Retweet trusted users' tweets based on hashtag


(Erlend Sogge Heggen) #1

When I first saw @Sam’s Discourse Security Guide my first thought was “so handy! has the internets been informed?”

Since it’s only on Sam’s Twitter feed and not the Discourse one, the answer was “only sort of”.

I got to wondering how these sort of important news could be consolidated a bit more effectively. I managed to dig up an IFTTT recipe of what I was trying to achieve, but unfortunately it’s outdated and I was unsuccessful at updating it.

Sooo, this ended up becoming more needy than helpful, but if someone can figure out a simple method for automatic retweeting of a specific user’s specific hashtag, twitter/discourse would have all the news.

(Alternatively you could use http://grouptweet.com/, but it’s expensive)

We can probably just make sure stuff like that goes out in the official @discourse twitter.

This is rare enough that there is no need for a grandiose “system”, just reminders by actual humans.

Just in case someone is interested in this kind of functionality, there’s a service called Roundteam that does exactly what I was looking for. Free to use if you agree to automatically tweet a shoutout to the service every 50 tweets it does for you.
