Twitter Policy Changes: About Canned Promo Tweets

As I warned you on Twitter, as of the 23rd of March, Twitter no longer tolerates multiple identical tweets. Not on one account, not across multiple accounts. The fine folks at dlvr.it aptly & concisely convey the changes:

Posting Duplicate Content to Multiple Twitter Accounts is no longer allowed If you manage more than one Twitter account – you can no longer post the same or similar original content to those accounts. Posting the same content more than once to a single Twitter account is not allowed If you are like many major brands, and recycle the same tweet more than once on a single Twitter account - you’re now in danger of suspension or termination from Twitter.

Obviously, these changes are intended to stop troll army & bot action activities such as those we saw with Russian attacks & proliferation of Fake News. But these changes will affect phone sex operators and other providers using Twitter to promote their businesses.

The biggest impact here will be those automated services such as NiteFlirt “Shouts” & other “I just sold” automated tweet notices from platforms such as iWantClips.

So far, I’ve yet to find a platform covering this policy change at Twitter, and what, if anything, they plan to do about “Shouts” and similar automated promotional tweets. In my opinion, now is the time to stop using them. Unless you want additional reasons to find yourself more than shadowbanned, i.e. find yourself suspended or deleted from Twitter.

But, of course, I would say that, right? I’ve never been a fan of those automated things.

While I completely understand the appeal of such hands-free, “live” promotional tools for providers, often providing content (tweets) when providers were busy or away, the results are typically spammy looking. With today’s Twitter rules, it’s best to just avoid the potential problems.

However, I do understand that these promotional tools can work.

If they are used properly.

Case in point, the lovely Taylor, aka housewifeswag. She’s recently tweeted about just how well those automated clip sales tweets (specifically Many Vids “Promo Blaster”) works for her. Check out the whole thread here:

The point here that Taylor hasn’t acknowledged, is that she is an avid & entertaining tweeter who regularly interacts with her fans and followers.

This is why her Twitter page doesn’t look like a bunch of promotional spam. (Shown at left; screencap taken a couple of days ago as I didn’t want to post so much in one day! Since then, Taylor’s had a death in the family, but still, her page is typically genuinely fun!)

While we are all hoping platform sites will take appropriate actions regarding the automated promotional tweets, we cannot count on them.

The safest way to protect ourselves, our Twitter accounts, is to turn off the automated tools. The risks right now are too great to do otherwise. (And, with the current potential purge of sex workers on platforms, removing the automated risk of multiple identical tweets at least removes some of the mud – if not blood – from the muddy waters.)

But you still can tweet about being available for calls, having sold a clip, etc. Just write a unique tweet each time to remind your fans and potential customers that your content is available and selling. You can still include a photo and, of course, provide a link – always a good thing to do so folks can find what you are promoting. And a pic too. And you can also retweet yourself – once.

Just remember to do as the profitable providers do: Be sure to mix those promotional tweets in with other tweets/content.
