Automatic Discourse Posts from Twitter: Any Plugins Available?


Are there any plugins to create automatic Discourse posts from Twitter account updates?

I fixed this up to work with YouTube again and it did have Twitter support, but you may need to work on it to make Twitter work again:

(I didn’t PR my fork to the main repo precisely because I only fixed YouTube and have not tested Twitter)

Be aware it uses polling and this might get a little expensive now Twitter has upped their charges … you would be better to convert it to pub-sub.


Hi Robert was wondering if you had a chance to test twitter compatibility since your Youtube fix?

The fork is completely unsupported I’m afraid, I moved on (but it’s in a better state than the original - simply because I did spend a lot of time improving it at the time), but feel free to take a copy and continue improving it. Twitter functionality was not touched, so probably very out of date (but the framework is good, so worth fixing).

Thank you but imagine this would be over my head to do at this point.

There was a post requesting to have this plugin taken over for maintaining.

Do you know off hand any other ways to accomplish this?
