For Premium & Elite subscribers
Use your own Twitter API key
If you are a Twitter developer subscriber, and have a Basic plan subscription, then you can use your API key to get fast Twitter feeds.
First, open the Twitter developer portal website
, and access your project's "Keys and tokens" page:
The bot needs the "Bearer token". Generate one if you don't already have one, and copy the token.
Then, go the Bridge2 website
, and open the Twitter bridge:
Enter the username of the account you want to receive tweets from, paste the Bearer token you copied before, and select if you want to receive replies and retweets. Then click on "Display", and in the next screen click on "copy command". Paste this command into the bot's chat window to subscribe to this feed.
For Elite subscribers: very fast refresh
If you want to receive tweets in a few minutes or seconds, specific twitter feeds can be configured. See the monthly prices, per feed, here: prices
