We have all heard about automation, and this practice came from the offices and now is on our social media networks as well. Today we look at twitter automation, and how it can make it easier for you to run your twitter accounts the right way.

What Is It?

Twitter automation is all about using a bot to automate the different tasks that you perform on your account on a daily basis. These tasks include following/unfollowing, tweeting, commenting and much more.

This means you don’t have to stay all day and night on the platform performing these tasks; the tool takes care of everything you are supposed to do each day.

So, what can these tools do for you?

Automatically Share Tweets

Using the right tool, you can automatically post your tweets and share them with your followers. You don’t have to post the tweets manually; this is done by the bot. All you need to do is come up with the right content and then set up the times when you want it to be posted. The tool does this for you.

The good thing is that you can do this to different Twitter accounts without having to switch tabs. The bot you choose for this task should be able to support a certain number of Twitter accounts so that you can easily schedule the tasks the right way.

Since you can automatically post to twitter, you can keep your followers engaged and on top of news so that you don’t lose their engagement.

You can schedule to instantly share tweets, blog posts and images to the different accounts. You can decide to have a schedule for the week or the month depending on how easy it is to get the content you wish to share.

You Have Total Control

There is nothing that gives you thrill like having total control over what you do on the Twitter account. The bots grant you this power. You and you alone decide what to do at what time.

At your disposal, you have powerful controls that you choose when and how to use. You can decide to schedule the tweets the way you wish, and use filters to manage how many tweets get delivered each hour.

You also have the chance to tailor the tweets using custom images, text, short links, and hashtags. In short, the power is in your hands.

Automate Following

You can automate the following and unfollowing of users. Using different criteria, you can make this an effortless practice that you will love. You can follow users in a mass way or do so individually. Unfollowing also happens this way.

Getting more followers gives you the social proof that you need (people with a large following are seen as authoritative on Twitter) to make sure you stand out from the crowd.

Automate Direct Messages and Replies

Using direct messaging and replies on Twitter is one of the ways to make communication between you and the users easier and faster. You can reach many users using these features, which makes it easy to send information or react to a particular topic.

You can decide to send direct messages to a select number of followers depending on the keyword; this can be a request or a call for information.

Either way, you need to know that frequent messages might be seen as spammy, and might spoil the fun.

Fred Harrington also suggests that you can use software that can auto tweet depending on the keyword you choose to target.

Final Words

Take time to understand what Instagram can do for you, and use the right bot to take your engagement to the next level.
