Many people ask how other twitter users can have so many updates a day. Do they have nothing else to do, only tweeting.
In my article”Combine twitter, friendfeed, twitterfeed and RSS” I described how to bring your blog or webpage articles automatically in twitter. Today I will show how to automatically retweet articles.
First you need to define from which follower you want to re tweet the tweets. Use a follower who doesn’t tweet to much private stuff. Ok in this example we wanna re tweet the tweets of NBA.
So login to twitter and find the page of your selected follower.
Down right you can find the RSS feed of your follower.
Use your right button of your mouse and “copy the link location”. Open your friendfeed account and go to the friendfeed services page. Select “blog”
Paste the copied link into the app.
Now you have the RSS Feed in friendfeed.
OK next step we need to bring friendfeed back to twitter.
On your friendfeed page you have also the possibility to copy with right mouse button the Link Location of your friendfeed RSS feed.
Now go to your twitterfeed account and setup a new feed like here
OK that’s it. After a while twitterfeed should start sending the friendfeed rss feed to twitter. see here
Oh you will ask ” Why the turn over friendfeed” here the answer
Now you will re tweet the last 5 tweets from your follower every 30 minutes.
Maybe you don’t want to re tweet from a follower. You want to retweet by content.
retweet from a twitter search
Re tweet from a search works similar to the retweet of a follower. The one difference is that you don need to make the turn over friendfeed. Maybe after this article twitter will change it but than you can do it over friendfeed too.
OK, go to your twitter account and do a search. Here in the example itś “social media”
Save the search and copy with your right mouse button the link location from the RSS feed again.
Now you can go directly to twitterfeed. And setup the feed re tweet.
That’s it. A small advice don’t use a rarely used term in your search cause in the next updated your will re tweet your own re tweet. You built a loop. From one re tweet to the next re tweet their must be more than 5 new results in the search.
Here the retweet result
AND ONLY RE TWEET INTERESTING THINGS FOR YOUR FOLLOWERS AND NOT TOO MUCH CAUSE OTHERWISE IT’S SPAM
