Details

This integration uses pre-built, open source components from Pipedream's GitHub repo. These components are developed by Pipedream and the community, and verified and maintained by Pipedream.

To contribute an update to an existing component or create a new component, create a PR on GitHub. If you're new to Pipedream component development, you can start with quickstarts for trigger span and action development, and then review the component API reference.

Trigger Authentication

Slack uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Slack account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Slack and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Slack API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

Action Configuration

This component may be configured based on the props defined in the component code. Pipedream automatically prompts for input values in the UI.

LabelPropTypeDescription
TwittertwitterappThis component uses the Twitter app.
Statusstatusstring

The text of the status update. Note: In order to comply with Twitter’s
terms of service, this text will have all @mentions removed.
Please refer to our docs for more details.

In Reply To Status IDinReplyToStatusIdstring

The ID of an existing status that the update is in reply to. Note: This
parameter will be ignored unless the author of the Tweet this parameter
references is mentioned within the status text. Therefore, you must
include @username , where username is the author of the referenced
Tweet, within the update.

Auto Populate Reply MetadataautoPopulateReplyMetadataboolean

If set to true and used with in_reply_to_status_id, leading
@mentions will be looked up from the original Tweet, and added to the
new Tweet from there. This will append @mentions into the metadata
of an extended Tweet as a reply chain grows, until the limit on
@mentions is reached. In cases where the original Tweet has been
deleted, the reply will fail.

Exclude Reply User IdsexcludeReplyUserIdsstring

When used with auto_populate_reply_metadata, a
comma-separated list of user ids which will be removed from the
server-generated @mentions prefix on an extended Tweet. Note that
the leading @mention cannot be removed as it would break the
in-reply-to-status-id semantics. Attempting to remove it will be
silently ignored.

Attachment URLattachmentUrlstring

In order for a URL to not be counted in the status body of an extended
Tweet, provide a URL as a Tweet attachment. This URL must be a
Tweet permalink or Direct Message deep link. Arbitrary, non-Twitter
URLs must remain in the status text. URLs passed to the
attachment_url parameter not matching either a Tweet permalink or
Direct Message deep link will fail at Tweet creation and cause an
exception.

Media IDsmediaIdsstring

A comma-delimited list of media_ids to associate with the Tweet. You
may include up to 4 photos or 1 animated GIF or 1 video in a Tweet.

Possibly SensitivepossiblySensitiveboolean

If you upload Tweet media that might be considered sensitive content
such as nudity or medical procedures, you must set this value to true.
If this parameter is included in your request, it will override the user’s
preferences.

Latitudelatstring

The latitude of the location this Tweet refers to.

Longitudelongstring

The longitude of the location this Tweet refers to.

Place IDplaceIdstring

A place in the world. These IDs can be retrieved from geo/reverse_geocode

Display CoordinatesdisplayCoordinatesboolean

Whether or not to put a pin on the exact coordinates a Tweet has been
sent from.

Trim UsertrimUserboolean

When set to true, the response will include a user object including
only the author's ID.

Enable DM CommandsenableDmcommandsboolean

When set to true, enables shortcode commands for sending Direct
Messages as part of the status text to send a Direct Message to a user.
When set to false, it turns off this behavior and includes any leading
characters in the status text that is posted.

Fail DM CommandsfailDmcommandsboolean

When set to true, causes any status text that starts with shortcode
commands to return an API error. When set to false, allows shortcode
commands to be sent in the status text and acted on by the API.

Card URIcardUristring

Associate an ads card with the Tweet using the card_uri value from any
ads card response.

Action Authentication

Twitter uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Twitter account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Twitter and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account.
