The development of Discord bots has made many things possible. The introduction of a Twitter bot made it possible for Discord lovers to engage in healthy debates without having to leave Discord.
With the Twitter bot, users can simulate the Twitter environment inside Discord enabling users to debate and say what is in their minds as if they are on Twitter.
The Twitter bot is rated above four stars, but the issue new users are having is how to use it.
Using a Twitter bot on Discord is easy, like most bots. You must invite the Twitter bot to your server by clicking on the invite button and completing assigning permissions to the bot. Once the bot is in your server and has appropriate permissions, you can use commands to assign a channel and create tweets via the
/twitter tweet <message> attachment command.
This guide explains a Twitter bot and how to start using it. Let’s start!
What is Twitter Bot?
Twitter Bot is one of the Discord bots used to simulate a Twitter environment.
The bot is not for integrating Twitter with Discord, nor can you use it to send automatic tweets on the Discord platform. Twitter bot operate like many bots, and once you have added it to your channel, you can engage with other users like you are on Twitter.
The bot is suitable for Discord users who wish to engage with others on the platform and share their thoughts. Users will think they are on Twitter, but in real essence, the bot gives the same platform as Twitter, but no integration is done. That means you can’t share famous tweets posted by your Twitter followers.
Moreover, the advantage of using a Twitter bot is that you don’t have to leave Discord and join Twitter to engage in conversations because the bot simulates the Twitter environment on Discord.
Thus, the bot is best for users that want to have the Twitter feeling without opening Twitter.
