Twitter takes the "Oomph" out of SocialOomph


SocialOomph (formerly TweetLater) announced in their blog Monday, October 12, 2009, that Twitter has informed them that recurring tweets are in violation of the Twitter Terms of Service. The SocialOomph blog post includes the following excerpt from what Twitter sent to SocialOomph:

"Recurring Tweets are a violation no matter how they are done, including whether or not someone pays you to have a special privilege. We don’t want to see any duplicate tweets whatsoever. They pollute Twitter, and tools shouldn’t be given to enable people to break the rules. Spinnable text seems to just be a way to bypass the rules against duplicate updates and essentially provides the same problems."

Twitter Duplicate Text

Beginning Thursday, October 15, SocialOomph is placing all recurring tweets on pause, apparently giving their customers a chance to get copies of their recurring tweets. From that point, no further recurring tweets can be setup. Unfortunately, SocialOomph Professional lacks an export feature for its recurring tweets.

There are many solutions available to aid you with your Twitter-based Social Media Marketing (SMM) campaigns. In fact, to avoid problems due to unforeseen changes, it is best to use more than one method.

Three well-known, affordable solutions are Tweet Adder, Tweet Riches and Twitter Bot Friend Adder. Each package offers the same basic features: auto follow, auto follow back, auto unfollow, auto update, auto reply, auto DM, schedule messages, import followers, follow by keyword, keyword trends, statistics, multiple accounts, proxy usage and more.
