ReTweet ONLY original tweets, not replies

ReTweet ONLY original tweets, not replies

I've tried, retweet and mass retweet, both seem to rt my replies, and i dont want that, its unprofessional. looks very spammy


Please fix this, as im wasting time, grabbing the tweets i like, then creating a rt from .txt file, to rt from, very time consuming..

I'd rather just use the ReTweet or MASS ReTweet to do this for me, BUT I DONT WANT IT TO POST MY REPLIES.


hope you understand this.. regards

an update ASAP would be amazing.

There is a filter. Original Tweets Only

However this was added to avoid actioning on RETWEETS, am not sure if it works with replies. I will test / confirm and push an update if required (update is already coming today so will be today)

Was there a push/change to the software because of this? I'm now retweeting retweets from specified users (Retweet action -> From List [using a list of user account URLs]) which is causing a major problem - I don't want to RT their retweets just originals. Never saw this occurring up until the last few days.

Right now I'm going through every single Retweet action and re-doing them, setting the Original Tweets Only filter to ON.
Not fun.

Edit : This is the reason for my thread I marked as IGNORE. Not solved, but at least now I know I have to set this in the filter for each RT action.

It shouldn't.

So either the setting is being lost, or it isn't detecting it is a reply. Let me confirm and get back to you

Original tweets filter working for me, ignores replies + retweets. I'll add some logging that will show for sure what is happening. Update be ready later today

I just noticed this thread again today. Yes, it was an issue as I noticed a few accounts still retweeting retweets even when I had the option checked to retweet originals only.

I've installed the update posted today and will monitor to see if it's still an issue.

Thanks!
