Man, I don't know anymore... :(
Image

I've been re-creating and re-enabling my TD Actions and yeay - I got a reward again :(

Post-edit: waking up <6 hours later again... ;/ What's a girl gotta do to make Twitter happy! I really don't know any more...
Image

Post-edit: looking at TD log files, I noticed I did start my altcoinexchange promo again. It only did 1 or 2 test tweets while I was rebuilding the actions and after that it was just waiting for its time to start... I paused it again - I susspected my altcoinexchange tweets to be suspect before. BUT they are also very popular and giving me many signups. And I post it 4 times per day max... It's paused now. I think I'll have to wait until midnight before numbers are back >20k'/2hours again ;-( Another suspect might be my mingocoin price festival tweets... Also not a lot and also generated one or two test tweets...

Twitter always seems to limit me to 25k 35k /2hours... Studying my stats for the last few weeks and my experiences of the last year indicate now something is wrong - I should get way more!

I might know how to improve though...
Image
(the smaller bars are >20k still - the big bar tops at 69.5k)

One of the accounts I currently promote posts a lot of news I gather from the internet, related to their community's interest. One of my bots broke down so their numbers crashed (not much news was posted unless we manually tweeted something).

Above numbers (I just noticed them) were the result once my bot started posting the backlog again. We never had those numbers, ever.

So I'm thinking here... Maybe it's smarter not to be so constant with posting new items. (I try to post something every 80 seconds - when possible). Maybe I should start queuing news items in batches. Wait a few hours, post them all. Pause again. Let the numbers go up and slowly decline; give them a kick with fresh content and let the dust settle a bit once again.

My programmer is very busy so it will be a few weeks minimum before I can test this out... But this certainly is a note to self.

And I even survived a round of replying and retweeting... Gonna do the same in a bit for another promo I run (manually retweeting and replying). See if that crashes anything :/

Post-update: seems Twitter wants me at 20k/2 hours exactly for now...
Image

I'll do another retweet round next : )

I went to bed at around 2AM. When I woke up, TD wasn't running any longer: the program just quit :(

Looking at the logs, it crashed a little after 6AM after which twitter immediately brought me back to 15k/2 hours - no idea what happened before that :(

So annoying all this :(
Image

The dip is around 6.300 impressions. It's from 4 to 6AM.

Post-update: I had one Tweet Images at 1.36 AM which failed (no http:// before a ((bitly-rand)-statement).

I had another Tweet Images start at 02:22AM - sounds like the perfect scapegoat, no? No! Because that tweet went to another account of mine... Not to MyAccount. Then nothing happened until 05:01AM.

It might be time to take another look at my FollowLiker affiliate pool... Sigh.

In the mean time... This is how the account is doing that I'm promoting and which I supposedly should be boosting by retweeting them and tweeting about them...

Image

Luckily, I'm also the one that automated that account. But just look at those stats. If Twitter wouldn't throttle me I'd be at 1M impressions each day :(

I think I really am going to look for another medium to get my promotional work done - and my news out!

not tweeting = more exposure.

Huh. That's unique! I hadn't tweeted anything for 5 hours (which is rare; I guess no news was published this Sunday during these 5 hours...

Image

The growth there is where I wasn't tweeting for 5 hours. When news started to dribble in again, the numbers went down (and my phone starts tjirping again)

wtf.

Here are two of my tweets, dated Oct. 20th...

Now explain to me how I don't have way more Impressions! Twitter is so precise with controlling whom gets what, it feels like censorship more than anything else ;-(

Well, it went up during the day...
Image

Then, I tweeted about the murder of an openly gay Tesnian / Russian singer who got arrested and murdered the same day after being tortured by the Tesnian authorities (during an official anti-gay sweep they held). It was a news-tweet in style: so 'sec'.

That was something Twitter didn't like either... No Trump. No LGBT. Got it. Just be happy and sing Kumbaja My Lord huh? :(

update: while my numbers look better than ever, knowing what I know now I'm not happy.

I was now topping 30k-35k impressions per 2 hours. Then I went to bed and tweeted;
- a Trump meme without text
- a news link concerning Trump

Guess what? My impressions went back to about 20k. It's now slowly crawling back up again...

Post-edit: while it was climbing, I made another Trump tweet... Let's see how this develops, but I think I know the answer : )
Image

Another later post-edit:
I post this here because I was at 14k already 1 hour ago... Twitter did not like it and hard-capped me to get slightly below my previous 2 hour block... Still part of the punishment for tweeting political motivated stuff, no doubt. I suppose tomorrow at the end of the afternoon I'll be back at +30k. Sigh :(
