Twitter Issues **solved**

Post by Patrick_UK »

Is anybody else experiencing issues posting to Twitter?
Some days it has worked at hourly intervals and other days it might post once or twice and then not again for days.

Live data tab shows successful transfer to Twitter every hour.

Also I have noticed that if I do a hard power down, when it comes back up it then will post once or twice then stop again.

Is there a way to see what the response is from Twitter, like in a log file?
As Live Data screen says successful but still not showing in the feed. Getting a new pin doesn't work either.
Tried deleting the service and restarting everything but still not working.

you need to show what your posting ie
what message text is inside [ code ] [ / code]

This is mine:

Code: Select all

Time: [hh]:[mm] • Temp: [th0temp-act:--]°C • Wind: [wind0dir-act=endir:---] [wind0wind-act=mph.1:--] to [wind0wind-max10=mph.1:--]mph • Pressure: [thb0press-act:--]hPa • Rain: [rain0total-sumday]mm • Hum: [th0hum-act.0=:--]% • ET: [sol0evo-act.1=:--]mm • Solar: [sol0rad-act:--]W/m² • UV Index: [uv0index-act:--] • Sunrise: [mbsystem-sunrise:--] • Sunset: [mbsystem-sunset:--] • Cloudbase: #if#[th0temp-act.1:0.0]>[th0dew-act.1:0.0]#then#{*([th0temp-act.1:0.0]-[th0dew-act.1:0.0])*400*0}#else#0#fi#ft • #Conlig, #Bangor • bit.ly/2TzKYFb •

It is very similar to yours, I got from a template post on here. (yours I think) :)

Code: Select all

Time: [hh]:[mm] • Temp: [th0temp-act:--]°C • Wind: [wind0dir-act=endir:---] [wind0wind-act=mph.1:--] to [wind0wind-max10=mph.1:--]mph • Pressure: [thb0seapress-act:--]hPa • Rain: [rain0total-sumday]mm • Hum: [th0hum-act.0=:--]% • ET: [sol0evo-act.1=:--]mm • Solar: [sol0rad-act:--]W/m² • UV Index: [uv0index-act:--] • Sunrise: [mbsystem-sunrise:--] • Sunset: [mbsystem-sunset:--] • Cloudbase: #if#[th0temp-act.1:0.0]>[th0dew-act.1:0.0]#then#{*([th0temp-act.1:0.0]-[th0dew-act.1:0.0])*400*0}#else#0#fi#ft • [forecast-text] #Dunstable

I have finally figured out the issue. It was to do with have [forecast-text] at the end, sometimes the forecast line pushes the tweet over the limit so it just doesn't post it. I thought twitter would cut off the extra characters but not!

Thanks for letting us know. May be Meteobridge should cut the string? Is the limit you hit currently still 280?

I created a separate entry for Weather Forecast which I post every 3 hours on twitter. so never experienced this issue.

That is what I resorted to as a test, but have kept it now.
