    Can someone please point out the shortfalls that I may be missing in this idea?

    I thought of setting up a "Sports" themed autoblog into which I would feed the sports feeds from the top 20 news sites (cnn, cbs, abc, reuters, etc).

    I'd set the autoblog to reprint 4-6 paragraphs of the original content and then provide a linkback to the original article.

    SEO is not an issue here because traffic is going to come from Twitter.

    To do that I'll just stuff the RSS feed from the autoblog into EasyTweets and it will autopublish Tweets that link back to my autoblog (which will of course have my PPC and CPA ads).

    I then round up 10,000+ followers who are tweeting "sports" themed keywords with either EasyTweetsPro or one of the other targeted auto-following services.

    Do this x10 different accounts over 6 months and you have 100,000 followers who have the potential to click through to your site.

    Can someone point out any holes in this? Republishing content from big sites like CNN, does that bring down more heat than republishing content from independant blogs? Are there other things I need to be factoring in here?
