Don't Miss Any #CallforSpeakers on Twitter

Get notified about #callforspreakers twitter messages and don’t miss any request for speakers. Get notifications about Twitter messages including some hashtags, then searching on Twitter for them.
The twitter connector in Microsoft Flow can help us with this. In this example, the following process will be automated.

Searching in new tweets that including the following hashtags:
#CallForSpeakers, #MicrosoftFlow, #PowerApps
This trigger the Flow that will send a notification towards the mobile Microsoft Flow App and a second action that will create a to-do task in Microsoft To-Do with reminder and due date.

Below an overview of a view limits and restrictions, when using the Twitter connector:

  • Maximum number of connections per user: 2
  • Frequency of trigger polls: 60 seconds
  • Maximum size of image upload: 5 MB
  • Maximum size of video upload: 15 MB
  • Maximum number of search results: 100

The trigger will check for new tweets with hashtags and words in the tweet text message. This will trigger the flow. A variable is created to define when the tweet has been detected, this variable will be used to define the reminder and due date in the To - do a task in Microsoft To Do.
