send-tweet-action status

Send a tweet from a GitHub Actions workflow

Use this action to send a tweet from a GitHub actions workflow.

Twitter Application Setup

First, you'll need to create a Twitter application if you haven't already. This will allow you to programmatically authenticate to the Twitter API and send a tweet.

If you haven't already, visit developer.twitter.com/apps and create a Twitter application. Then create keys and tokens to use for authentication.

Secret Configuration

Configure the authentication keys and tokens for your Twitter app as secrets in your repository. I recommend using the TWITTER_CONSUMER_API_KEY, TWITTER_CONSUMER_API_SECRET, TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN, and TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET secrets.

Workflow Usage

Configure your workflow to use ethomson/send-tweet-action@v1, and provide the tweet you want to send as the status input.

Provide the authentication keys and tokens for your Twitter app as the consumer-key, consumer-secret, access-token, and access-token-secret inputs.

For example:

name: Send a Tweet
on: [push]
jobs:
  tweet:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      - uses: ethomson/send-tweet-action@v1
        with:
          status: "Hi, this is a test!"
          consumer-key: ${{ secrets.TWITTER_CONSUMER_API_KEY }}
          consumer-secret: ${{ secrets.TWITTER_CONSUMER_API_SECRET }}
          access-token: ${{ secrets.TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN }}
          access-token-secret: ${{ secrets.TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET }}

Now whenever you push something to your repository, GitHub Actions will tweet on your behalf.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
