Hi,

(Don't go away, this is less of a noob question that it seems!... I think)
I've been doing airdrops for a month now, I also rarely use twitter (except for the airdrops).
I'm still not sure what to do when they ask us to "retweet" a post. Should we just retweet the post as it is, and then send them the link ? But in this case, I don't know if you noticed but the URL is the exact same one as the said tweet. So how do they know we posted it on our twitter page ? Now if we add and write something along with the retweet, we personalized the url and we are redirected this time to our twitter page... but then, would the bot be able to recognize the retweet ?

Sometimes i've seen airdrops expressly asking us to write something along with the retweet, otherwise it wouldn't count. So it would validate my concern that copy/past only the link of a "nude" retweet wouldn't count for any other airdrop and we would have to always add something to the retweet in order not to just give them the url of their own tweet. At the same time, since they have our username, the bot can check if there is a retweet of their tweet even if we didn't add something on it...

So at this point I'm clueless, i'm afraid that if I add something to the retweet it would invalidate everything, but maybe if I don't, it won't work either. Which one to do?

Thank you.

As you have noticed, if you retweet without adding anything (called simply retweet), it will not generate a link which contains your twitter handler. But if you retweet with adding some text or hashtags it will be shown under your profile and the link will contain your twitter handler. This is called "quote tweet". For airdrops, please use "quote tweet" as you can provide a direct link to that tweet confirming it is done using your twitter profile.

Ok that's what I've thought but I've seen countless and countless of retweets from other other people, especially on this forum on the airdrop section with bounties, copy/pasting the url of the "simple" RT, which was the url of the tweet basically, claiming it was their RT for the bounty. Are they all wrong ? (that's often the majority of the participant who does that from what I've seen).

They never specify how the bot works exactly so there is a legitimate doubt it. Maybe it checks on our username page the url of the "simple" RT or maybe it only validates commented RT of a specified airdrop tweet. It is not clearly stated from them.

Well, I had the same question about this matter whether Should I need to add something when retweeting or not. Because when we simply retweet something and get the related link ( even by going to our profile) it shows the original tweet link and not as our retweeted link. For many bounty ( or airdrops) they don't ask us to add something.We just need to simply retweet it. So I wonder how they find whether did we retweet it or not. Because the links shows as it is taken from the original tweet. Is there anyone who can tell me how they( bounty managers) identify whether the user retweeted it or not ?

Doing this will work only if they are not checking the link, but proper airdrop/bounty managers will check each and every link to verify you did it correctly. Once they check, your link will lead to an invalid link.
Don't do this, just do a quote tweet and you will be safe.

Thanks for the tip.

I keep an active list of airdrops if you copy / paste the twitter url in my signature. On my profile there's an easy to read Google spreadsheet that I update daily.

I weed out the obvious wastes of time. AELF and Swarm are good examples of active airdrops that are already on exchanges.

I always "just retweet" and receive the coins. I also don't think that a lot of airdrop managers really check the retweets, way too time-consuming.

I just usually retweet and give them the link like that except they specifically ask for a comment with the retweet, and I still get my tokens. So I don't think it is necessary to retweet with comment if they don't ask for it.
