Creating an Integration

To create an integration, head over to the Library tab (your home page) and click the plus button at the bottom right. Select Integration from the submenu.

From the next page, you can find Twitter with one of the following ways:

  1. Scroll down and select Twitter from the list of integrations;
  2. Use search icon from the top right corner of the window;
  3. Open the All dropdown and select Marketing.

Click the integration.

You’ll see the Integration settings dialog window. You can select the frequency for the automatic updates on the DATA REFRESH tab, or set weeks settings on the ADVANCED tab. 

Enter up to 10 logins separated by comma to the first field, so you can compare the statistics  in the Users Search dataset (you can leave it blank – in this case, it’ll be auto filled with your @screen_name). 

Enter a tweet or a hashtag  to the second field (you can leave it blank – in this case, it’ll be auto filled with your @screen_name). This information will be used in the Tweet Search dataset.

Click OK to continue.

You’ll be directed to a page to sign in. Login to your Twitter account.

After authorization, the integration will be created and it will appear in your account in the list of objects. Now you are able to share the integration with either individuals or the entire Team, rename or remove the integration. To view the options available for the integration, right click it in the list.
