Twitter API Limits - User is over daily status update limit, network Twitter

The Impact of Twitter API Limits on Zift Social Syndication
 
Twitter began enforcing new rate limits on API usage on 22 October 2018. An explanation of the limits can be seen here.
 
You may receive this error message on a Twitter post that has not been sent, User is over daily status update limit, network Twitter. 
 
What is the impact on Zift? 
Once the Zift platform has posted 300 posts to Twitter within a 3 hour period all additional posts are blocked by Twitter until the 3 hours have expired. 
 
What has Zift done to address it?
When notified of this pending change, Zift requested "elevated POST access" for the platform in accordance with Twitter requirements. That request was denied. Unfortunately, Twitter's denial came after an extended delay. 
 
What is Zift doing about it? 
Zift Product Management is in the process of developing a strategy to comply with Twitter's new requirements. As the strategy develops we will keep you posted on the pending changes and their respective timelines. 
 
10 December 2018 Update
While we work with Twitter, we will use this schedule for posting. If you select to auto-schedule your social post, we will attempt to publish according to the schedule below. 
 
Initial Scheduling Buckets
 
Monday - Sunday
  • 9:00 - 9:30 AM
  • 10:00 - 10:30 AM
  • 1:00 - 1:30 PM
  • 2:00 - 2:30 PM

If the tweet fails to post in its selected time bucket, we will reschedule for the next available time bucket. We will continue to try to post until we reach a "reset point". Once the "reset point" is reached, we will schedule the post for Saturday.
