RoundTeam gives an opportunity to automatically collect updates on interesting topics from relevant people. Let’s say you are interested in tweets about some event. For example, science expedition. Of course, you can follow all members of this expedition. But then you’ll get all their tweets, not only related to the topic of your interest. Second, you can read this expedition’s #hashtag. But it means you’ll get all tweets with this hashtag, not only posted by expedition members.
RoundTeam offers the perfect solution for this issue. Just tell RoundTeam to retweet specific #hashtag from a scoped group of people (e.g., expedition members) and enjoy feed of interesting tweets generated for you automatically! As a bonus, since you receive all required tweets in one feed, you can use it for memories, historical analysis etc.
Here is a step-by-step tutorial of how it works.
Step 2. Configuring retweets.
After Step 1 is done, you’ll see the following table. This is your personal retweeting dashboard:
Now, there are actually two ways to configure retweets from specific group of Twitter accounts. We’ll take a look on each of them one-by-one.
Option 1. Retweet from Followed
Usually events like expeditions (or similar to it) have specific #hashtag or keywords added to their tweets. So the simplest way to aggregate updates is to set up retweets from “Followed” category by this specific retweet item (#/@/keyword).
For the purpose of vivid example we will use tag #expedition.
Click “+” button in “Followed” line and add your hashtag in the appeared text box:
Click “Add” button.
Simple, isn’t it? You are almost done!
The last thing you need to do – follow people on Twitter from whom you’ll aggregate relevant updates. That said, when someone from those who you follow will make a tweet with selected hashtag/keyword, you will get a retweet in your Team’s feed. You can use any retweet item (@mention/#hashtag/keyword) and any combination of them, to reach better results and make your retweets more targeted. Don’t forget about our Filters too.
That’s it. Let’s have a look at the second option.
Option 2. Retweet from List
If you want to have more control over your retweets, we recommend using Lists feature for aggregating updates. Before using this feature, you need to create Twitter public list and include all Twitter users you want to get retweets from there. The main advantage of the Lists method is that you can retweet all tweets from List members, or make a selective retweets using #hashtag/keyword. Moreover, it will be the perfect solution, if you want to retweet updates from fewer Twitter users (in our example — expedition members), than you actually follow. Also, it is very simple to operate — just add or delete members to/from your Twitter List.
To illustrate this approach, we are using public list on Twitter called “Example”. This list includes only one member — @RoundTeam.
To configure retweets aggregation from List you need to click “+” button in “Lists” line and specify your list in the appeared text boxes:
Click “Add” button.
In case of more targeted retweeting, use settings like this:
Now you are all set! Enjoy and happy retweeting!
