Twitter's New Rules and Retweets

Twitter recently announced a number of significant rule and policy changes. These policy updates impact all Twitter users and app developers and will be enforced starting March 23, 2018.

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.

However, when announcing its new rules, Twitter specified that you may Retweet between accounts under your control:

"As an alternative to posting identical content, you can Retweet content from one account from the other accounts you wish to share that post from. This should only be done from a small number of distinct accounts that you directly control."

dlvr.it now supports retweeting from one account you own to a limited number Twitter accounts under your direct control. To protect the safety of our users' accounts, we have limited this number to five accounts that will be permitted to Retweet from a single handle.

How to Retweet content:

To set up your Retweets, follow the steps below:

1) From your Automate page, click Add New Feed
