SocialOomph Discontinues Recurring Tweets

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 1 7

Introduction

 

SocialOomph (formerly TweetLater) announced in their blog Monday, October 12, 2009, that Twitter has informed them that recurring tweets are in violation of the Twitter Terms of Service. The SocialOomph blog post includes the following excerpt from what Twitter sent to SocialOomph:

"Recurring Tweets are a violation no matter how they are done, including whether or not someone pays you to have a special privilege. We don't want to see any duplicate tweets whatsoever. They pollute Twitter, and tools shouldn't be given to enable people to break the rules. Spinnable text seems to just be a way to bypass the rules against duplicate updates and essentially provides the same problems."

-SocialOomph Blog. "Recurring Tweets On Twitter Accounts Have Been Discontinued." SocialOomph.com. SocialOomph, 12 Oct. 2009. Web. 12 Oct. 2009. < http://www.socialoomphblog.com/recurring-tweets/ >.
 

Twitter Duplicate Text

 

Beginning Thursday, October 15, SocialOomph is placing all recurring tweets on pause, apparently giving their customers a chance to get copies of their recurring tweets. From that point, no further recurring tweets can be setup; thus, eliminating a large portion of updates with duplicate text.

Unfortunately, SocialOomph Professional lacks an export feature for its recurring tweets. No problem, Chris Voss, "the Twitter/Social Media Expert, other experts call for help," released his new video "How to get all of your Tweets OFF OF SOCIALOOMPH IN 10 MIN." It's probably a small price to pay if you don't want to risk losing all of your work.

-Voss, Chris. "SocialOomph Is Cancelling Recurring Tweets." TheChrisVossShow.com. The Chris Voss Show, 12 Oct. 2009. Web. 12 Oct. 2009. < http://thechrisvossshow.com/?p=1126/ >.

With SocialOomph Professional, you can schedule recurring tweets with "spinnable" text and @replies. In addition, unlike SocialOomph Start accounts, with SocialOomph Professional the 12 tweets per hour limit does not apply.

Recurring tweets without duplicate text prevention; what's up with the spinnable text option? Actually, why pay a monthly fee for SocialOomph Professional when you can do it all free? In fact, some Twitter Centric Marketing campaigns are even more effective and productive using web browsers with freely developed spreadsheets and macros. Still, fine-tuning those campaigns can be a challenge.

There are many solutions available to aid you with your Twitter-based Social Media Marketing (SMM) campaigns. In fact, to avoid problems due to unforeseen changes, it is best to use more than one method.

Three well-known, affordable solutions are Tweet Adder, Tweet Riches and Twitter Bot Friend Adder. Each package offers the same basic features: auto follow, auto follow back, auto unfollow, auto update, auto reply, auto DM, schedule messages, import followers, follow by keyword, keyword trends, statistics, multiple accounts, proxy usage and more.

I have accounts on 15 revenue sharing websites. Unfortunately, I started on eHow and ended up moving all of my articles on eHow to other sites. Today, I only have about 60 articles out there; 17 here on InfoBarrel.

For the last few months I have been doing development and promotional work. I wish I had time to add more content to my growing Web presence. I'll be building a new site soon with Joomla! as the content management system. Need a place for freelance writers and others to share and help one another? Check out my site on Ning. The membership is growing, however, very slowly. Keep in touch! Semper Fi '72 - '76 Eagle Pull.

Thanks for your service, Sir! I'll definitely check your site on Ning out!

eHow makes me cringe, not just because of my own experiences, but, also because of the experiences of others....people have had some REALLY bad experiences with them....

I don't quite understand WHY they rank so high in the search engines.....do you think that'll last? The are basically at the apex of article submission/revenue sharing websites, yet, they have a website filled with glitches, unclear guidelines, and disgruntled users :(....

At the rate Info Barrel is gaining in search engines, it should be a formidable competitor with eHow, soon......I speak to IB's owners frequently, and they think that they can push 100,000 worldwide users pretty quickly.....

oh...and.....U.S. Army.... 2001-Current....Afghanistan Vet'/ Newly commissioned 2LT....HOOAH! :)

This is a good article. I wondered what had happened to the recurring tweets options! I have a free account, but I really don't use it much.

I have a decidedly blunt opinion about auto-follow.
If you're interested, type this into google:

twitter reciprocal following is stupid

I'd love to hear your opinions about these services.

Cheers,

Mitch

I've read articles about reciprocal following, and I agree with parts of what they say. The same goes for link exchange; a thing of the past that we still hang on to. Except for auto-follow-back, Twitter rules prohibit auto follow and auto unfollow. Still, as long as you're not aggressive about it, auto follow and auto unfollow might not be detected.

I signed up for a twitter account but after the initial automation of the account really have not used it much. I do add links to all the articles that I publish online on twitter. Not that it has got me much traffic.
Some times I feel on twitter everyone is talking and no one is listening.

I often use URL shorteners like bit.ly (http://bit.ly -- no DOT com, etc.) to track traffic that I get from my Twitter updates with shortened links.
