    I want to set up an application for puting a hashtag in Trending Topic list. I used a php application with oauth.

    Like this;

    $connection = new TwitterOAuth(CONSUMER_KEY, CONSUMER_SECRET, $access, $secret);
    $connection->post('statuses/retweet/'.$rtid);

    I have 1000 accounts and all of them are connected to that application. But when I try to post a tweet with it, the hashtag doesn't shown in TT list. Even if I RT a hashtag on TT, it seems that hashtag doesn't stay there. I think my system spams the hashtags.

    How can I put a word into TT list? There are some people does this just fine. But I can't. Is it because all retweets are being sent from same IP? If it is, how people does this job?

    You need to make sure your ips match the country you're targeting. The reputation/history of your accounts matters as well.

    Oh I forget about IP match. Thanks for this. Some people says Trending Topic list doesn't include tweets/RTs from apps. Is it true?

    I am not sure if that is true but I haven't heard that before. It's interesting to know if it is actually true. There are a variety of reasons why topics don't make it on the trending list and I never thought this could also be the case.

    I've heard about copyright. I'm posting a hashtag that was never posted before. Then I'm making FV and RT to that post with app.

    By the way thank you very much you your answers and spending time for me.
