De-dupeing Twitter with a conditional?

Hey Power Automate community! I have a flow that pulls the latest Tweet from a Twitter account every five minutes and posts it to a Teams channel, see below. (The flow was created because the When a new Tweet is posted trigger only appears to search Twitter once an hour.) 

 

The challenge: if a new Tweet hasn't been posted in the last five minutes, the message posted to the Teams channel is a duplicate of the previous message posted in the channel.

 

I'm looking to add a conditional (I think) that states if the body of the message to post matches the body of the last message posted, don't post the message.

 

Thoughts on what that conditional might actually looking like? Or other solutions for de-dupeing in this situation?

 

Your help and guidance would be appreciated!

Hi @ianhillmedia :

You could add a condition action to check if the twitter is created in 5 mins.

If yes ,then send the message.

If no ,do nothing.

Some thing like:
