Building Communities

RoundTeam unveils new way to communicate on Twitter. You can build closed communities on Twitter by using RoundTeam and its automatic retweeting features. Community members have the opportunity to share relevant tweets without following each other directly. The main idea of this approach is to define unique #hashtag and configure it to be retweeted from followers of selected Twitter account.

Engage your followers into a conversation by re-posting their Tweets into a community feed:


Here is a step-by-step tutorial on how it works.


Step 1. Choose a Twitter account to represent your community and connect it to RoundTeam.


Go to and "Sign in with Twitter" at the top of the page with the Twitter account you would like to use for the purposes of creating a community.

Step 2. Configure retweets for your Twitter account.

You will see the following page after you connect your Twitter account to RoundTeam. This is your retweeting dashboard:


For Community Building purposes you need to define unique hashtag to be retweeted. Let’s use #community as an example. Click “ the Add item" button in “Tweets” category and type your hashtag in the available field:


Finish with the “Save” button.

Here's the new configuration:



Now you are done!


To continue building your community you’ll need to engage other people to follow this account on Twitter. Ask them to add the #hashtag that you selected (#community in our example) to their tweets, that are addressed to the community. As a result, when somebody from the community account's followers will tweet something with the defined #hashtag, this tweet will be automatically retweeted to the community Twitter feed and all Followers will see it. They will be able to reply (also with the use of the defined #hashtag) and will keep the conversation going!

Don’t forget about RoundTeam’s powerful filters. Any 10 of them can be additionally applied to each retweet item. Read more about how it can be done here.
