    Scenario:

    I have a txt file (notepad) with 1,000 tweets/lines of content.

    I want to convert those into an RSS Feed and then randomly tweet 1 of them every X minutes, through Twitter, but won't delete it.

    Any ideas? Are there any apps out there or websites which will do the converting? Once I have the RSS Feed, I'd need to be able to randomly post any of the 1000, but I'm thinking dlvrit/twitterfeed will only look at the top, say, 100 of the RSS Feed.

    I know Tweet Adder would do it, but I imagine it would take a lot of RAM. I'd prefer this to run on it's own, without the need for any sofware running on my VPS.

    You can make those text lines like a posts on wordpress site or blog, and use plugin Tweet My Old Post, he randomly choose posts and publish on twitter in time frame what you set up. Also those posts you can post over twitterfeed.com.

    Hi, that´s a great idea TZ2011... but there´s a way to automatically post the 1000 lines? or do we have to make this post manually?

    Are you referring to this?

    I get what you're saying.... 50 tweets would need 50 posts.

    The thing about Twitterfeed is I thought it'll only post once in an RSS? It won't post the same thing twice?

    We can make a CSV file with the 1000 lines txt.

    Then we create a blog, no need to be a fashion one, it´s just one more tool in the system, we then make the 1000 post to this blog using the csv importer and set up a rss feed from our blog.

    And then, using whether the tweet my old post plugin or directly using twitterfeed (best option i think) we set up a schedule set of tweets from the blog rss feed.

    problem solved

    The thing is though, as far as I'm aware Twitterfeed won't tweet a RSS feed twice.

    I want those 1000 to randomly post, and now and again the same one will be tweeted again... but to my followers, most won't likely remember it, so it'll look like a unique tweet.

    Well.... That´s a problem. But it has solutions. Not elegant ones, but at least solutions. You can either make various blogs, or you can mask the same rss using other rss compile services, or you can duplicate your post in the same blog, making them a new rss entry. Just think out of the box... it is possible.

    And by the way, 1000 tweets take a long time to be tweeted. You don´t need to repeat 1000 tweets every day or every week, that would be annoying to your followers

    You can make those words selections like a articles using running a weblog services systems site or weblog, and use device Tweets posts My Old Publish, he at unique select articles and post on twitter in period what you set up.
