How to Use Twitter in Discord

Discord is one of the most popular communication applications today, especially among avid gamers. Apart from allowing you to chat while playing games and talk to people who share similar interests in different servers, Discord also offers a number of customization options that will make your user experience that much more personal and unique.

One of these great features is the ability to connect your Twitter account, allowing you to receive notifications of new Tweets and mentions, or even to automatically post Tweets to your Discord channel. If you want to learn how you can use Twitter on Discord, simply follow the helpful guide below:

Connecting Twitter to Discord

There many different integrations for Discord which will allow you to connect your Twitter account. Although they all work in quite a similar manner, we will be using Zapier for the purposes of this step-by-step guide. So, here’s how you can utilize this helpful tool:

  1. Go to the Zapier website, and sign up or log in if you’ve already made an account here.
  2. Next, locate the Discord channel where you wish to post Tweets or perform other Twitter-related actions.
  3. Press the channel settings, and then choose the Webhooks section. Here, you can make a new Webhook. The Webhook can be named however you wish, but make sure to copy the Webhook URL. Then, press Save.
  4. On the Zapier website, press the Make a Zap tab. When choosing an app, type in Twitter, and then select the trigger you wish to use (for example when you get a new follower or when you Tweet something new). Then, click on Save + Continue.
  5. If you haven’t already, connect your Twitter profile now, and click Save + Continue once again.
  6. Now, click on Fetch & Continue, and press Continue again if it’s successful.
  7. In the Action App section, choose Webhooks, and click on POST.
  8. In the following template, paste the Webhook URL you previously copied. While you have the option to edit the fields in the Data segment, don’t edit the field titles as they might not be accepted.
  9. Then, scroll down until you find the Headers section. Make sure the first field says Content-Type, while the other reads application/json.
  10. Finally, test it out to ensure it’s working properly. It might also be a good idea to turn your Zap on, in order to make sure it’s constantly running.

And that’s it! With just a couple of quick and easy steps, you can now enjoy the benefits of Twitter, even while using Discord.
