RSS to Twitter - can delays be added inbetween tweets?

I've got an RSS to Twitter flow that is partially failing due to multiple items appearing in the RSS at the same time and Twitter only allowing the first through and blocking the others as potential spam.


Is there a way to update my flow so that delays are added between each tweet?


Would a "Delay" that is configured to run after a "Post a new tweet" fails with another "Post a new tweet" after that work, or would it only work for the first two RSS items?


Or is there another way to put a 10 minute gap between each tweet?

Hi @BlakeB ,


You can store RSS data in a SharePoint list, such as creating an RSS List like the screenshot below. Then post twitter via SharePoint list. You can configure your flow according to the screenshots as below.

Step1: Store RSS data in the SharePoint list

Step2: Add a Do until action, Judging condition is length(body('Get_items')?['value']), and add action get items to get an item that have not post.

Step3: add a condition that judge the value of action Get items whether not empty

                -if yes, Post a tweet, and set the item Post status as Yes.

                -if no, do nothing.

Step4: After the apply to each action, add an action Delay, cause the limit of twitter connector, connectors/twitter, API call rate limit for POST operation: 12 per hour, so you should set the delay time more than 5 minute.
