Twitter


The twitter platform uses Twitter to delivery notifications from Home Assistant.

Go to Twitter Apps and create an application. Visit “Keys and Access Tokens” of the application to get the details (“Consumer Key”, “Consumer Secret”, “Access Token” and “Access Token Secret” which needs to be generated).

To add Twitter to your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
notify:
  - name: NOTIFIER_NAME
    platform: twitter
    consumer_key: ABCDEFGHJKLMNOPQRSTUVXYZ
    consumer_secret: ABCDEFGHJKLMNOPQRSTUVXYZ
    access_token: ABCDEFGHJKLMNOPQRSTUVXYZ
    access_token_secret: ABCDEFGHJKLMNOPQRSTUVXYZ

Configuration variables:

  • name (Optional): Setting the optional parameter name allows multiple notifiers to be created. The default value is notify. The notifier will bind to the service notify.NOTIFIER_NAME.
  • consumer_key (Required): Your “Consumer Key” (API Key) for the application.
  • consumer_secret (Required): Your “Consumer Secret” (API Secret) for the application.
  • access_token (Required): Your “Access Token” for the application.
  • access_token_secret (Required): Your “Access Token Secret” for the application.
