How to set the times of flow running and limit it within 50 per day?

Hi, I'm making a flow that sync my RSS to my Twitter/Facebook.

Ususally the RSS updates 100+ every day. But I don't want every article sync to my tweet/thread, that will cause fans unfollow my account.

So I plan to limit the daily running of the flow with 50 times. But I don't know how to do that.

I guess probably I need to add 'if yes then, if no then'. If the amount meet 50 then the flow stops or proceed with empty execution.


Could you help me think about how to design the flow and make it possible?

You can use an Excel with OneDrive connector.  Every time flow runs it check how many times the flow has run today and everytime a flow run you update the column in Excel.


The trick will be to have another flow that runs at 12:00 mid night to reset the value in excel sheet otherwise the flow will not run the next dat.
