Sometimes this error message may appear on your X feed. There are many reasons behind this, like a bad internet connection, an X server down, X rate limits, an outdated app, and many other technical problems, etc. If you are also troubled by this problem on Twitter, then I have shared below how to fix cannot retrieve posts at this time on X.

9 Ways to Fix ‘Cannot Retrieve Posts at This Time’ on X (Twitter)

#1. Check if X Server is Down

It is mostly seen that due to X server downtime or outage, users around the world are troubled by the ‘Cannot retrieve posts at this time’ error. Since X is an online platform, all services are server-based. So many times, there is a server outage during server maintenance by engineers, due to which you may encounter this ‘cannot retrieve tweets at this time’ error message.

#2. Check Your Internet Connectivity

If the X server is live but you are still encountering the ‘Cannot retrieve posts at this time’ message, then one reason could be a slow internet connection. If you are using X on Android, iPhone, or desktop (PC), then you should first do an internet speed test. If the internet is really poor or not working, then you should switch to another, stronger Wi-Fi.

#3. Rate Limits Problems

When Twitter changed to X, a new policy called Rate Limits was added, which gives users a limit on the view number of daily tweets. The main objective of implementing this policy was to stop data scraping and system manipulation. So if you have crossed the daily limit, then you will see an error message on the screen.

The rate limits are as follows:

  • Verified accounts (Blue subscribers) can read up to 10,000 tweets.
  • Unverified accounts (Nonsubscribers) can read up to 1,000 tweets.
  • Newly created unverified accounts (New Nonsubscribers) can read up to 500 tweets.

If you are also a nonsubscriber and you are facing ‘Cannot retrieve posts at this time’ then you can buy X premium subscription. After taking a premium subscription, you will be added to the Blue Subscriber class. Then you will not see this problem.

#4. Clear X App Cache

Sometimes a corrupt X app cache prevents many functions from working. And you may have to encounter many types of error codes or error messages. You can fix these problems by clearing the corrupt X app cache.

To clear X (formerly Twitter) cache on Android:

  • Launch Settings on Your Phone and Tap on Apps.
  • Tap on All Apps or Manage Apps.
  • Find X App and Tap on It.
  • Tap on Storage Cache > Clear Cache.

#6. Update X App to the Latest Version

If you are still using the outdated version of the X app, then most likely you will face different types of problems. This also includes the error message ‘Cannot retrieve posts at this time’. First of all, go to the Google Play Store and Apple App Store and update the X app. Then check if the problem still exists.

#7. Disable VPN on Your Device

Often, users use a VPN (virtual private network) to access Twitter from other regions. Sometimes VPNs prevent new tweets from loading on your X feed. If you are also using a VPN, then it can route your internet traffic. Due to this, there may be difficulty accessing some platforms. In such a situation, you should turn off your VPN; this can fix the Twitter tweet loading problem.
