The MarriottRewards Twitter feed seems to be filled with replies to the effect of "send us a DM, we'll look into it," or "we're working hard to get to all of our DMs." I guess they're busy. A learning process for them as well.

Watch the video below carefully, and notice that right around 1:26 in, visible in the column at right, under "Source," IFTTT is clearly listed, so I'm quite sure MarriottRewards has no doubts regarding the origin of the tweets they've been awarding points to. I had been wondering about the erratic nature of the "pointing" if you will, but the metadata makes it clearer.

I counted the number of @marriottRewards replies with that message over that period.

Looks like no points this Sunday. At least they didn't say it's done for good.
We’re taking a “bye week” from trivia! Stay tuned for more chances to score #RewardsPoints.

Everyone be aware that it isn't instantaneous. Could be 5 or 10 mins before the points arrive in your account (and same for the autotweet reply).

My first tweet took over 20 mins for the points to arrive, no email confirmation as yet also. Maybe the thousands of tweets are slowing down the crediting part of their system.

Very likely. Judging by the tweets immediately after 6pm, the tweet confirmations were pretty instantaneous, but as the hour wore on it slowed down.

Heck of a delay!

This continues to be the promo of the year. I keep thinking I'm going to wake up.
