    Sup everyone, the title says it all. I've searched around trying to find a solid answer but I can't seem to find one. So if anyone knows I'd appreciate a reply. I've seen tons of people on twitter though with just rss post using twitterfeeds or some other method. They haven't been banned so I'm guessing no they don't ban you for only posting that way but maybe I'm wrong...

    TIA

    Make your rss feed with some general stuff like
    {Outside with the {cat|dog|monkey}and it {started to rain DMN|is sunny wie|is boring}

    Ya I was thinking about doing something like that if I have to do so. But it's whole nother step I'd have to take for each account and I'd prolly need to use a program to post it so it's not from twitterfeeds.

    Yeah.. Twitter does bann your account for only posting from rss feeds. Unfortunately.
    I tested it with one account and didn´t even exaggerated it with the posts, but the account was banned after some time.

    That sucks, I have a few accounts that are about 3 weeks old that haven't been banned yet. But I'm now posting random general crap once to twice a day. Hopefully that's enough to stop from getting banned.

    Once or twice a day is totally fine. I was banned because I posted several RSS feeds ;-) sometimes 5-6 a day.

    I use a social bookamrking tool, and to keep the acocunts live for just about all of them, i mix in some general news feeds and some other posts.

    THe tool allows me to post to unlimited accounts at the press of a button, so I only need to write a spinnable comment once, then press send, wait five minutes and 500+ accounts all updated (I have had 4500 accounts at one time)

    Very low account deletion rate <1% but even then some did get deleted. Why? Don't know. Shit happens

    I have a twitter account that auto posts news from my niche via RSS from multiple sites, a new post every 1-2 hours, every 5 hours it posts my product link with a different product each time (related to my niche).

    I have 3000 followers and have been doing this for a while, no spam complaints, just allot of thank yous.

    So if you do it in such a way where it doesn't look like spam, your good to go.
