  • Doing this should pull in any new lists you've created so that you can view them on your profile.

If you are getting below error messages on Circleboom and having difficulty creating or managing your lists, read on to find out the possible causes of your issue and how to fix them.

Error Messages :

"The list currently has 5,000 members in it. Lists cannot have more than 5,000 members."

"The list currently has {0} members in it, and it will pass the 5,000 limit when you add selected {1} members to it. Lists cannot have more than 5,000 members."

"We couldn't add your selection to the list at this time. Please try again in 15 minutes."

Other possible causes of your issue and how to fix them

Twitter List limits

Some limits on Twitter lists to be aware of are:

  • 1000 lists permitted per account
  • 5000 accounts permitted per list
  • List names cannot exceed 25 characters
  • List names cannot begin with a numerical character
  • Twitter may limit adding more than 1000 accounts to a list per day.
  • If you've already added 1000 accounts to your lists, you may need to wait a day or two before Twitter reinstates your limits.

Replies on lists

  • Replies work the same way for lists as they do for accounts. For example, if @TwitterSupport and @twitter are on a list and mention each other, those replies will appear in the list. However, if only @TwitterSupport is on a list and @TwitterSupport replies to @twitter, the reply will not appear on the list.
  • There is no feature that enables list owners to send a message to every account on a list.

Accounts with protected Tweets on lists

  • Accounts that have opted to protect their Tweets can be added to lists. However, you will only see an account’s protected Tweets if you have been approved to follow that account.
  • Other people who view your list will likewise only see an account’s protected Tweets if they have been approved to follow that account.
