How to recycle/recur posts for Twitter

Why can't I recycle or recur posts for Twitter?

Twitter's Automation Rules prohibit users from creating the same or similar posts and sharing them more than once. That is why you cannot post to more than one Twitter account at the same time.

To clarify, Twitter strictly forbids any endeavor to employ automation for the intent of posting or distributing spam, and engaging in such actions could lead to enforcement measures being taken.

Therefore, you will get this error when trying to post similar content to Twitter: "You may not post duplicative or substantially similar Tweets across one or more accounts as it is against Twitter policies". In this case, we recommend you use complex spintax variations.

However, you can use Spintax to create a few variations per post. That way, the different variations will be recycled/recurred randomly.
With the built-in Spintax Generator in Publer, you can create several variations per post. Keep in mind that 10 or more variations are needed in order to recycle/recur your posts.

We also recommend that you create a more complex Spintax text, so that more unique variations are created. For example, you can use nested spintax.

You can recycle words, sentences, or whole tweets with the Spintax Generator, and create nested spintax within those.
Moreover, you can automate this process with the Publer AI Assist. Simply prompt the AI assist to generate Spintax variations, as shown here.
You need to have at least 10 variations per post in order to recycle or recur the post for Twitter, and sometimes, you need to create even more complex variations using nested spintax, to ensure that all your post variations get scheduled.
