Have Your Searches Frozen On @HootSuite? One Simple Tip To Get Them Working Again

Earlier today I noticed that the searches I had running over various Twitter profiles in HootSuite had stopped updating. Further investigation revealed that some of these had been frozen since Friday.

At first I assumed it was an issue with my computer, but after doing a little digging on Twitter I discovered it was far from an isolated incident.

Thankfully, it’s a very simple fix.

HootSuite has its own cache, and to resolve this issue all you need to do is refresh it.

To do this:

  1. In HootSuite, click on Settings and then Preferences
  2. Click on Clear cached messages

This should immediately get your searches going and bang up-to-date across all of your HootSuite profiles.

If you continue to have issues with isolated profiles, you can take a second step.

  1. Click on the arrow that opens the dropdown menu on the top right of the frozen search pane
  2. Select Preferences
  3. Click on Save Changes – there’s no need to amend your search keywords or make any other adjustments

One or both of these steps should get you back on the road. I did this several hours ago today and my searches have been fine ever since.
