Hi @robi 

Good question.

Using Zapier as a Twitter Auto-Responder

A Zap that auto-responds to search mentions is a violation of Twitter's policies for automation.

Twitter’s policy doesn’t allow replies or mentions in response to search mentions. If your Zap has a Search Mention trigger and an action that sends a Tweet to that user’s @username, the Tweet will be posted but the @ will be removed.

Twitter’s policies for automation don't allow @replies in response to search mentions. Here’s a link that discusses Twitter’s policies for using automations with their platform:


What types of files are supported when creating a Video/GIF tweet?

Videos and GIFs must be less than or equal to 15MB. Supported formats commonly used include .mp4 and .mov for videos and .gif for GIFs.

Note: Twitter may not accept media in a supported format if it does not meet the required specifications. You can learn more about the specifications and recommendations in Twitter's Media Best Practices documentation.
