    What is the best way to copy tweets? I have a way to do it now but if the account I copy from goes down then I'm left posting dead links. Is there anyway to copy tweets and at the same time make the tweet unique so it won't die later?

    You shouldn't post tweets from other accs 1:1, you'll be ghosted from Twitter search.

    Not sure what you want to achieve exactly, what links are you talking about? Do you repost links what others posted?

    Well then how do big accounts copy tweets from other accounts? I often see the same exact tweet across multiple accounts. And when I say link I mean when an account is banned on twitter then the tweet I copied dies too. Not exactly a link but the picture and description of the tweet dies.

    Wait, i i think i got it now, you mean retweeting. That's fine, just don't go overboard with it, mix it with regular tweets.
    At first i though you meant copying/scraping tweets from another account and posting them as your own.

    Answering to your question, if you retweet a tweet of an account which later gets disabled/deleted, of course the tweet, the link, the profile picture, the whole account which posted the tweet won't be accessible anymore. That's natural, with retweeting you cannot avoid that.

    No I don't mean retweeting, I mean copying word for word the exact tweet and picture. I see huge accounts with millions of followers copy each other's tweets word for word and it shows up as their own tweets.

    Ok, so i don't get it again. lol

    What you're saying happens, but if you post a tweet as your own, you post the text and upload the pic on your own, from this point of view, it doesn't matter if it's copied content or no. If a tweet shows up as your own and not as a retweet, why would any part of that disappear, if let's say the account you copied from gets disabled/deleted? Or do you mean posting someone else's tweet as your own by posting the url to the tweet (https://twitter.com/username/status/12345678910111213)?

    Yes that's exactly what I mean sorry for the confusion. I copy the url of the tweet by using a tweet scraper and load it into massplanner as a csv file. But when the accounts get banned the tweet shows a dead link. There has to be a better way than this because I see big accounts copy tweets all the time.

    Besides what you're doing, i think the only other way, if you scrape the content (the text of the tweet, the pic/video if there's any) and post it as your own. There are tweet scraper tools out there, but as i mentioned it, as a punishment you'll be excluded from the search, so your tweets won't turn up there, only your followers will be able to see them, unless you alter the tweets and make them unique.
