"being able to unretweet bot retweets only"...?

I do had / have use for another feature I once approved of :)

Search all I retweeted for KW or KW Sentences (with blacklist) and UNRetweet it again.

For example:
I retweet something with Trump and GOP: TD Action detects that and unretweets that. And the follow up request will be: automatically unfollow that account again UNLESS profile BIO contains some KWs like "bitcoin, cryptocurrency, ..."

It's a weird feature but very powerful - it saves me so much time Xd
so you want to
1) search for tweets
2) retweet the results
3) unretweet
4) wait
5) unfollow the profile of the tweet you retweeted if bio includes/ excludes some terms?

IS that it? If so, still doesn't make sense :-s

Wouldn't my approach be better then? Do a regular search; filter on Following or not; retweet (or not)

If you just want to retweet from your followings with a keyword, you already can, you don't need anything to do that. Which is why I don't think I understand, as if this is the case, then you asking to do something you can already.... So I think I don't understand as if you can do it already you wouldn't be asking...


I must be missing something

You are mixing up 2 conversations... I made 2 replies - both answering different questions you had. Please take a careful look: it's really all there, nothing to be confused about ;p

my reply before last asked explicity to specify what you are requested exactly.

you posted two links, which jump around and still don't just state

"I would like to do this"

That and the habit of discussing same issues in multiple threads...

As much as I would like to be your personal support worker, I am not. So if you want to post your instruction set / list of what you are trying to do, we can mark this thread as "probably won't be implemented martin has no idea what is being asked"

:)

If Martin would read for once, we wouldn't be dancing around each other each time. I don't make duplicate posts. Things evolve and get updated after I posted them. So for example: missing tweet body first was only after pauzing / restarting TD. Turns out, the problem was bigger OR there were 2 problems. Ergo, you get 2 threads. If you start answering on the wrong threads with different answers, don't blame for complicating matters. I'm very particular when it comes to posting about problems and bugs - and boy, there are a LOT of them in TD. No matter where I look, things don't work as they should... So, if you don't want to be my personal assistant, either hire one or give up on TD altogether ;p

ALso, I have told you many many times exactly what I wanted. You just don't read it and ignore it. Quickly bouncing the ball back to me and consider the forum 'handled'.

So... Do an effort: I don't post just for posting or attention. I post when I have an update... ;p And again: I gave ALL the details you requested. Really, ALL of them. I don't understand what there isn't to understand IF you actually read what I wrote :(

Thanks Martin - Does this update also look to see if the person who sends the tweet is following me before retweeting?
if you set it as a filter yes, if you don't. no
I can't find this anywhere in the filter settings. I see a box to check if I want to "ignore" if the user is following me but not one to only retweet if they are following me. Filter screen shown in screenshot below:

Where is the filter to check if they are following before retweeting located at? Thanks

You mean you only want to retweet if they are a follower?
If so, then no that isn't possible. It would not be a good filter.

You will be igoring 99.99% of results.

If you ONLY want to action on your followers, do a custom followers of search.

Don't search for hashtags and only include if they are a follower

Personally for me it would be a good filter. I run a bot that retweets anything I'm tagged in (a free promotion account that I have). It's to help promote artists etc. I've been using a node.js bot on another server for this and twitterdub for a different account. The only requirements I have is that the person must be a follower and it must be relevant to type of promotion that the account does. Very few people try to tag the account for retweets if they're not a follower so if they do, I just manually untweet them. Really this isn't that big a deal it would just be something nice to have in there.
