  4. Check Interval

  5. Max Posts Per UpdateAfter the time interval selection, you should determine max posts you desire for posting in each RSS update time.
    Don’t bother if you select max post per update over 1 post. Even you selected more than 1 post to Tweet per update, Circleboom does not send them at once to prevent spamming. Circleboom automatically puts 2 minutes between each post per interval. For Instance, if you select 3 posts per interval, Circleboom spread your posts over 6 minutes. This automation rule will protect you from becoming a spammer.
  6. Maximum Daily Post Count
    It is default 100 posts for each RSS Feed. You can change it up to the 240 post for each RSS feed.

4- Check your RSS Feed’s history and see how seamless we’re working.

At your RSS Feed list, you’ll see a “History” link. We keep every single Tweet we sent through your account and give you a chance to take a look.

The history page displays Tweets as Tweet-Cards. Each Tweet-Card contains some useful information;

  • Status indicator: Yellow means “Still waiting”, Green means “Sent”, and Red means “Fail”,
  • The Tweet text itself,
  • Date: Sent date or planned date,
  • Stats icon: If you activated Link Shortener for your RSS feed, you can reach detailed view & click history.
  • Globe icon: Takes you to the Tweet page,
  • Trash icon: Deletes item from your sent items. This won’t delete Tweet from your Twitter feed if it’s sent! Just some housekeeping for your Circleboom account.

Troubleshooting

  1. First; check your RSS Link if it is still valid or not.
  2. Second; check your daily limits. It is easy to exceed your daily limits. Don’t forget total daily Twitter Limits to tweet per day. You can check the updated limits https://help.twitter.com/tr/rules-and-policies/twitter-limits
  3. If the problem still persists, wait for a while. Sometimes the problem could be related to the Twitter API itself. Circleboom checks every RSS link regularly and tries to send your Tweets within your rate limits defined by Twitter.
