    is it possible to use the crawl feature to copy from another persons tweet and automatically tweet it? if so how do i do it? I did with the url of the username before but it also wanted to tweet other things as well?

    There is nothing of real documentation pursuant to how to use the crawl feature. It would be awesome to know how to utilize it. I would suggest a test run with a bunk account. You may easily discover it's use, but from the limited documentation I can confirm it CAN be used to scrape tweets or other "information" from other pages and feeds. This can include a twitter account, but I think it was generally more intended to use with feeds where you might grab certain content from within a feed such as an image, or a product description, etc... It's basically a super weak and limited scraping tool, but I'm sure someone knows how to use it properly.

    I suspect it's a very powerful overall feature, and one that with proper utilization can make all the difference in the effectiveness of twitter campaigns. I find FL to be generally very lacking in customization. While it does have a number of great features it can be quite challenging and convoluted to put an actual project together. I hope the software continue to improve.
