Thanks for the prompt response. Yes, the request is timing out with no response right now. We've seen sporadic behavior like this the last few days and we've built in retry mechanisms so messages aren't getting lost. As far as I understand, posts of statuses aren't being rate limited so this shouldn't be a problem. Individual account rate limits aren't being hit (we tested one account and when the rate per day was hit, we were getting actual error responses regarding this limit).
However, the retry mechanisms are failing because the post succeeds, yet the text being posted is not the one we're posting. Instead, we get the post from the previous successful message about 2 hours ago. Sent for posting: Hv 2 catch up on the scriptures: He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed is into the kingdom of the Son of His love. COLOSSIANS 1:13 The response shows the succesful post, but the text is the previous post from 20 minutes ago: <text>hi</text> Entire response is below.
