Creating A Retweet Account

Post by daithicvd » Wed Oct 11, 2017 12:55 am

Is it possible to create a retweet account with TwitterDub. I have looked at the watch options and can see that it has a lot of what I need but not sure how to get it working exactly as I need.

I'm looking to have an account that:

1) Watches for tweets that mention me
2) Checks if that person is following me
3) If that person is following me I need to retweet that tweet

Is this possible?

hmmm tweets that mention you... Well you could do it with a tweet keyword watch IF your username is fairly unique. but you may get results where the keyword is just mentioned

i.e. your profile @football is going to get lots of false hits on football as I have a feeling you cannot watch on "@username" as the @ is ignored by twitter.

But I would have though there was a way to get mentions, I will need to check into the code

done.

Next update you can in the WATCH (stream) TWEETS module, add the keyword @username

the program will then detect all mentions of your username and react as specified

Thanks Martin - Does this update also look to see if the person who sends the tweet is following me before retweeting?

Or even better: if I'm following them!

no, I don't think it is a filter option either. But considering it has never been requested (that I can recollect) I don't know why you think it would be included :)

But I shall note the feature request. Remind me end of the week and will add it to the filter option

Quality control: if somebody tweets sheit, all I have to do is unfollow them to clean up my retweets :)

Remember I even asked you about Retweet from Followings Only. You said it could not be done ;p
