Is it safe to automatically reply to tweets using spintax?

    On Instagram, I've had great success using a very well spun and targeted spintax comment to target my niche, but I'm wondering if this approach works just as well on Twitter too?

    I worry because a user can check your profile and see all of your tweet replies and quickly figure out that you're using spintaxed comments. Of course Twitter's spam algos probably can't detect it, but a human could. On Instagram there's no way to see comment history of a particular user, so this was never something to consider.

    Any thoughts?

    Just use a secondary account if you're worried about people seeing your replies. There isn't really anything you can do about that. One of my burner accounts has replied over 50k times now with a link to my site

    I scrape a few thousand usernames, then use my bots reply generator to spin them into unique replies. I use 6+ different shortened links and keep a 45-70 second delay between each replay and I'm able to keep it running for days at a time

    Anything along these lines will work just fine without any problems
    Code:
    @username {Hi|Hey|Hello|Howdy|Hello there|Hi there|Hey}{!|!!|.} please {check out|look at|stop by|go to} {my|our} {website|site} {goo.gl/1JZB6g|goo.gl/2JZB6g|goo.gl/3JZB6g|goo.gl/4JZB6g|goo.gl/5JZB6g|goo.gl/6JZB6g}

    I think it depends on what you call a "reply". If every reply contains a link to your website, it's almost an ad, so it'll call much attention, but if 50% of your replies don't contain a link, so it'll call less attention (you can use it not only to advertise, but to create reputation in your niche or get new followers). Like I said, mix "information replies" with "advertising replies", take some good effort to create really great spun message and you should be safe.

    I'd highly suggest not be using URLs in the replies, because it will bring either captcha or an account lock in most cases.

    On Twitter? I never once got a captcha and i'm tweeting 7.5k tweets per day with 100 accs since a few months now all with links, you do the math. Account lock may or may not come, that's hard to tell what causes it, because in most cases you perform different kind of actions, however i'd say, if you don't overdo the tweeting, with urls or without it, doesn't matter much, you won't get locked just because of tweeting.

    The limit set by Twitter is 2.4k tweets per day, it's there for a reason, i wouldn't go any where near that number though. That's 100 tweets/hr, i personally did 10-15 tweets per hour with a few accounts, never had a single issue. If you're in need of tweeting more often, just use multiple accounts.

    To OP: You can always purge your tweets after some time, there are services like this one to do it with a single click. Also if you don't do following and don't already have a big follower base, only people from Twitter search will come across your account practically (or maybe not even those, if you get ghosted from the search), so the chance of getting reported by those few is very small and what if an account/domain gets banned? You register a new one.

    If you want to play this automatized @reply game, you don't really need followers, so it's not really a biggy, if an account goes poof, you don't loose much, you can easily replace it.

    Twitter is not that smart, if it's a really well spun comment, i think you'll have no problems. The worst thing that could happen, if you post the same tweet with multiple accounts or the same tweet with one account over and over again, especially if you make a habit out of it, that the accs temporarily will get ghosted from the search, this last 24 hrs in most cases, however it's not even an issue for you, because you do @reply, so your tweets doesn't have to appear in the search.

    HoNeYBiRD - that kind of post reminds me that I should be doing something with the monster FL setup rig I envisioned and purchased all the parts for last month. I got one account locked, and couldn't unlock it, so I ditched the whole thing instead of staying focused and moving onto a new account. Thanks for reminding me to do things better, but to keep moving forward.
