To use this functionality you first have to create the list to which it will publish the tweets. I’ve created a custom list and I added the columns for the data I want returned:

Click on your App Launcher and Navigate to Flow:

flow4

Go to My Flows and click on Create from Template:

I searched for Twitter and found the template I wanted to use – Save tweets that include a specific hashtag to a SharePoint list:

To use the template you have to setup the connection to your SharePoint site and Twitter account. Enter the credentials and Continue:

flow1

You can now select the site / list to which the data will publish.  Once the list is selected you can link your SharePoint columns to the available Twitter columns (click on Add Dynamic Content):

Update the Flow and click Done when saved. The Flow should now add a list item every time that hashtag is used. Voila!!!

Over the next couple of weeks I’ll be working with Flow and I’ll try my best to share examples of templates and services used.

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the next 365 days. Crazy, I know. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.
Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.
