Twitter on no business data allowed list

When using Twitter Connector, I want to be able to pull tweets from a specific user into a Teams Channel. This is only a "pull" from Twitter to Teams. However, I get a message "Your flow was created, but it is currently suspended since it uses a combination of connectors that conflict with the company data loss prevention policies". Would be great if this policy could distinguish between Inbound and Outbound connections. I find it hard to understand how pulling posts into my Corporate Team could be considered a potential "loss of company data".

Hi @roscoevm,


Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Further, could you please share a bit more about your scenario?


I suppose that you or your organization have set up a Data Loss Prevention (DLP) policy within your Flow environment, is it true? The DLP policy could ensure that data is managed in a uniform manner across the organization and prevent important business data from being accidentally published to connectors such as social media sites.


More details about setting a Data Loss Prevention policy within Microsoft Flow, please check the following article:

Hi, yes we do have a DLP policy in place. That is where my proposal comes in to play...instead of the DLP blocking ALL traffic, I am requesting that the policy be able to to discern between inbound and outbound traffic. So we can allow inbound tweets to be posted, but not send tweets to Twitter.
