How Do I Automatically Post Tweets to My Discord Server?

Discord is a popular communication platform widely used by communities, gamers, and businesses alike. Many people want to stay updated with the latest tweets from their favorite accounts without leaving their Discord servers. In this tutorial, we will explore different methods to automatically post tweets to your Discord server.

Method 1: Using Zapier

Zapier is an online automation tool that allows you to connect different apps and services together. By using Zapier, we can create a workflow that automatically sends tweets from a Twitter account to a specific channel in your Discord server.

Step 1: Create a Zapier Account

  1. Go to the Zapier website ( and sign up for an account if you haven’t already.
  2. Once signed in, click on the “Make a Zap!” button on the top-right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Set Up the Trigger

  1. In the “Choose App & Event” search bar, type “Twitter” and select the Twitter app from the results.
  2. Select the trigger event “New Tweet by You” or “New Tweet by Username” depending on your preference.
  3. Follow the prompts to connect your Twitter account and configure any additional settings for the trigger event.

Step 3: Set Up the Action

  1. In the “Choose App & Event” search bar, type “Discord” and select the Discord app from the results.
  2. Select the action event “Send Channel Message.”
  3. Follow the prompts to connect your Discord account and configure the channel where you want the tweets to be posted.

Step 4: Test and Activate Your Zap

  1. Once you’ve completed setting up the trigger and action, Zapier will ask you to test your Zap.
  2. If everything is configured correctly, Zapier will send a test tweet to your Discord channel.
  3. If the test is successful, activate your Zap to start automatically posting tweets from the specified Twitter account to your Discord server.

Method 2: Using a Custom Bot

If you prefer more control over the process and want to customize how tweets are displayed in your Discord server, you can create a custom bot using a programming language like Python. This method requires some coding knowledge but offers flexibility in terms of design and functionality.

Step 1: Set Up a Twitter Developer Account

  1. Create a Twitter Developer Account by going to the Twitter Developer website ( and following their instructions.
  2. Create a new app and generate API keys and access tokens for authentication.

Step 2: Set Up a Discord Bot Account

  1. Create a new application on the Discord Developer Portal (
  2. Navigate to the “Bot” section of your application’s settings and create a new bot account.
  3. Copy the token for later use in your code.

Step 3: Write Your Custom Bot Code

Using a programming language like Python, you can write code to authenticate with Twitter and Discord APIs and create a bot that listens for new tweets and sends them to your Discord server.

import tweepy
import discord

# Authenticate with Twitter API
auth = tweepy.OAuthHandler("consumer_key", "consumer_secret")
auth.set_access_token("access_token", "access_token_secret")

# Authenticate with Discord API
client = discord.Client()
discord_token = "your_discord_bot_token"

async def on_ready():
    print(f"We have logged in as {client.user}")

async def on_tweet(tweet):
    channel = client.get_channel(your_channel_id)
    await channel.send(f"{} just tweeted: {tweet.text}")

# Connect to the Twitter streaming API
api = tweepy.API(auth)
stream_listener = tweepy.StreamListener()

stream_listener.on_status = on_tweet

stream = tweepy.Stream(auth=api.auth, listener=stream_listener)

Replace the placeholders with your actual API keys, access tokens, and Discord bot token. Customize the on_tweet event handler function to format the tweet message according to your preferences.

Step 4: Run Your Custom Bot

Save the code in a file with a .py extension and run it using a Python interpreter. Make sure you have all the necessary dependencies installed, such as tweepy and Your bot should now be running and posting tweets to your Discord server.

These are two popular methods you can use to automatically post tweets to your Discord server. Choose the one that best suits your needs and enjoy staying updated without leaving your Discord community!
