Its a good service but it looks like it is posting a lot of duplicates to posts already made.

I assume this is an automated service??

Problem is that a news story frequently gets re-edited numerous times during a day or two and AP/UPI/Reuters post each version. Thus if a bot is picking up these stories, they are likely to treat them as "different" each time, even if nothing but the spelling of someone's name changes.
