Can we retweet a shadow-banned account?

Post by bitcoin » Sat Jun 09, 2018 8:25 am

One of the teams I'm promoting (https://twitter.com/mogwaicoin) appears to be shadow banned. I know this because if I search on twitter for: from:@teamname I get 0 results. Which is a shadowban.

So any retweet bot that works with a from:teamname query fails me. Can TD retweet those shadowbanned accounts? It needs to retweet Latest tweets and exclude replies and optionally retweets @teamname made. It also should ignore tweets older than xy days (though a "no-more-than-yz-tweet-results" would work to, so for example; only the last 5 tweets should be looked at - once retweeted they can't be retweeted again even if the team suddenly stops tweeting. I hate crawling back in time bugs where I start retweeting old sheit).

I don't see why not, as long as the userfeed search can get the profiles tweets, it should work.

Am I not understanding you are are you missing my point? If you do from:useraccount you get 0 results despite they tweeted... So where or how to solve that with TD?

Enjoy your weekend

What martin tried to say is -

IF userfeed search returns the profile tweets then is possible. This is a generic answer.
To you, if you search the profile and nothing comes up with the profile then it is not possible to retweet.

I will make the thing easy ..

If the account is shadow banned (the results of search does not show the acc - or is completely removed from search result)
and you still want to retweet that profiles tweets then - just target the profile( no search and get results - just get latest tweet of that account ) and retweet the data.


Did you mean anything else?
Then please say..

I can see the account and just retweeted its latest post and worked fine for me.

Screenshot as wanted -

My apologies if I misunderstood.

If your question purely around the user of the search term:

from:useraccount

If so, then I am not sure this is supported in the bot. I know the website has different formattings allowed (such as the above) but I don't think they work in TD by default.
One of the teams I'm promoting (https://twitter.com/mogwaicoin) appears to be shadow banned. I know this because if I search on twitter for: from:@teamname I get 0 results. Which is a shadowban.
ok, so this term fails on twitter.com
So any retweet bot that works with a from:teamname query fails me.
Maybe this is the confusion. Are you saying that previously, this term DID work in TD? But now doesn't?
Can TD retweet those shadowbanned accounts? It needs to retweet Latest tweets and exclude replies and optionally retweets @teamname made.

As @support said above, you would use a custom search:
LATEST POST / RECENT POSTS / USER TWEETS

This should work it is NOT the same as "from: @user" it will be using a different search mechanism.


If I am still not understanding, can you please explain again

Thanks. Can you elaborate a bit on this bit: "it will be using a different search mechanism."

And this would be in the tab "Retweet"?

the website works with from:username as it does not use the API that the bot uses.

What works in the website (equally does not work in the website) may not be the same as what works in the bot

And this would be in the tab "Retweet"?
The differences between bot and the website are bot wide. The bot uses the twitter API (hence the having to setup API KEYS / AUTHORISE etc

The website is a different system / works differently
