Hello there!

Thanks everyone for the great face-to-face conversations so far. :slight_smile: Based on the ideas and questions I’ve had from the teams, I’m adding some links below in case they can be helpful to more participants!

  • Tracking the conversation in real-time — Use the [node:10389] endpoint with the track parameter to receive in real-time all Tweets based on a football match or the hashtag of your app.
  • Digging in the past Tweets — Navigate inside the previous Tweets using the [node:10287] endpoint and paginate through the results matching your query.
  • Posting photos on Twitter — Use the [node:9708] endpoint to post pictures on Twitter. Don’t forget to include a hashtag as well if you want to track them easily in real-time!
  • Building an Android app with Crashlytics and Twitter4J — Become a better developer by embedding Crashlytics inside your app and have great crash reporting insights: Use Twitter4J to simplify the integration of Twitter data in your Android app:
  • Embedding Tweets and Timelines — [node:10248] are very convenient to build your prototypes over the weekend! In particular, Custom Timelines are a great way to embed a selection of Tweets on a Web page:
  • Sharing easily on Twitter — If you want to add a very simple way to share an information to Twitter, you should check [node:183].

Good luck, everyone! :slight_smile:
