Replying to a tweet using Spintax automation
This spice can save your time by automating the process of replying to tweets you care about. The biggest problem with other alternatives as there was no way to personalize the message. You had to comment the same thing on every reply to the tweet that was sent out.
Not anymore, you can personalize the comments for individual tweets & automate the process of posting them in one go. You don’t have to go to an individual tweet & add a reply, just set up all replies once & you’re good to go.

- Automatically reply to tweets using Spintax. Get tweet URLs and promote those tweets for more traction(s).
- Create more buzz around your profile by automatically responding to tweets that’s already performing well on Twitter. This will bring a lot of attention to your profile and hence more business.
- Specify tweet URL to add personalized comments to the Tweets.

Understanding the whole execution Replying to a tweet using Spintax
Here we will see the steps of the execution & the inputs required for this spice.
The whole execution will play around these 6 input points. This spice would make sense only if you have multiple tweets to reply to using Spintax, using this spice to reply to a single tweet doesn’t make sense.
Here’s what each of the input points means:
1. Twitter_Auth Token: Twitter uses this piece of information to ensure it’s really you who’s using the Twitter profile.
2. Tweet Link: Here you will enter the URL of the post you want to extract Likers from.
3. Spintax Comments: Enter all the spintax comments you want to use to reply to a tweet
4. Upload CSV or Google Sheet: You can upload a CSV of Google Sheet if you have a lot of tweets to reply to using Spintax. Be sure to execute this with the daily limit in mind. Even though there isn’t any limit to how many tweets you can reply to using Spintax, your daily limit is still something you should keep in mind.
Note: If you’re doing this on the web browser, make sure you have a proxy set up beforehand. If you’re doing the same thing on a desktop, you don’t have to worry about anything. Refer to these guides to learn more about proxies.
5. Add Reply: Clicking on this button will immediately start the execution.
6. Schedule this spice: You can choose to schedule this spice to regularly add replies to tweets based on the URLs mentioned in CSV/Google Sheet (more on this below)

- First paste the Google sheet’s URL.
- Either get the Twitter_Auth Token or use our chrome extension to do it with the click of a button. You can also create variables to avoid entering Twitter_Auth Token again & again. Here’s a guide to creating variables on TexAu.
