My user contacted us more than 24 hours ago

Facebook Messenger is currently having a limitation forcing you to reach users less than a 24 hours window.

This 24 hours window is a protection from Facebook against unsolicited messages and spam. If a user contacts you, your team will be able to reply in the next 24 hours. If you send a message 25 hours later, your message will be refused by Facebook. If the user sends a new message, you will be able to contact him again.
