# How Tweet Pup works
Tweet Pup works by engaging with your audience. When we like, retweet, and follow users that are potentially interested in your content, they will notice your account and follow you, visit your website, and like your tweets. Our settings allow you to laser-target your audience so that you aren't spamming anyone. The users you target will already be interested in what you have to offer.
# How often are actions performed
Tweet Pup works all day so you don't have to. Actions are performed throughout the day to engage your audience. You can change your settings to perform actions more or less often throughout the day. To change your settings: login, visit your dashboard, and click on Configure Promotion.
# How often is account information updated
Account information is shown on the top row of your dashboard. This shows your current number of followers, following, likes, and posts. It is updated each hour.
# How does pricing and trial work
When you sign up for a Tweet Pup account, you will be automatically given free access for 7 days. There are no payment details required for signing up for a trial.
After the trial expires, you can choose to sign up for a monthly subscription. Pricing works on a monthly basis. After providing your payment details, you will be billed monthly until you cancel your subscription. Our plans can be found here.
You can cancel your subscription at any time by logging in and visiting settings and clicking the Cancel Subscription button.
# Credit Card Security
For all payments, we use an industry standard PCI compliant payment processor. Your information is secure and will not be shared with anyone else. We do not store your credit card information.
# Hidden fees
There are no hidden or additional fees involved. You only pay the monthly price based on your plan. You will never get charged for anything else.
# Search Type
When Tweet Pup searches for users to perform actions on, you can choose between two different settings. See below for details on each of the setting types.
# Search By Keywords
This is the list of words that we will use to find users who are interested in you. You can add hashtags by adding a hashmark in front of your keyword like this #watches. If you add a - to the front of a keyword, we will avoid any tweets with that word. For example, this can be used to avoid a tweet mentioning a competitor, like this -casio. You can add as many keywords as you like but we recommend adding 10-15 keywords. When searching, we will find the latest tweets made with these keywords.
# Search By Users
We will find the followers of the listed Twitter handles to perform actions on. When using this setting, you should add Twitter handles who are highly related to your niche. To prevent running out of users to target, we recommend that you add at least 10 different Twitter handles. Because we are targeting the followers of these accounts, there is no guarantee that the tweets will be relevant to your niche, but you will know that the users are interested in your niche. You are not required to add the @ in front of each Twitter handle, either way will work.
# Avoid Accounts
This is the list of Twitter accounts that we should avoid. For example, this can be used to avoid liking tweets made by a competitor. You are not required to add the @ in front of each Twitter handle, either way will work.
# Avoid Keywords
Any tweets containing keywords listed here will be avoided. This list is case insensitive. For example, if this list contains "bad" then a tweet like "I'm having a BAD day" will be avoided.
# Following Count
This allows you to filter Twitter accounts based on the number of accounts they are following. Normally, real users don't follow millions of accounts so it's a good idea to only target users who follow 0 - 1M. Use the sliders to drag minimum and maximum number following you want to allow.
# Follower Count
This allows you to filter Twitter accounts based on the number of accounts that are following them. Change this setting based on the type of customer you want attract. Use the sliders to drag minimum and maximum number followers you want to allow.
# Tweet Count
This allows you to filter Twitter accounts based on the number tweets they have made. Normally, real users don't have millions of tweets so it's a good idea to only target users who have 0 - 1M tweets. Use the sliders to drag minimum and maximum number tweets you want to allow.
If the Follow Enabled box is checked, Tweet Pup will follow users based on the criteria that you specified.

# Mute After Follow New
When this checkbox is checked, Tweet Pup will automatically mute any users that are followed. Checking this box will prevent your Twitter feed from becoming cluttered with lots of tweets.
If the Unfollow Enabled box is checked, Tweet Pup will unfollow users that we have previously followed after a few days. We will not unfollow users that you have followed by yourself.

You can also choose to target a user more than once with the Max Likes Per User setting. This setting allows multiple likes to occur for a single user. If you are using the Search By Keyword setting and the user has multiple recent mentions of one of your keywords, they will be liked. If you are using Search By User, the most recent tweets made by the user will be liked.
If the Unlike Enabled box is checked, Tweet Pup will unlike tweets that we have previously followed after a few days. We will not unlike tweets that you have liked by yourself.
You can adjust the number of days we wait to unlike with the Unlike After Days setting.
# Avoid Sensitive Tweets
If the Avoid Sensitive Tweets box is checked, we will avoid tweets that have been marked as sensitive by Twitter. For example, adult or violent tweets.
# Avoid Profanity
If the Avoid Profanity box is checked, we will avoid tweets that have any English bad words. Each of the bad words is intelligently found. For example, we look for simple matches like "badword" we also look for:
- Substitution. Example: "bâdΨ0rd"
- Obscured. Example: "b|a|d|w|o|r|d"
- Doubled. Example: "bbaaddwwoorrdd"
- Any combination of those. Example: "b|â|d|Ψ|0|rr|d"
# Avoid Followers New
If the Avoid Followers box is checked, we will avoid tweets made by users who are already following you. This way, you don't waste time performing actions on users who won't increase your following.
