Reshuffle Twitter Connector

This package contains a Reshuffle connector for connecting to Twitter as a Twitter Developer App.

The following example follows Taylor Swift on Twitter. When running it, every Swift tweet is printed to the console:

const { Reshuffle } = require('reshuffle')
const { TwitterConnector } = require('reshuffle-twitter-connector')

const app = new Reshuffle()
const twitter = new TwitterConnector(app, {
  customerKey: process.env.TWITTER_CUSTOMER_KEY,
  customerSecret: process.env.TWITTER_CUSTOMER_SECRET,
})

twitter.on({ follow: 'taylorswift13' }, async (event, app) => {
  for (const tweet of event.tweets) {
    console.log(tweet.text)
  }
})

app.start()
