Auto-post error on Twitter


The requested resource does not exist.

You will need to swap the media and re-save it to the schedule. This just means that the media did not save properly when you were scheduling your auto-post the first time, so if you swap the media by uploading the same image again, and rescheduling, it should work for you next time.
