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."

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.

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.
