Hi Zura. I've seen you post this before. What does it mean? Are they retweets? Curious to hear more and whether you have a schedule for that.
Marc, hey! They're retweets, yes! I don't have an exact hour of the day to do it, but it's part of my morning ritual: I usually have coffee after waking up while reading my Twitter feed from this side account (twitter.com/thelatinopulse).
Instead of generating content about startups and Tech policy in LatAm, I just curate it from different organizations in the ecosystem. It's also a way to have a glance at the regional trends.
@zuraguerra Ah I see!
So do you RT everything in one go, or somehow add it to a queue?
I'd like to tweet more for WIP as well, so RTs might be a good approach. Amplifying what other makers have to say. Would be great if I could batch process, but still spread out the RTs over time.
@marc (curious! do I need to tag users, otherwise they don't get a notification?)
🤔 I don't know if there's something already to enqueue RTs
But there're also different things to consider when curating vs creating tweets: for example, most orgs here have scheduled their tweets, so it's very clear in my case that I should start reading after ~10am, to catch content from all Latam timezones; after ~3pm (overall lunch time) there's also a wave of tweets
How about trying manually for some days on different hours?
@zuraguerra People commenting on todos automatically get subscribed to all activity on that todos. So no, usually there's not need to tag them. But in the off chance they unsubscribed from the todo, tagging them will still notify them. As it's a different type of notification. So I generally tag them anyway. (You can just click "Reply" on their todo and it automatically fill in their username).
Trying manually first makes sense. I did discover Buffer.com has a browser extension that adds support for scheduled retweets.
Thanks for the explanation! Also for sharing about Buffer, I'll check it out
