Do You Trade Retweets On Twitter? Use Spamcleaner To Automatically Undo Each Retweet After The Mutually Agreed Time

Last Saturday we released a Spamcleaner update which makes possible two things: setting a custom unretweet frequency and undoing retweets one by one, once their permanence time has expired, instead of cleaning them in bulk.

Custom Frequency

The new frequency tab now asks users to insert a duration of time, which can be up to 360 days. Users can define such time (T) by selecting days, hours and minutes (multiple of 5). T refers to how often you want Spamcleaner’s unretweeting script to run through your account.

If T = 0 days, 3 hours, 40 minutes (as shown in the image above) then the unretweeting script will hit your account every 3h and 40 minutes, cleaning all retweets accordingly.

If you want Spamcleaner to clean your retweets every 10 minutes then you have to set T = 0 days, 0 hours, 10 minutes as shown in the image above and then click on set unretweet frequency.

If you want Spamcleaner to clean your retweets every 20 minutes then you have to set T = 0 days, 0 hours, 20 minutes as shown in the picture above and then click on set unretweet frequency.

If you want Spamcleaner to clean your retweets every hour then you have to set T = 0 days, 0 hours, 60 minutes as shown in the picture above and then click on set unretweet frequency.

For any other frequency the same procedure applies, and once you set an unretweeting frequency the app will work on the background as usual and no further action is required from your side to keep it going.

How To Use Spamcleaner So That It Deletes Each Retweet Automatically After the Mutually Agreed Time

If you trade retweets then setting an unretweet frequency alone might lead to several inconveniences. In fact, the unretweet frequency cleans all retweets in bulk. This means that if you have picked a T = 15 minutes, then the app will clean all retweets every 15 minutes. So, if the last clean up happened at 8:00PM then all retweets produced between 8:00PM and 8:15PM will be removed at 8:15PM. As result, some retweets, all those done after 8:01PM will have remained on your timeline for less than 15 minutes, some might be undone even after only 1 minute. In fact, if a tweet was retweeted at 8:14 then Spamcleaner will remove such retweet in the next clean up round set for 8:15PM. And if you’re trading retweets your trading partner won’t be happy about it.

To avoid this we have added a new feature, the unretweet timer (shown in the image above in OFF state). If after setting an unretweet frequency (read the first section above for details), you ALSO switch on the unretweet timer then retweets will not be cleaned in bulk, but one by one. Basically, Spamcleaner will monitor every retweet separately and, if you have set an unretweet frequency of 1h, it will undo each retweet 1h after it has been performed.

If you are trading retweets with a partner and have agreed that each of you should keep each other’s retweets on their timeline for 20 minutes then you have to set T = 0 days, 0 hours, 20 minutes, click on set unretweet frequency AND switch on the unretweet timer (as shown in the image above).

If you are trading retweets with a partner and have agreed that each of you should keep each other’s retweets for 1 hour then you have to set T = 0 days, 0 hours, 60 minutes, click on set unretweet frequency AND switch on the unretweet timer (as shown in the image above). The same logic/process applies for any other time you have agreed to.
