    Okay, here's a scenario.

    You have an RSS feed with 20 posts.

    You want to set it to post 1 post per day on Twitter.

    After 20 days, it will finish and stop.

    You want it to start from the beginning again.

    You want the process to be automatic.

    How do you do it?

    No, I didn't.

    I doubt IFTTT can do it on its own, since it's trigger-based, and there won't be any triggers. It'll be just a passive RSS feed sitting there with 20 posts on it.

    Combining Buffer and IFTTT, I logged into Buffer just now, but I really can't see any way to do what I want with these 2 individually or by combining them...

    For those that know, Wordpress has a plugin called Revive Old Post, which I believe does exactly what I want. It will tweet old posts again and again over time, automatically...

    But what I'm actually looking for is how to do that using non-wordpress sites. In my case, blogger.

    It makes most sense to somehow do this with the RSS Feed, considering all the posts are there on the feed. I just can't figure out how to do it. I can't figure out what program/site/method/black magic to use...
