Add Twitter to Slack
The Twitter app brings tweets directly into Slack. You can use it to automatically update a channel whenever tweets are sent from your company Twitter account, or easily track every mention of your Twitter @username. Going forward, your tweets and mentions will be easily searchable in Slack.
Set up the Twitter app
Twitter app page. Next to the team name, click
Add Twitter Integration. You’ll be asked to authenticate with Twitter. To continue, click
Authorize app. Enter the Twitter @username you’d like to track in Slack.
Select the tweets you want to see. (Note that if nothing is selected here, 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
You’re all done! Updates from Twitter will begin to appear in the designated Slack channel.
Tip: Once you add the Twitter integration, you can use it to track whatever you like. For teams on the Free plan, it only counts as one integration.
Ideas for using the Twitter app
Now that you’ve connected Twitter to your Slack team, 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'll find out 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.
