to be clear, you want a twitter account you have, to RT any public tweet on Twitter with the hashtag #wellington in it?

automatically
Yes that's it

so you tweet something on twitter and put the #wellington

the process sees that even though I am not following you or you are not following me . My tweeter account then retweets so it ends up in my feed

why don't you just use something like tweetdeck, and create a column to stream the #wellington in? you don't need to retweet stuff to be able to monitor it.

I use tweetdeck to do just that ! but when somone writes something about wellington I want to be able to retweet that out to followers of @secret_wlg. I need to be able to do this automatically

Seems to be working
Will post more after a few days testing I still might buy the other software as It may well prove to be less cumbersome than this process
