    -----Realized I posted this in wrong section----- Mod, please delete

    Been lurking/haphazardly participating for a while in here but this is my first tutorial. Here's a quick, to-the-point way to use yahoo pipes to make an auto twitter account. Yahoo Pipes is pretty powerful and you can do alot more things using the pre-built scripts they already have. You can also build your own. Maybe you're creative and can combine that with whatever else tools you may have. Feel free to suggest below.

    What you need:
    Twitter Account
    Yahoo Account
    Hootsuite/Twitterfeed account

    In the pipe posted below, just type in a term like 'internet marketing' then it will pull in recent news articles from a bunch of different sources. Grab the RSS feed from the results and plug that into hootsuite. Use the option to like distribute content once every 3 hours or 6 hours so it doesn't look too spammy or post more often if that's your forte. It will be automated forever. Here's the yahoo pipe. Browse other pipes there too:

    (Looks like I can't post a link yet. Instead, go to Yahoo Pipes [Google it] then search for "Google News, Yahoo! News, Wikinews, NY Times National News by search term", and click the first result. If someone wants to post that link below feel free.)

    Legit question. To be honest, I haven't used this to monetize. I use this for my legitimate startups that I run to constantly be putting out fresh content. Takes alot to keep up with my Twitter account sometimes but I still want to put stuff out to keep it active and get follower count up. I'd imagine you can do something like a pipe of other people's user names who put out highly shareable content, tweet there stuff, add shareable top news content, then add your own affilitate products in between your auto tweets. Or something like that.

    There's a few youtube videos that go into pretty good detail about it. Also, there's always Google. What specifically do you want to know more about?
