Troubleshoot duplicate posts in Facebook and Twitter

When you select more than one social account in the Composer, your post is published to all of those social accounts.

If only one account is selected but posts are publishing multiple times or to multiple accounts, it could be because your Twitter and Facebook accounts are linked, which lets you automatically share your Facebook posts to Twitter.

You can tell if the accounts are linked by looking at the duplicate post in your Hootsuite account. Duplicate tweets show via Facebook when you hover over the timestamp in Streams.

Unlink your Twitter account from Facebook

  1. Log in to facebook.com/twitter with your Facebook credentials.
  2. Under your name and Linked to Twitter, select Unlink from Twitter.
