Every 3rd of the month a new Tweetathon will be held as always. With the new and improved TeamYu.net site, a preloaded tweet can be set up using this page called AutoTweet. Click this link to find out. Post questions here if you have any trouble.


About the results:
Quote from: Team Yu
As we mentioned in another post before the event started, we're aiming to take the focus off stats and figures for a while to avoid pinning everything on a high score chase. The overall reach is important of course but for a while at least it's time to concentrate on the individual building blocks that we each control, to ensure we're all doing the most that we can and not just baiting our breath for a number that may be largely down to other supporters.


(But for the record, it appears to be higher yet again.)

Basically, the results were brilliant as usual, and perhaps an improvement on the month before.

And as Giorgio said, instead of Thunderclap, now the Team Yu site has its own version of that code built into it now. You can find it by going to the "autotweet" link under the banner.

James is on vacation for the next week or so, too, with limited internet access. We're also waiting on someone to get back to us regarding the contest results.

I love the new autotweet feature.  It will help me to get family and friends involved since they won't have to sign up every month.  I didn't like IFTTT because it needed DM permissions so this is much better.


I feel that the autotweet feature should be made more obvious.  Maybe above the current YouTube video so that people know where to go.

Will the autotweet thunderous tweets happen still after the 24hour tweetathon?
Will it remain the same?
I noticed this month alot of people signed up an hour before the burst :)

It will be around the same time as the old Thunderclap tweets, which is evening US time/late night UK time.

We'll be doing more to make the AutoTweet feature stand out on the site in the next couple weeks, but right now it's difficult to make the updates that we'd like to due to very limited web access. Please bear with us! :)

I see the new Autotweet graphic... but I'm not sure if it's prominent enough.

I feel it should be literally front and centre above (or below) the campaign into text.  I had to really look for it before I noticed it was there.

Don't mean to be negative.  Just some constructive criticism ;)
