Twitter for Slack
The Twitter app brings tweets to Slack. You can automatically update a channel when tweets are sent from your company Twitter account, or easily track every mention of your Twitter @username. And here’s the coolest part: your tweets and mentions are easily searchable in Slack!
Set up the Twitter app
Twitter app page in Slack's App Directory. Click
Add to Slack. Click
Add Twitter Integration. To authenticate with Twitter, click
Authorize app. Enter the Twitter @username you’d like to track in Slack.
Select the tweets you want to see. (If nothing is selected, no tweets will be displayed.)
Decide where you’d like the tweets to appear: you can select an existing channel or create a new one.
When you’re finished, click
Here’s an example of what updates from Twitter look like in Slack:
Ideas for using the Twitter app
Now that you’ve connected Twitter to your Slack workspace, you can keep tabs on all kinds of topics from Twitter:
Get updates from services you rely on. When a feature is added or there's an outage, you can stay up-to-date in Slack.
Follow similar businesses in a #friendly-competition channel to keep tabs on what your competitors are up to in real-time.
Organize! Gather tweets from every company-owned account in one place, so everyone knows what's being said.
Add local transit info tweets to your office channel, so people know when bridges or bus lines are closed before commuting to or from work.
Have more than one Twitter account? Head back to the Twitter app page and click Add Configuration again to get those tweets flowing into Slack as well.
