A TWitter rAFFLE script.
Twaffle allows you to extract random tweets for a set of keywords. It's ideal to do raffles over tweeter: get some people to tweet some specific keywords and then extract an arbitrary number of random winners!
npm install --global twaffle
Or you can use it with
npx (see usage), so in such case you don't have to install it at all.
Finally, you can also use the compiled binaries distributed for the major operative systems.
To use Twaffle you would need to access to the Twitter developer platform and have obtained keys for an app.
Once you got your keys, make sure that they are exported as environment variables in the local shell:
export TWITTER_CONSUMER_KEY="..." export TWITTER_CONSUMER_SECRET="..." export TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN_KEY="..." export TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET="..."
Note: Twitter keys can also be passed as arguments, see
twaffle --help for more details.
At this point you can run twaffle as in the following example:
twaffle --keywords '#oredev again' --winners=3
this will extract
3 random tweets that have the keywords
If you didn't install twaffle and you have a recent version of NPM you can simply run twaffle through
npx twaffle --keywords '#oredev again' --winners=3
