Add to Slack. Click
Add Twitter integration. To authenticate with Twitter, click
Authorise app. Enter the Twitter @username you want to track in Slack.
Select the tweets you want to see. (If nothing is selected, no tweets will be displayed.)

Ideas for using the Twitter app
Now that you’ve connected Twitter to your Slack workspace, you can keep an eye on all kinds of topics from Twitter:
Get updates from services you rely on. When a feature is added or there’s an outage, you can stay up to date in Slack.
Follow similar businesses in a #friendly-competition channel to keep an eye on what your competitors are up to in real time.
Organise! Gather tweets from every company-owned account in one place so everyone knows what’s being said.
Add local transport service update tweets to your office channel, so people know when there’s disruption on the buses or trains when commuting to or from work. Got more than one Twitter account? Head back over to the Twitter app page and click Add configuration again to get those tweets flowing into Slack as well.
