for the past 2 days, my twitter feed has been eratic.

My last trade shown on Tweeted was 9 hours ago (a sell of 7.9 lots) the trade was closed and another opened and closed after that. Yet the closing of that trade did not get Tweeted, neither the opening and closing of the following trade. Also several trades prior to the 7.9 lots trade did not get Tweeted.

Something odd is happening there.

My Live account is also set for Tweeting, could it be causing the problem as I did not set the setting to all accounts to tweet from the same setup?

Also it does not Tweet the System Name, so one can not see on the Twiiter site which trade Tweeted comes from which account.

BlueMental, we haven't experienced any downtime with the twitter functionality.

After a quick check on their status page - https://status.twitter.com/ - you can see they've experienced some errors lately.

As to your last issue - we haven't added the option of tweeting a system's name since we can't control the length of the tweet (which is limited). Also since you can connect each trading account with a different twitter account, you should be able to get the same result.

Thanks.

Can always just put that as a post or prefix. Each account twitters individually, so just add the number in the fixes..

Wise idea Elkart. Like perhaps a 2 character prefix. Should be enough to not exceed the length. 'D1' for demo account 1, 'L1' for live account 1 etc.

Staff, I am sure that the Twitter thing will work itself out eventually. I will leave it for a few more days, and if it still continues I will cancel then re-open the Twiiter to Mfxbook link. That should fix some Gremlins have crept in there.

Thanks.

Lance I'm sure twitter is having issues. The fx book side is fine.

OK, here is what I did.

I closed my Twitter connections, both in Myfxbook, and on Twitter Settings. Then I recreated the links on Myfxbook.

They are now working 100% again. It must have been some corrupt data that crept in to something somewhere.

I also used the prefix, and it is great. Simpler than separate Twitter accounts for each Forex system.

You're indeed cheap. We'll see what we can do 😄

Hopefully you don't drink and trade. Do you?

Maybe.

Keith Floyd did really well with his cooking show and he drank all the time. I might find some inspiration there: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keith_Floyd

We're not going to argue with a well proven recipe are we?
