I have started doing Twitterbots again for those that were and are interested. I won’t make this a long post, but if you’re interested in having one, just click here. Thanks for reading!
So every hashtag that you see has its own recent feed. If you search #KanyeWest, you’ll find a feed on Twitter that has every single time anyone has ever used that hashtag ever.
What my bot does is, it finds the latest tweet with your chosen hashtag, like #BookBoost for instance, and retweets it every few minutes or so.
This helps you by giving other authors exposure, so they in turn want to follow you, along with readers and promotions companies. Then, when you post something you want retweeted(Like a new release), all of those people are willing to return the favor.
This bot has been a more powerful marketing tool than any campaign I have every spent money on, and the good news is, it goes forever. You’ll have a steady stream of followers and people that retweet your stuff, and my bot even thanks people when they follow or mention you.
It completely automates your Twitter so that you have more time to do other things(Like write).
Anyway, if you’re interested in using my bot, just click here. =)
Every indie author should have it, to be honest. It’s constant exposure.
Keep in mind, all information will be strictly confidential!!!! I will never share anything you send me.
This may look complicated, but it’s very easy. I made it easy enough that anyone can do it. =)
Step one: Add a phone number to your twitter account if you haven’t. If you don’t know how, go here.
Step two: Go here and select to create a new app. It will bring up an application.
Name: Whatever you want to call the bot.
Description: Retweet bot
And it will have two spaces for urls. For this, use your blog or website, if you don’t have one, feel free to put mine in both spaces. *Remember to add the https://*
Step three: Go to the permissions tab and change it to “Read, Write and Access direct messages,” when you’re done, it should look like this.
Step four: Go to the keys and access tokens tab. Scroll to the bottom and generate a new access token. There will be a button for it. After you finish, leave this tab open in your browser, you’ll need to return to it. (These keys let my app speak to your Twitter account). When you’re done, it should look like this. *Note: The long strings of random numbers are what I need*
Finally, once you have your keys, send them to me along with your payment and I will set everything up for you remotely from my computer.
Then go to heroku and create an account. Just send me the login info along with the codes you just created, that way I can push the bot to a server so that it does the work 24/7. Then, that’s it! (when it prompts you to enter a language, pick node.js)
Tip: Once the bot is working, I’d advise you to create a pinned tweet with things you want people to see. News, new books, authors you want people to know about, etc. Since you’ll be retweeting people automatically, they will want to retweet you. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the exposure.
If you have trouble with a step, or need help in any way, you know where to find me. =)
