Bot accounts and links... Just retweet? Retweet, delete, repeat? Unique shorteners?

    I asked this once before with a lot more specifics, but the wording was confusing, so I'll keep it simple.

    Have master acct. Want to retweet across hundreds of bot accts.

    Just retweet?

    Retweet, delete, and repeat?

    Do mix of retweets and bots doing their own original tweets of same link?

    Use different link shorteners, or url suffixes that resolve to same url?

    Still not clear what the right plan is here.

    TBH, you still don't sound very clear to me, but I think I got a bit of what you're trying to say. Now, my view on the matter is that if you try to use the same accounts for retweeting every single time, it'll probably be a matter of time before your account will be seen as something spammy...

    If you have a master account and your wanting your bot accounts for advertising I would say always without a doubt retweet then delete, The reason being is when people see the tweet they will see it from your master account and not from your bot accounts pushing any potential followers to your master account instead of the others.

    Well, yeah. Retweet, delete, repeat would be ideal. I'm just not sure how much of that I can get away with. I don't want to lose hundreds of accounts for getting it wrong.

    Does the unique link thing matter? Can you do unique links with YT? Isn't the vid link a special case that needs to look the same or it won't be treated as a video? Suffixes?

    I'm just trying to dial in NEAR maximum effectiveness without getting banned.

    Don't really care if folks start to see the bots as spammy. If they liked the first vid, they're a new fan and won't mind the second. If they didn't like the first, they weren't going to like the second anyway.

    DO care about getting accts banned... at least in bulk.

    If retweet and delete, then... certain tool being used to do the deleting? We're talking well over 100 accts here. What sort of frequency? Just retweet each time, or mix it up somehow?

    Also planning on logging into each and doing original tweet as well.

    Is it an issue if I pin the retweet (or original with same link) for each acct so all the new followbacks see it on top?

    I assumed that just meant that BEFORE it's deleted, it will be a retweet as opposed to a tweet, so lending authority (and potentially traffic) to the original author. If it's deleted, followers of the bot won't see it at all (unless someone else has already retweeted the retweet), right?

    So... anyway, what sort of delete / retweet frequency, and is there any sort of precautions I should be taking about the link url's?

    OK, so retweet, delete, repeat.

    Problem is... FL doesn't do delete. How are you guys doing your deletes? Did one round by hand of 125 accts plus one handwritten tweet and pin each...and it took me 6 hours.

    Need to automate.

    Frequency of deletion? Ban triggers I should be aware of?

    I actually just posted this problem in a thread, sorry for making a new one and not contributing here first.

    I believe the word you are looking for is unretweet, not delete. You won't be deleting the tweet from your master account(s), just unretweeting that tweet from your slaves. This way you can retweet it again and have it show up at the top of your followers news feeds. I use this process with tweetdeck but am currently also trying to automate this with FL. You are correct in saying that FL does not have unretweeting, so what I have done (and asked if this is ok to do in the forum) is using a 3rd party app to unretweet for me. These apps will unretweet after 10mins (or a time frame you specify).

    Here are 3 unretweeting services that I have used
    rtdeleter.com - I have heard they occasionally post their own ads, but not confirmed.
    rtcleanter.com - Great service, only setting is 10min but thats fine.
    spamcleaner.co - Great service, but $5 per account is not worth it.

    The question/concern that I have with automating with FL is that I will need to login to each and every PVA and link one of the 3rd party unretweeting services. Well the issue with this is that I will be logging in without a proxy (massive PITA to change proxies constantly to do this). It's a massive PITA already just having to login to each account and manually connect an unretweeting app, especially for many accounts. So my concern is logging in without a proxy even though they are all PVA's and my question is wether or not there is a way to get FL to unretweet for you.

    Hope this helps clear your questions up and give more insight to the issue. Does anyone have any insight to either of our questions/concerns with this setup?

    Need to figure out this unretweet thing ASAP. Am I risking ban by unretweeting, then redoing every half hour?

    Is it an issue that all the accounts are spread across different proxies, yet are using same unretweet service which I'm assuming DOESN't use proxies?
