  3. Reconnect your Twitter account


1. Troubleshooting and best practices

For Loomly to access your social accounts, it requires access tokens which authorizes Loomly to publish on your behalf. Access tokens are provided by the social media network when you connect your account through an industry-standard process called OAuth

These access tokens might expire for several reasons:

  • Updated social account credentials

  • Explicit lifespans of an access token

  • Loomly losing permissions to publish such as revoked permission settings or connected profile no longer has Admin access

  • Social media platform update

This is why you might have to reconnect your social accounts from time to time.

Please note that for Twitter, access tokens do not usually expire, but it happens from time to time when Twitter sees duplicate content or spam-like behavior in which case you may need to reconnect your account in Loomly.

If a post fails even after, we recommend following these steps in chronological order:

  1. Please review the error to better understand why it failed.

  2. Disconnect by hitting the red 'x' for the social media platform that failed, then connect

2. Twitter common errors

Error: Account is temporarily locked

Log in to your Twitter account and review how to unlock it. As soon as this is done, Loomly will be able to post to Twitter on your behalf.

Error: Over capacity

This error usually occurs due to temporary API downtime.

Our suggestion would be to manually publish the post and then mark the post as published in Loomly. Otherwise, you can try rescheduling the post later to see if it successfully publishes as this is a temporary error.

3. Twitter reconnections

To Reconnect your LinkedIn account:

Once you do that, you will be prompted to log in again to Twitter, and this should reset the connection.

Here are a couple of tips:

  • Make sure you are logged in to the right Twitter account in your browser so we can detect it before you reconnect your Twitter account.

  • You can reconnect all of your Twitter accounts once this has been completed from here.

  • You can also view any Social Account requires attention due to failures or expiration from here.
