Hubot Twitter Adapter


This is the Twitter adapter for hubot that allows you to send an tweet to your Hubot and he will send an tweet back with the response.


  • Add hubot-twitter as a dependency in your hubot's package.json
  • Install dependencies with npm install
  • Run hubot with bin/hubot -a twitter -n the_name_of_the_twitter_bot_account

Note if running on Heroku

You will need to change the process type from app to web in the Procfile.


You will need to set some environment variables to use this adapter.


% heroku config:add HUBOT_TWITTER_KEY="key"
% heroku config:add HUBOT_TWITTER_SECRET="secret"
% heroku config:add HUBOT_TWITTER_TOKEN="token"
% heroku config:add HUBOT_TWITTER_TOKEN_SECRET="secret"

Non-Heroku environment variables

% export HUBOT_TWITTER_KEY="key"
% export HUBOT_TWITTER_SECRET="secret"
% export HUBOT_TWITTER_TOKEN="token"

Then you will need to set the HTTP endpoint on Twitter to point to your server and make sure the request type is set to GET.
