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 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.
LabelPropTypeDescription
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between component invocations.
TwittertwitterappThis component uses the Twitter app.
Count (advanced)countinteger

The maximum number of tweets to return per API request (up to 100)

Max API Requests per Execution (advanced)maxRequestsinteger

The maximum number of API requests to make per execution (e.g., multiple requests are required to retrieve paginated results). Note: Twitter rate limits API requests per 15 minute interval.

timer$.interface.timer
Keywordsqstring

Filter tweets based on keywords star wars, user mentions @starwars, or hashtags #starwars. You can also use Twitter's standard search operators.

Result Typeresult_typestringSelect a value from the drop down menu:{ "label": "Recent", "value": "recent" }{ "label": "Popular", "value": "popular" }{ "label": "Mixed", "value": "mixed" }

Languageslangstring[]Select a value from the drop down menu.
Localelocalestring

Specify the language of the query you are sending (only ja is currently effective). This is intended for language-specific consumers and the default should work in the majority of cases.

Geocodegeocodestring

Returns tweets by users located within a given radius of the given latitude/longitude. The location is preferentially taking from the Geotagging API, but will fall back to their Twitter profile. The parameter value is specified by latitude,longitude,radius, where radius units must be specified as either mi (miles) or km (kilometers). Note that you cannot use the near operator via the API to geocode arbitrary locations; however you can use this geocode parameter to search near geocodes directly.

Enrich TweetsenrichTweetsboolean

Enrich each Tweet with epoch (milliseconds) and ISO 8601 representations of Twitter's created_at timestamp, the Tweet URL, and the profile URL for the author.

Trigger 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. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Twitter API.

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