How to Set Up the Twitter Integration

The Twitter integration allows you to import data from your Twitter accounts into Marfeel. This includes real-time engagement metrics and numbers of posts, replies, retweets, likes and followers. All data is available in the Explore module and Compass playbook.

Set Up the Twitter Integration

  1. Go to the Organization icon in sidebar, and select Integrations.

  2. Click on Connect in the Twitter integration box. You will see the following prompt:

  3. Choose a name for your integration, and insert a valid Twitter app token. Confirm to create the integration.

  4. Now click on ‘Add profile’ and insert as many Twitter profiles as you want to sync.

Obtaining the Twitter Token

Due to security reasons, Marfeel needs a Bearer Token associated with a Twitter development app so that it can import the data on your behalf. Here is the step-by-step guide on how to get it:

  1. Log in with your Twitter account, access https://developer.twitter.com/, and click on Developer Portal at the upper right corner (close to your profile picture).

    • If it’s the first time you’re accessing this developer portal, you will need to create a developer profile. Select your country, “Building B2B Products” as the use case, and respond “No” to the question of whether you will make Twitter content or derived information available to a government entity.
    • If you don’t have a verified phone number associated with your Twitter account, you will need to register one. You can do so at Twitter>More>Your Account>Account information>Phone.
  2. If it’s the first time you’re accessing the Developer Portal, you will be prompted to select a name for your app. Once created, information relative to your recently created app will be visible. Copy Bearer Token and paste it into Marfeel’s integration set up screen.

  3. If it’s not the first time you’re accessing the Portal, you will need to go to Projects & Apps > select your app > Keys and Tokens > Regenerate. This will regenerate the Bearer Token of your previously existing app (make sure there’s no one currently using it!) and show you the new Token so you can copy it and paste it into Marfeel’s integration set up screen.
