Slack

Slack is a channel-based messaging platform. With Slack, people can work together more effectively, connect all their software tools and services, and find the information they need to do their best work — all within a secure, enterprise-grade environment.

Integrate the Slack API with the X (Twitter) API

Setup the Slack API trigger to run a workflow which integrates with the X (Twitter) API. Pipedream's integration platform allows you to integrate Slack and X (Twitter) remarkably fast. Free for developers.

Overview of Slack

The Pipedream Slack app enables you to build event-driven workflows that interact with the Slack API. Once you authorize the Pipedream app's access to your workspace, you can use Pipedream workflows to perform common Slack actions or write your own code against the Slack API.

The Pipedream Slack app is not a typical app. You don't interact with it directly as a bot, and it doesn't add custom functionality to your workspace out of the box. It makes it easier to automate anything you'd typically use the Slack API for, using Pipedream workflows.

  • Automate posting updates to your team channels
  • Create a bot to answer common questions
  • Integrate with your existing tools and services
  • And much more!

Overview of X (Twitter)

The Twitter API on Pipedream enables you to automate interactions with Twitter, from posting tweets to analyzing social media trends. Pipedream's serverless platform provides the tools to create workflows that trigger on specific Twitter activities, process data, and connect with countless other apps for extensive automation scenarios. With Pipedream's integration, you can listen for events such as new tweets, mentions, or followers, and execute actions like tweeting, retweeting, or even leveraging sentiment analysis to gauge public perception.

I'm going to build a workflow that will search Twitter every hour for a keyword. It will take the results, format them nicely, and then email it.
Building a Google Sheets Twitter Bot with Pipedream
Building a Google Sheets Twitter Bot with Pipedream
This is something that's been kicking around my head for a week or so and today I thought I'd try it. It ended up taking about 20 minutes total and 10 lines of code, of which 5 are a function I copied and pasted. While what I built is kind of trivial, I'm blown away by how much was done by built-in functions with Pipedream and how little work I had to do myself. In fact, most of my time was spent in setting stuff up outside of Pipedream itself. Alright, so what did I build?

Building a Twitter Bot in Pipedream
I did this by parsing information from the GI Joe wikipedia site and implementing it on Pipedream's platform. I'm going to share how I built it, but be aware that roughly 95% of the work was involved in getting my random character. The aspects that pertain to Pipedream were incredibly simple - which is what you want in a platform.

Building a Twitter Scheduling System with Pipedream and Google Sheets
Building a Twitter Scheduling System with Pipedream and Google Sheets
A few months ago, I blogged about how I used Pipedream and Google Sheets to create a Twitter bot. The idea was simple - read a sheet - select a random row - and use that as the source of a new Tweet. I was thinking about this recently and how useful Google Sheets can be as a "light weight CMS" and figured out another interesting use case - Twitter scheduling.
Airtable Webhooks with Slack + Pipedream
Airtable Webhooks with Slack + Pipedream
We love Airtable here at Pipedream. But Airtable lacks one killer feature — webhooks. We took advantage of Airtable’s Slack notifications and built a way to send webhooks to an HTTP endpoint every time a record is created or updated in a base. It takes 10 minutes to setup and it’s free.
