I didn't get any notification about that tweet and when I click on the tweet, it hasn't been answered. I'll just retweet it, but I thought I should mention it so people will know that they should check that their tweets get registered.

Out of these bots only the SC one will let you know if your tweet failed.


Maybe it is just my timing when I send them since I send the SC & 6WC tweets all in a row. So when one is slower to get a response it's much more obvious.

Sorry I tweeted a whole week's minutes in one go. My computer was down for a week.

Darn. I was positive that it was ending on Sunday the 11th, so I missed the last day. :o

I hope that people have noticed (and appreciate) that when I start 6WC threads, I always put the start and end dates in the first post.
