Twitter Integration

Supportbench will setup your Bench to handle all of your Twitter handles and include incoming mentions and direct messages directly in your workflows. Using Twitter in your Bench you will be able to:

  • Handle multiple twitter handles.
  • Assgin handles to companies and contacts.
  • Watch your handles for incoming tweets and be alerted on anything new and incoming.
  • Manually create cases by looking at your twitter feed or have your Bench auto-create direct messages and mentions directly into cases.
  • Create workflows based on your tweets.

How to setup your Twitter handle for Supportbench

  5. Create your access token by going to the Keys and Access tokens tab and clicking on "Create my access token".
  6. Set your access to "Read, Write and Access direct messages".
