    So now that Twitterfeed has curled it's toes up what are people using for using RSS feeds to auto-tweet? I've not had a ton of joy with IFTTT, Buffer or Dlvr.

    Or has the age of owning a shit-ton of Twitter accounts that auto-tweet and grow by themselves over?

    Hope not as I use auto tweet, Twitter seems to be on a purge at the moment, maybe they're cleaning it up for the sale

    Never heard of Twitterfeed and your own post has 2 suggestions that I've also never heard of.

    IFTTT should work well. I know you said you've had no luck but I've always found it works well with RSS.

    Yahoo Pipes was shut down because of a change in direction at Yahoo, I'm guessing Twitterfeed just wasn't making any money. It was crushingly slow.

    I guess if you don't spend a ton of time using RSS to automate tweets this thread might not thrill you :)

    I find that some rss campaigns quite simply just never run.

    What sort of frequencies are you working with?

    If you are just looking for content, can't you just find active sub-reddits in your niche and auto-post to twitter via IFTTT.
