Changes to Posting to Multiple Twitter Accounts.


Twitter's new policy on battling spam violations.

In an effort to keep Twitter safe and free from spam violations, such as the use of multiple accounts to attempt to artificially amplify or inflate the prominence of certain Tweets, Twitter has updated their policy pertaining to TweetDeck and their API. Twitter is enforcing this policy change for all third-party providers. You may read more about it here.

CHANGES IN FALCON
As a result of this, Falcon is implementing the following changes in our platform as of Thursday, March 22, 2018:

1. In Publish, customers will not be able to simultaneously post identical or substantially similar content to multiple Twitter accounts.

2. In Publish, customers will not be able to post content to multiple Twitter accounts when bulk importing posts via a CSV file upload. 

3. In Listen, customers will not be able to simultaneously perform Retweets to multiple Twitter accounts.

IMPLICATIONS FOR SCHEDULED TWEETS
If you already scheduled a Twitter post to multiple accounts beyond March 22, 2018, Falcon will not modify it and the post will still be published to multiple accounts as intended. However, as a best practice, we'd recommend you to review your scheduled posts and make sure that they comply with Twitter's new policy. 

Note: If you open a previously scheduled Twitter post that was meant to go out to multiple accounts, you will need to remove all Twitter channels but one to be able to make any changes and save updates to the post. Otherwise, the post will be considered invalid and therefore no changes will be saved on it automatically.
