    It's bloody superb, but I've been told the API update will prevent it from working. I've not seen anything come close to this. Hootsuite haven't even included this basic feature and Buffer comes close, but it's way expensive and doesn't do it as well - for instance you have to use the add-on and actually login to the account via Twitter. Even then you'd have to look at each tweet separately to see how many natural retweets it had had.

    I guess part n parcel of Internet Marketing is coming up against these small obstacles and finding alternative ways to overcome them.

    I ideally only want to be using Tweet Demon for a follow/unfollow to build more accounts which then can act as Retweeters for my main accounts, as well as tweeting a queued list of tweets.

    i only have about 15 twitter accounts. I am willing to pay for a source that will mass retweet my stuff from my accounts in 2 and 3 tier methods.

    willing to pay money for a bot that has only the retweet feature. it has to be the same as tweet adder 3's, retweets the most recent tweet from a list of usernames from each account.
