I'm new to Twitterdub. How do I setup an account to reply and then same account comment on its own reply maybe 2 or 3 times?

So you want to use your acc_a to reply to tweet_1 (acc_a_posted_tweet_1)
then use acc_a to post a reply to the tweet it posted? (so reply to acc_a_posted_tweet_1 and that tweet will be acc_a_posted_tweet_2)
then what? you want reply _2 / reply_3 to post to the first posted reply acc_a_posted_tweet_1 or the 2nd reply acc_a_posted_tweet_2



orig_tweet
-- reply_tweet
----reply_to_reply_1

then do you want
----reply_to_reply_2
----reply_to_reply_3

or
------reply_to_reply_to_reply_1

Ok so each reply is then replied to, meaning each tweet reply gets 1 reply, not the first reply gets multiple replies

original_tweet
- reply_1

then we reply to the reply
--reply_to_reply_1

then we reply to the most recent reply
---reply_to_reply_of_reply_1

then we then reply to the most recent reply
---reply_to_reply_to_reply_of_reply_1

--------------------------------


Ok, so I just tested and found a bug in the nested posting (posting to self after 2 layers deep, so you'll need to update:
https://rootjazz.com/twitterdub/updatetesting.html

Then you specify your Tweet as

Code: Select all

reply1 %1% reply2 %1% reply3 %1% reply4
where %1% means there will be a 1minute delay before the reply is posted

That isn't what you said - admittedly my notation was complicated and I had to re-read it a few times to understand what I mean :D :D

Ok so you want to post a reply to an original tweet
then post multiple replies to THAT reply

update:
https://rootjazz.com/twitterdub/updatetesting.html

And you can do this

reply1 %1% reply to the reply %%% another reply to the reply %%% and another reply to the replay


which should make sense :-) If not, I can explain what is going on


Regards,
Martin

Enter your comment exactly as I specified above in the comment box

Code: Select all

reply to base tweet %1%  reply1 to your first tweet_reply  %%% reply2 to your first tweet_reply %%% reply3 to your first tweet_reply 

%1% will cause a delayed tweet to the tweet that just posted (nested replies)
%%% will post another tweet to the tweet just replied to (multiple replies)
