After the time interval selection, you should determine max posts you desire for posting in each RSS update time.
You can send up to 5 posts per update and 240 posts per feed per day. To prevent spam, Circleboom does not send them at once. We automatically put 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.

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 posted! Just some housekeeping for your Circleboom account.

- First; check your RSS Link if it is still valid or not.
- Second; check your daily limits. Exceeding your daily limits is easy. 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
- 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.
