Reoccurring scheduled updates

I've got a feature idea that I hope no one has suggested yet.

Reoccurring scheduled updates. This would be different from the rolling updates because it would post the same update(s) over and over again. Maybe even have an option to specify the interval between updates. This would be useful for post updates, for example, about your own site. If you wanted to send a post out 2, 3, 4 times a day to help remind people to check out your site.

This is just one example there are plenty of other uses for it.

Thanks,
Mat w.

    Hiya, thanks for this suggestion. I have written a response on the blog about it there: http://pluggio.com/blog/?p=235

    But I'll also paste it in below!

    Why Pluggio Doesn’t have “Reoccurring” Tweets

    This is a quick blog post about why Pluggio doesn’t have Reoccurring” Tweets.

    If you check out Twitters Policy: Rules, Terms, Violations > Spam and Abuse you can see the following:

    You may not use the Twitter service for the purpose of spamming anyone. What constitutes “spamming” will evolve as we respond to new tricks and tactics by spammers. Some of the factors that we take into account when determining what conduct is considered to be spamming are:

    * ...
    * If you post duplicate content over multiple accounts or multiple duplicate updates on one account;
    * ...

    Your account may be suspended for Terms of Service violations if any of the above is true.

    Long story short is it’s against Twitter’s rules and Terms Of Service.

    Pluggio apologises for not to offering this functionality, but given that we know what it’s like to be shut down by Twitter, we make sure to follow their terms of service carefully :)

    This is in an effort to offer our customers as much uptime and reliability as possible.
