Dry Run Filter and Retweet Report



Choosing correct retweet settings can be really confusing. Especially when you are a first time user of RoundTeam. We found the way to reduce the stress and make you feel confident about your choice. You can just use Dry Run filter to test your settings first before making actual retweets. So stay on the safe side and take a look at the three simple steps on how to do this:



Step 1: Log in to RoundTeam. Pause your Twitter account and create a new setting that you want to test.


Step 2: Apply the Dry Run filter and reactivate your Twitter account.

Step 3: View the 
Retweet History Column of your dashboard to see what was supposed to be retweeted.


Lets take a closer look at these Steps and add some details.


Step 1. Log in to your RoundTeam account. Click the settings wheel, then click the “Pause Activity” button in front of the Twitter account you want to test your settings on:


Choose a setting that you think you'd like to use and enter it to be retweeted by your Twitter account.


For the purpose of a vivid example, we decided to set up @RoundTeam_demo to retweet anything from the Twitter account @FortuneMagazine. We used the setting from:FortuneMagazine for this purpose. @RoundTeam_demo follows @FortuneMagazine so we placed this setting in the Followed category.


Here is how our setting looks like:



Step 2. Right after you added a new retweet setting, you will se a list of filters that can be applied.

Choose the Dry Run filter from the menu. 


Then click the “Save” button. 

After the Dry Run filter is set, reactivate your Twitter account. To do this click the “Resume Activity” button in front of the Twitter account name:


Note: Retweets produced with the Dry Run filter will count into the quota for 30 day retweet quota and Promotional Tweets.

Step 3. Allow RoundTeam about 5 - 10 mins for RoundTeam to retweet for you according to your newly applied retweet criteria. Complete information about how long it usually takes to make a retweet can be found here.

The third column of your RoundTeam Dashboard is the Retweet History column:


Your Retweet History displays Dry Run retweets as well as actual retweets that your account has made. Retweet History shows retweet statistics from up to the last 7 days.


In conclusion:

  • The Dry Run filter allows you to test new settings first, before making actual retweets. Stay risk-free: no more unwanted content among your retweets.
  • Look at the Retweet History and decide whether your new setting achieves your retweet goals on Twitter. If not – you can try new retweet criteria. Repeat Step 1 - Step 3 as many times as needed.
  • Dry Run is a great solution for your business Twitter account.

 Enjoy and happy retweeting!
