    I have a little setup that swipes RSS feeds, breaks their link and adds in mine and auto posts to Twitter- not to difficult and drives traffic like a MF. But with some of the new rules and crackdowns they have been putting in place- I'm wondering if that's going to cause issues.

    I only post 2-3 an hour from each feed for a total of 20-30/hr and have a decent balance of non-link dummy tweets going out. Most of the time there are only a few duplicate tweets (minus my link, of course) floating around out there and since I use the root source of the rss, I usually get in before any RT's start flying around. I am using one main account right now but plan to add more.

    Am I headed for issues with the Twitter Bosses?

    you'll be just fine.

    Im doing the same also. Sent out about 250 tweets/day quickly got my account suspended and this was an aged account with 100 friends. That only a test, Now I just need to scale it down and spread it out through several accounts.

    Yahoo pipes comes to mind if somebody would like to do this - those interested should have a look over the download section ;)

    -get the rss from a site
    -sign into yahoo pipes
    -use fetch feed on the left and put in the rss
    -use regex to take apart the rss and replace the link (how that was done, i'm not too sure. working on this. if LIXXX can give me clues, that would be great)
    -connect all boxes together with last connection to output
    -save, then get the NEW rss that was made by pipes
    -sign into twitterfeed, put in your rss, attach to your twitter accounts

    now when the site updates, they will automatically be tweeted to your accounts.


    LIXXX, i've got fetch feed > split 1st feed and 2nd feed
    1st feed > filter out link > union > create rss > output
    2nd feed > regex (i don't know the code to just grab the link only) > union > create rss > output

    am i close haha?
