What Is Spintax?

Spintax (also called spintext or text spinner) is a helpful feature that can add variations in the comments or replies you automate on social media. In addition, spintax will prevent posting the same message repeatedly, which ultimately can trigger warnings if you are not careful.

While you could achieve the same from a Google Sheet column containing the comments you want to randomly post, spintax offers a convenient way to do it all at once with one single text input.

At the moment, the two automation modules that support this feature in TexAu are:

  • LinkedIn Auto Comment automation
  • Reply To A Tweet Using Spintax
  • ... soon, the same will be made for Instagram toopslij

How to Use Spintax in your Messages

The above text input will give this random output:

  • Excellent!
  • Wonderful!
  • Thanks for the share!
  • Amazing!
  • Fascinating insights!

Each word separated by the vertical line "|" (also called pipe symbol) inside the brackets {} will be spun randomly. The exclamation mark "!" character will apply to each word individually.

Simply put: each word inside the brackets will spin while the word outside those will remain unchanged.

Spintax can be used in more advanced ways like this:

This can replicate the same auto comment feature you could find on tools like Lempod or Podawa but with the advantage in TexAu to be far more selective on the posts you want to interact with.

You could comment on a post from a particular hashtag or keyword from content searches. Additionally, it could be from someone you follow in your network. Instead of liking random posts from people in your pod, you don't necessarily align with. A common issue with many pod tools...

Ok, that's cool, but... how do I type the pipe "" symbol on my keyboard? 😅 🤔

On Mac:

Alt + Shift + L

or

Shift + \
