We start by specifying the folder and subfolders in which our excel file is located, and continue by getting the current date and time, so that we can append it to the excel file among with the figures we will retrieve.

Problem:

I want to find common friends between two Twitter Users

Solution:

Discussion:

To start our twitter search and find common friends between two twitter users, we simply have to start by specifying our account.

Τhen using the “Get Twitter User Friends” action twice, one for each user.

We then use the “Find Common List Items” that will give us a list that contains all items that exist on both lists.

That would be the name of each common friend of the two users.

What we shall do with that list is down to us to decide, we can either write the list contents to a text file or even use the output list to follow each User, send a tweet that mentions each user, etc.

Problem:

I want to post on Twitter the text I have on the clipboard

Solution:

Discussion:

In order to post any text you have on your clipboard to Twitter, you simply have to get the text you have copied to the clipboard, and using the “Get Clipboard Text” action. After that, using an “if” condition we check whether the characters count for the text on the clipboard less or equal to 140 (which is the default lenght for all tweets). If that condition is true, then using the “Specify Twitter Account” action, we specify the account we want to use to login, and using the “Post a Tweet” action, we configure the action to post our Clipboard text.

Get all tweets of a user with a date stamp

This functionality will require installation of the free Twitter Addon!

Problem:

Get all tweets of a user with a date stamp

Solution:

Discussion:

To retrieve all Tweets of a user with a date-stamp, we need to make use of the Twitter Addon in conjunction with the Write “Text To File” action. Having specified the folder within we will be saving our text file, and having specified the Twitter Account that will connect to Twitter to retrieve this information, we use the “Get Twitter User Timeline” action that will retrieve all tweets of the user. Having done that, since for each individual tweet we also need the date of creation to be appended prior to the tweet in the text file, we use a “For Each” loop action during which, for each tweet, a line will be appended to the text file that will contain the date of the tweet as well as the tweet’s text.
