    .....just wondering if anyone is interested in my self-hosted Twitter status updater?

    You give it a text file full of accounts in the format username:password and then via the (very basic) admin panel you add tweets.

    This is all cron driven - every so many minutes (you specify in the cron job), the script will select a random useraccount and a random tweet and then post it.

    If you have 100s of accounts, the updates look more natural as the same account won't get hit every other minute :)

    I tested this across 10 accounts and so far they are all still working - I tried it on a single account and that got suspended after 8 weeks :)

    Anyway, of you want a look at the admin front end where you can add and delete tweets feel free to go to

    Code:
    http://demo-sites.info/twitads-cp/cp/index.php
    
    No tweets will be fired out as I have deleted the cron job :)

    If anyone is interested then I will zip it all up and upload to the download section.

    You will need PHP, MySQL and the ability to run cron jobs.

    This script will then run 24/7 without any intervention - you just add and delete Tweets as and when you want to :)

    I am asking if anyone is interested before I zip everything up and write instructions just because there are lots of Twitter tools out there at the moment and not sure if anyone can be assed with another one!

    I will be developing it a bit further to make it an online multiuser script in the future as well - so hopefully that will get a bit of cash in - if you want to donate cash, however, I will not say no :D

    I am off to work now so won't be around for about 8 hours to zip it up if anyone does have an interest!

    @fatboy I'm certainly interested AND I KNOW OTHERS COULD POSSIBLY AS WELL... And yeah your Right there's TONS of T-Solutions around and most are web hosted:( I would like to check out yours for the fact that I could Self host it.

    Getting 100 T accts up and running in a natural mode is Exactly what I'm doing know now but would like to automate it a bit.

    thx for your post and offer.

    peace out!
