Looking for an easy way to integrate Twitter with Microsoft Teams? In this article, we’ll look at some options now that Microsoft has removed the Twitter connector.
Power Automate (Free tier, 1st party)
If you’re looking for a way to integrate Twitter without paying for a third-party tool and you’ve already got a Power Automate license, then this is your best bet. By using Power Automate, you can do things like:
- Send new tweets to a channel in Teams
- Filter tweets to send to a channel in Teams based on the hashtag
- Ping a channel when your Twitter account is @ mentioned
- Post a message from Teams to Twitter
- Perform sentiment analysis and post the results to Teams
Similar to Power Automate, Zapier allows you to setup workflows to post messages on your behalf into channels in your Teams workspace.
In fact, the most popular Zapier Microsoft Teams/Twitter integration is that which posts messages into a channel containing a mention. You can also readily customise the workflows to suit your needs.
MailClark (Paid, 3rd party)
This app is available from App Source, and allows you to quickly connect multiple Twitter accounts to Teams and monitor them. You can be notified almost immediately when someone responds or tweets your accounts.
You can also use MailClark to quickly triage issues & ping the right people from your team to investigate customer enquiries faster. Pricing starts at $5 per active user, per month.
Twitter connector (now deprecated)
This connector used to allow you to connect Twitter and Teams directly, and was provided by Microsoft.
However, it has since been removed as Microsoft decided to no longer continue supporting and maintaining the connector.
