To receive tweets from a X/Twitter account or list, you must use the "X/Twitter" bridge on http://bridge2.thefeedreaderbot.com
Put an account name or
a list ID (for example, to subscribe the bot to this list: https://twitter.com/i/lists/1461248048525414405
you must enter 1461248048525414405 in the "ListID" field) from which to receive tweets. A list ID is the better solution, because the more accounts you add to the bot, the more requests will be done by the bot, and the greater the risk of the account being banned
The bridge also needs a real account to get tweets:
- first, create a Twitter account on https://twitter.com
with a valid email address
- validate your account with the email sent by twitter
- login to twitter with this account (maybe follow some accounts, like some tweets, to show you're a human 😅)
- then fill the Twitter bridge with the username/password of this account (so do not
use your real account, I'll store your username/password in my database, for the bot to be able to login; besides there are risks of the account being banned)
- and do not
enable two factor authentication
: if you create feeds for individual accounts, it is recommended to limit the number of feeds per username/password to 10 (with the Elite bot), and 30 (with the premium bot), to avoid rate limits.
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
