First of all I want to thank Thingspeak developers and its community because I find it a very useful tool!
I'm doing a university project reading values sent from a GPRS module. Values are updated correctly in the corresponding fields, each 2-3 min.
The problem comes when I want to send a tweet with ThingTweet and React. It should send me a tweet each time a specific field reaches a certain value, but it isn't doing it. This is the configuration I've:

It seems that when the condition is met the first time in some hours, it sends the tweet, but then, if condition is met another time in the next minutes (8-9min I've checked) it doesn't send the tweet. I don't know what could it be the issue? There's any kind of limit that makes React not working until the next hour or something like that? Thanks,

I just tested I react to a thingtweet that I have based on a numeric value for field 1 on a channel. I was able to trigger it once and then again 8 minutes later, with similar settings as yours.

Did you check the data in your channel to make sure it was updated? If you were rapidly updating, a post may have exceeded the rate limit and been denied. Also, sometimes numeric based reacts can be tricked by string like data. Make sure the post that you want to trigger the react does not have any non numeric characters in it, especially non printable ones.

You can test if the conditional setting is causing the failure by setting the condition to not equal to a string. I have attached an example of a react that I want to run every time I post any data to the channel.

If your channel is public, can you share the channel #?

Hi, thanks for your time. How did you tried React, with 'Run action only the first time the condition is met'? I can't see the image. That's the way I did and it doesn't work. The data I'm using is from field 6 from channel You can see in field 6 that data has been a lot of times over 50000 (the React threshold) and in the Twitter account: , there are only 11 tweets.
There are only numbers in my data, so I don't think it's related with string problems. I can't see the image (link broken it seems), so I don't know how to make that condition you are explaining.

Sorry, I cannot see the image you attached, but I am assuming you have set the React to "Run action each time the condition is met".

Another thing to keep in mind is that Twitter does not allow tweet with the same text to be sent multiple times.
This thread throws some light on that:

So if your tweet is of the same text, it might be blocked by Twitter and hence not posted.

Hope this helps.
