Connecting your channels to StoryChief is a breeze, but occasionally you may need to reconnect to keep publishing your content. We will explore how to reconnect your channel in this help article.

Why is it disconnected?

Connections between your social accounts and StoryChief require access tokens, which can become invalid for different reasons like changing your password, if the token has expired or if the social media platform has invalidated the token for security reasons.
