Quick Start Guide for Twitter

Follow these steps to set up a Twitter integration in no time!

1. Create a Twitter integration

Service list

  1. Select Twitter from the services list on the left-hand side of your Pingcord dashboard
  2. Click on New Integration

2. Select the Discord channel

Select the Ping Channel, this is the channel Pingcord will post your notifications in.

The permissions checker will then check if Pingcord can actually post in your channel. If there is a problem, you may see something like this:

Insufficient permissions imageClick on the image to zoom in.

In this case, you will need to give Pingcord the proper roles and permissions in your server to allow Pingcord to post in the desired channel.

However, if you see something like this:

Sufficient permissions imageClick on the image to zoom in.

That means everything is configured properly!

3. Amend the message if desired

You can amend the message that Pingcord sends to anything you want!

Message template box

The message box works in the same way as Discord's message box. This means you can use @everyone, @here, or even tag specific roles. You can simply start typing @... and a list of roles will appear just like Discord, you can use the arrow keys and enter, or click on the role to insert the role tag.

You also have a few variables at your disposal, these are listed above the message box and are different for each service. They are replaced with the relevant account and Tweet details automatically, so you can use 1 format for all the channels in the integration.


Retweets and Quote tweets are included by default. Filtering these events out requires Premium.

As seen in the image, for Twitter Tweets you have:

  • {account} which expands into the Twitter account's @handle
  • {name} which expands into the Twitter account's name
  • {link} which expands into the URL for the new Tweet
  • {action} which expands into the action performed, i.e. Tweeted or Retweeted, etc.

Play around with it and see your changes in real-time with the Message Preview window underneath.

4. Add Twitter accounts to track

Enter the Twitter account username (without the @handle) and then press Add Account.

Add account boxClick on the image to zoom in.

5. Save changes

Don't forget to save your new integration.

After saving, you may see a message next to each Twitter account indicating the status of the tracker.

It may temporarily say Creating tracker but should quickly change to Tracking healthy.

How can I disable @everyone and/or ping another role?

As mentioned, the message box works just like Discord.

To remove the @everyone ping from the message simply highlight and delete it out.

To add a role ping, simply type @ followed by a few characters of the role name and then select it from the autocomplete list.
