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 Code

const twitterlabs = require('../../twitter_labs.app.js')

const axios = require('axios')

module.exports = {
  key: "twitter_labs-new-tweet-metrics",
  name: "New Tweet Metrics",
  version: "0.0.1",
  props: {
    db: "$.service.db",
    timer: {
      type: "$.interface.timer",
      default: {
        intervalSeconds: 900,
    id: "string",

  async run(event) {
    const Twit = require('twit')
    const { api_key, api_secret_key, access_token, access_token_secret } = this.twitterlabs.$auth
    const T = new Twit({
      consumer_key: api_key,
      consumer_secret: api_secret_key,
      timeout_ms: 60 * 1000,
      strictSSL: true,

    const _isEqual = require("lodash.isequal")

    const metrics = (await T.get('https://api.twitter.com/labs/1/tweets/metrics/private', { ids: this.id })).data.data[0]
    const lastmetrics = this.db.get("lastmetrics")
    if (lastmetrics && _isEqual(lastmetrics, metrics)) return
      id: metrics.tweet_id,
      summary: JSON.stringify(metrics.tweet),
    this.db.set("lastmetrics", metrics)


Trigger Configuration

This component may be configured based on the props defined in the component code. Pipedream automatically prompts for input values in the UI and CLI.
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between component invocations.
Twitter Developer ApptwitterlabsappThis component uses the Twitter Developer App app.

Trigger Authentication

Twitter Developer App uses API keys for authentication. When you connect your Twitter Developer App account, Pipedream securely stores the keys so you can easily authenticate to Twitter Developer App APIs in both code and no-code steps.

First, you'll need to sign up for a Twitter developer account and create a new application in the Twitter app dashboard. See the Twitter docs for specific instructions.

Once you've created an app, visit the Keys and tokens section of the app's settings, and add the API key, API secret key, Access token, and Access token secret below.

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.

Action Authentication

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

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