The AhoyConnect Twitter integration permits you to interface one or more Twitter records to your work areas.
The integration will naturally make an action for any notice of associated records, and it will save that action to a current members' profile. On the off chance that the tweet is from an individual not currently connected with your work area, AhoyConnect will create a new member.🚀
Initially, AhoyConnect will create members and activities for the 800 most recent mentions. It will not import followers who have never mentioned your account or tracked keywords. This is a limitation of the Twitter API.
Connecting AhoyConnect to Twitter
To connect your Twitter account, please click +Connect integration in the integrations tab and select Twitter.
You will now be prompted to Twitter's authorization screen. The app asks for read-only permissions. Click Authorise App.
After logging in to your Twitter account, you will be redirected to the data mapping page.
You will be redirected to the data mapping page where you can connect data you want to map from Slack (left column) to specific member fields available (right column).
You can see all the possible data fields that we’re able to automatically sync from Twitter in the screenshot 👉🏼
Events: Add events you want to track and assign them importance from 1 to 10 points for each time the user will perform the action
Activity Stages: Define activity stages by creating your own badges for each stage with its own range of points users need to hit to earn the badge in the last 30 days.
You can find more information about the scoring system in our dedicated article here.
Once you add the relevant Twitter account, AhoyConnect will begin importing mentions of the linked accounts. We're able to import up to 800 of the most recent mentions. This usually takes 1-2 minutes.
For members created from this integration, the "joined" date will be the date they followed your account.
💡 AhoyConnect will attach tweets to existing member profiles or will create new members if the person who tweeted doesn't already exist in AhoyConnect.
