Reply to a reply with 2nd bot

Post by hakunamatata187 » Sat Aug 01, 2020 12:24 am

so I saw a post from 2018 where someone asked if its possible to comment on a reply of someone but I believe the feature was not fully working then, so I was wondering if its possible now, i.e. I want my bots to reply to my other bots reply to someones account

i.e. @JustinBieber tweets, my main bot replies with a website and then my secondary bots reply to the bot something like "cool website" :lol: :lol:

I cant seem to be able to pick up the replies so I was wondering if that function would work somehow?

EDIT: so the watch user doesnt work for the main bot as the bot is not posting a tweet but merely replying to a tweet so my secondary bot can't find any results.

Thanks

The WATCH USER module is supposed to reply to the latest tweet posted. If you want to just post a normal tweet and not a reply, why are you using the WATCH USERS module?

But you should still be able to reply to the reply

Just checked and you can reply to a reply, so I don't think I really understand your issue.

WATCH USERS will post a reply.
If you have that URL, you can then use your other accounts to MASS REPLY to that reply.

It isn't a one step action (maybe that is what you are reporting) but as you didn't mention this as the issue, I am not sure

I'm using the watch user function with the reply option ticked but the bot does not reply to my other bots replies, it only replies to the other bots tweets but not to the other bots replies.

I.e. see pictures below, my main bot has no tweets but has several replies (to other accounts), when I put the main bot username on the watch user mode the other bots says no tweets can be found, since the main bot didnt actually tweet but merely replied to other tweets, I did a test with the main bot posting a tweet and the watch user picked it up straight away as expected but it does not pick up the bits posted "tweets & replies"

Ok, I understand you now. As you say, replies do not appear in the main tweets endpoint

Let me check out how to get that endpoint and get back to you

Userfeed scrapes can pass in CSV to include replies, retweets:
format: (comma or space delimited acceptable): @user,replies,retweets:

Examples(comma):

Code: Select all

 @user,true,false 
 username,true,true 
 https://twitter.com/user,false,false 
 @user,false,false 
examples (space):

Code: Select all

 @user true false 
 username true true 
 https://twitter.com/user false false 
 @user false false

sorry forgot to add, for the WATCH USERS module

you MUST use the CSV space version

@user true false

As the watch user module already has a functionality assigned to CSV (comma) for bulk loading
