Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

Connecting Social Accounts

Post by bootsie0126+ » 22 Mar 2018, 09:37

I am a new member to Twitter. I created a profile and got my twitter handle (@morgancynthia01) and right now only have three (3) followers. Is there a minimum number of followers someone must have in order to connect their account on the Social Profile page in order to earn points in the Daily Giveaway.

When I try to connect the account either using my handle or Twitter URL, I am getting the following error listed below:

The Twitter link you entered (listed above) is invalid has 0 followers. For reference, the twitter handle you entered has been parsed as follows.

Handle: @morgancynthia01
URL: https://twitter.com/morgancynthia01

The twitter you entered has been rejected and removed. Please fix below.

You need to follow Scott and the OnlineBookClub.org on Twitter.

I got an email that I was disqualified for not sharing via Twitter 3/29/18, but I've checked all my social profiles and can prove that I did indeed tweet the BOTD that day. Is there any way to contest the disqualification?

Did you share the book via the button on the Giveaway page?

Yes, and I clicked through all the social profiles links to be sure they worked.

I am following both Scott Hughes and OnlineBookClub on Twitter and I am still receiving the same issue. So what do I do?

Make sure the URL leads to your profile.
