JustRetweet Adds Bump Tweet Feature

After my latest round of updates last week, several of you noticed that the Edit Tweet function had gone missing. This meant there was no way to add more credits to existing tweets without resubmitting a new tweet with the exact same content. The downside of this is that you will often get retweets again from many of the same members who promoted your content before. Not exactly ideal…

Well the Edit Tweet function is back which means you can now add more promotions to your old tweets again. Still, there is the issue that older tweets don’t get the same exposure in the system that newly submitted tweets do.

So over the past couple of days, I’ve been coding up an “experimental” new feature which will now allow you to bump your tweets. A bumped tweet will go to the top of the JustRetweet queue, but will not be visible to members who have already promoted your tweet before.

This should give your tweets, especially the quality ones, a chance to get even better results that weren’t possible before.

Bumping Rules

Of course this would be complete chaos if everyone could bump their tweets at any time. So there are some rules in place to (hopefully) prevent this from happening.

  1. Only tweets that have been promoted more than 10 times can be bumped.
  2. Tweets have to be live for more than 24 hours before they can be bumped.
  3. Bumped tweets count towards your submission limit of 3 tweets in the last 24 hours.
  4. Bumping a tweet costs 100 credits, plus the credit cost of any additional promotions you want to add.

How To Bump Your Tweet

Under your Most Recently Submitted Tweets (Submit Tweet tab) you will see a new Bump tweet icon next to any of your existing tweets that are eligible to be bumped.

Click on that icon for the tweet you want to bump and you will see a popup that looks like this.

In this popup, you will see the tweet itself, plus how many promotions it currently has left if any. You can add additional promotions to the tweet if you want as well. At the top you can see the total credit cost for bumping the tweet.

Once you’re happy with your settings, hit the Bump It! button and your bumped tweet will be queued up like any newly submitted tweet.

My goal is for this new bump tweet feature to allow you to get more promotions than ever for your tweets. It’s hard to say what will happen to the JustRetweet ecosystem when you introduce a feature like this, but you never know until you test it out live.

If you have any feedback (good or bad) or find any bugs, please let me know and I can fix things.
