    Recently twitter have become much better at exersising the Ban Hammer and weeding out accounts. Further to this I am pretty sure that everyone is sick of thinking of "Normal" sounding tweets (how many or you have done "walking the dog?) to put in tweet later. So here is my solution to hide your account really well and also give you a high quality feed to post your links to.

    Quite simple really - imitation:

    1. Find someone with a good quality feed and plenty of followers
    2. go to search.twitter.com
    3. go "Advanced search"
    4. "from this person" - enter username
    5. put "a" in the search box
    6. go to RSS feed at top of page
    7. Right click and "Copy link location"
    8. Go to hxxp://twitterfeed.com/
    9. Register an account - no email verification ;)
    10. Go to "Create new feed"
    11. Paste feed into Feed URL
    12. go to "Advanced settings"
    13. Make sure it is set to "description only"
    14. Adapt to your preference
    15. Leave to its own devices
    White label tweeting done. Now you can also do another step to make your life easier. Have an account with no followers. This will be your "Master account" follow the process outlined above to take an RSS feed of this account - this will be where you post the tweets with your links - if you set this up across a "few" accounts it means you can post to all of them quickly and easily.

    As a side note, the reason you need to use the twitter search approach is that you can take a direct feed from an account and post it back to twitter.

    As a side note you want to avoid leaving @replies for people as this will highlight the 'target's followers to what you are doing. Best to choose people who don't use them or alternativly find a way to exclude them :)

    NOTE: I have tested this technique but not on a mass scale. Please test for yourself before a mass roll out and post your feedback.
