Tweeting incoming Direct Messages allows you to:
- Create closed groups and private discussions on Twitter
- Manage one Twitter account by several people without sharing a password
Steps to Tweet incoming Direct Messages are as follows:
- Decide whether you want to tweet all incoming Direct Messages, or only some of them.
- Click the "Add item" button. Then leave the provided field blank and click "Save" if you want to Tweet every incoming Direct Message.
- Create a configuration to Tweet Direct Messages with a specific #hashtag/@mention/keyword/phrases only.
Example: Let's Tweet incoming Direct Messages sent to @RoundTeam_demo that contains the hashtag #update and was sent from @alice* or @nina*.
- Click the "Add item" button on the "Direct Messages" section of your RoundTeam dashboard:
- Enter #update to the appeared text box:
- Apply "Only these authors" filter with value "@alice, @nina". Then make sure and click "Save".
- Here is how the configuration looks:Now, each time @alice or @nina sends a Direct Message to @RoundTeam_demo with the hashtag #update, it appears as a new Tweet posted by @RoundTeam_demo.
Tweet author names can be hidden by using "Hide author names" filter.
Note: You can always choose to tweet all incoming Direct Messages and leave the keyword field blank. Apply additional filters if needed and click the "Save" button.
