Not Receiving Account Activity Events


#1

I am using Heroku to host the account-activity-dashboard app I have built according to the Twitter Development documentation and the Github repository. After launching the app through Heroku:

I am not receiving streaming account activity events. Webhook and Callback URLs are working properly. I can manually favorite an event and see the activity in the Heroku logs, but I am not receiving any other tweet objects for the webhook connection.

I am looking to receive a real-time streaming feed of tweets.

Have you created some account subscriptions?

If you post a Tweet on a subscribed account, does that hit the webhook and show up in the logs?


#3

I have set up an account subscription for my personal twitter account. I am looking to receive all updates to my home timeline through the account activity dashboard, but have only been able to see favorite events.


#4

Home timeline events are not included in the Account Activity API.

Ok thank you. If I can’t use the Account Activity API for home timeline events, can I use it in a different way to receive new tweets from people I follow? If this is not possible with the Account Activity API can you please refer me to the proper API to receive real time tweets from people I follow with my twitter account.
Thanks

There’s no realtime way to do that, unless they are @mentions or quotes or your Tweets (that would flow via the Account Activity API). You’d need to poll the statuses/home_timeline endpoint to do this.

You can refer to a list of the activity message types that are available via webhooks here.
