Twitter is an online social networking service that enables users to send and read short 140-character messages called "tweets". Users can group posts together by topic or type by use of hashtags – words or phrases prefixed with a "#" sign. Similarly, the "@" sign followed by a username is used for mentioning or replying to other users. Users access Twitter through the website interface, SMS, or mobile device app. The Twitter Web interface uses the Ruby on Rails framework. The service's application programming interface (API) allows other web services and applications to integrate with Twitter.

I recently watched a video on Moz.com, who are recognised by many as experts in social media and SEO.  The video I watched was recommending a strategy that suggested that to maximise the use of each unique tweet, you should seek to schedule the same tweet multiple times over two weeks (it was suggested 7 times over two weeks) AND at different times, acknowledging the fact that the average Twitter user only spend 13 minutes per day on the platform, so unless you scheduled at different times, the size of audience you would hit through a single tweet posted once was minimal.

However, looking at Twitters policy, it would appear that multiple posting of the same tweet is spam

Question to Answer
1. Is there a limit to the number of times you can retweet a tweet?
2. If you can retweet a tweet without it being seen as spam by twitter, how many retweets over what period of time (e.g. 1 tweet retweeted 3 x over 2 weeks - just and example) would you recommend?
3. What is the maximum number of tweets you could post in a single day without it being seen as spam? (have seen forums suggesting anything in excess of 10 would be seen as spam by twitter)

Thanks in advance,
David

hi
i have went through both api's and it seem like one can access only ones own posts or tweets? so if i want to show in an app my home page facebook posts ( therefore, things that my friends and follower posted ), or my home page twitter posts ( not my own, but those i follow) can't i do it?

am i right? or wrong? even if the user authenticate himself?

I have a follower in Twitter and for some reason when she sends me a direct tweet or likes or retweets my tweets, I do not see any indication of this in my Twitter notifications timeline. This is not just myself, other followers of hers also cannot see any mention of her in their notifications timeline.

This issue occurred recently and she has not made any changes to her settings.

Is it based any criteria, patterns or just mere content of the blocked site which is the reason for blocking .

I manage to create Time widget which as you can see in the image perfect but when I add auto load  but when I add the Javascript  to reload this bit and the date and time is loading fine but as shown in second  the tweet feed disappear.

code before ajax

tweet feed disappear
The code of javascript is the following :
<script type="text/javascript" > 
    
    function auto_load(){
        $.ajax({
          url: "index.php",
          cache: false,
          success: function(data){
             $("#auto_load_div").html(data);
          } 
        });
}
 
$(document).ready(function(){
 
auto_load(); //Call auto_load() function when DOM is Ready
 
});
 
//Refresh auto_load() function after 10000 milliseconds
setInterval(auto_load,10000);
    </script>

Open in new window


and the code of the widget would be

 <div id="auto_load_div" > 
              <?php 
             echo "<span   style='color:white; font-weight:bold;'> " . get_sidebar('HTOP')."</span>"; ?>
    
            </div>

Open in new window


do you got another code or idea to refresh the time without effect the tweets ?!!!



-------

my current progress of the situation , that I need way to point from Javascript to sidebar or widgets or .php page on WordPress , I try  the following script

<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
	setInterval(function(){
		$("#screen").load('banners.php')
    }, 2000);
});
</script>

Open in new window

Hi Experts Exchange Team,

We have been using Twitter Timeling Widget in our website and it was working without any issues till this month.
We have gone through the Twitter community pages and learned that Twitter Widgets dropped support for IE8 browsers.

As our application has several customers, It is very difficult to upgrade IE8 browser to later releases.
SO Is there any workaround to support Twitter Widget Timeline in IE8 ?.

We are using the following Twitter Widet code in our website.

<a class="twitter-timeline" href="https://twitter.com/XXXXXXX" data-widget-id="577104786949943297">Tweets by @XXXXX</a>
<script>!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],p=/^http:/.test(d.location)?'http':'https';if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src=p+"://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");</script>

Any Help is much Appreciated !

Regards
Muzeeb Mohammed
