    #33 Thanks Javier! Thanks for putting up with a bee like me! I've been controversial at times, but I'm passionate about certain topics. One of those being social interaction. I'm still learning my way through multicultural interaction on a platform like this one. My heart will always be one of redemption. I will do my best to keep my honey sweet!

    #5 @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian I didn't say bebee "tells" ambassadors "what to do". I said, "provide guidance", which BeBee does publiclly via its program description expectations, and I am told by a number of ambassadors", through suggestions behind the scenes.

    Nothing wrong with providing guidance, in any event, and in fact, it's wise to do so in the same way you provide guidance to users of tweetpack to help them get the most from it.

    @Nic Fester and & @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian thanks for the article and the professional comments. As a social media non-professional, I learned a lot here.
    Each of us sets his goals according to his business and sets his own strategy. This is only possible if being aware of the different tools available and the system limits.
    Thanks again!

    #1 There are Bots and there are BOTS. The locksmith and the burglar use the same tools.

    There are Tweet Bots who follow at random and reply to tweets with nonsensical comments. Why? What do they stand to gain?

    Just because we CAN do something does not mean we SHOULD

    The question is one of intent. It's a question of being a good citizen. Yes, the road to Hell is paved with good intentions, but we take what steps we can to limit them.

    Example: A certain lady here that just about everyone loves and respects joined myTweetPack. She was so thrilled at how easy it was to store and schedule supporting tweets she got carried away. At one point she was tweeting 350 times a day, mostly shares and retweets, but still.

    We coded the min/max daily tweet function in response to her exuberance.

    The intention was not to spam but to promote others. Still, spam it was.

    #2 No, we didn't get any guidance. beBee doesn't tell us what to do. After the initial euphoria of finding a happy home, the rants died down by themselves.

    #2 #1 re: Twitter.
    1 - A single tweet is a proverbial fart in a hurricane... useless just like a single radio spot is useless. My feed zooms along at 3000 tweets an hour. I see what I see and I don't see what I don't see. So what?
    2 - Twitter locks accounts up often. Their algorithm monitors for "unusual activity." That's not a big deal, unlock and that activity becomes "usual." A recent algorithm change locks 6X more than it used to. The Developer Community is annoyed. I'm coding an automated email to members if myTweetPack detects a lock. File that under P for poop happens. The alternative is to abandon the platform. Since it generates 65%+ of my site visits, I don't think I will. Like Gary Vee said, "Twitter is a marketer's dream"
    3- To continue the radio analogy, there are two types of people on Twitter, listeners and promoters. I'm talking to promoters here.
    4 - Without some sort of automation system, Twitter will not help you. PERIOD. Neither will Facebook. Even LinkedIn engagement is better on automated status updates than full posts.

    You don't like automation? Tough. It's here to stay. There is simply no alternative.

    To promote you MUST tweet a good mix of your stuff and that of others. The sweet spot is 50 to 100 a day. My accounts auto-add if they tweet < 50 and auto-delete > 125 are scheduled.

    Anything new is unusual. By definition, sudden changes are unusual activity. We suggest gradual changes. The alternative is to start hard, accept that you will be locked, unlock and continue.

    Following nobody, then 250 in one shot is definitely unusual. Getting locked was a guarantee. Same as some new members who tweet 5 times a day for months then 75 times the next. Locking is assured. No biggie.

    Dean, you did not do anything wrong. You can follow up to 1000 people a day to a max of 5000, or 10% more than follow you, total. Stick to 200 new followings a day and maintain a strict unfollow if not followed back system (3-day grace).

    #1 Thanks for your participation Dean. I'm not too worried about the Bots. People don't do plastic flowers, they do fresh! People ultimately vote with their feet. Also to find ways to hack social media doesn't work! Sometimes you just need to do the hard yards to get the real results.

    08/06/2017 #2 Rob Bacal
    I don't know what ambassadors are doing on Twitter, but I do know they've toned down their promotions and LinkedIn rants on LinkedIn itself, so I assume they received some guidance to dial it back. It WAS alienating a lot of LinkedIn people who didn't want to be bombarded by BeBee promos.

    I think @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian is good at understanding Twitter rules about bots, etc, but it's a tough task to know what Twitter will find Ok or not, since enforcement is often inconsistent.

    08/06/2017 #1 Dean Owen
    Need @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian to comment on this. I set up a new Twitter account last week and that day got blocked after following an initial 250 people. Personally I think the rage against the bots is a good thing.
