        To view and edit these settings, click advanced settings under the Twitter follow settings.

        Please note:

        • The way you choose to name your earning rule here is only for internal management purposes. Your customers will not see this.

        Managing the rule status

        The rule status that is located next to the rule name tells you whether the rule is active on your site or not. If active, this means that the rule is running and customers are earning rewards.

        You can deactivate the rule if you want to. If you choose to deactivate the earning rule, it will no longer appear on your store and customers will stop earning rewards from it.
