Hi @wenping.wang! It seems to me like there are simply two distinct accounts with the same name: their id differs, their creation date differs.

@majoritasdev
Thanks for the answer.

But we don’t remember have created the following one.

      "name": "Hottolink_AG",
      "business_name": null,
      "timezone": "America/Los_Angeles",
      "timezone_switch_at": null,
      "id": "18ce54kb0rt",

And we also cann’t find it at Ads UI (https://ads.twitter.com/accounts?lang=en) like the attachment file.

I see. That’s interesting, indeed, that it doesn’t appear in the Ads UI. I think someone from the Twitter Staff can help here.

But, is it possible that someone from your team, who has acces to this Ads account, to have created it? Maybe a former employee?.. Or maybe someone from the client’s part, Hotto Link Inc., has created the account.

Hey @wenping.wang

This question was already asked and answered on another thread: Why there are two accounts with same name

Thanks!
