Connecting your Twitter account

You can integrate a Twitter account with Lexer, allowing Lexer to consume all Tweets and Direct Messages made by, and sent from your account. You can see a full breakdown of this data here.

In this article we’ll show you how to integrate your account for the first time, and to re-integrate your account, should it become disconnected.

Integrating your Twitter account

When integrating your Twitter account, you will be prompted to login using the account’s handle and password - make sure you have these handy before you get started.

Navigate to Lexer Integrate, and you’ll see a range of supported integrations. We’re going to select Twitter.

  1. Click the Twitter integration button
  1. Enter Twitter details of the account you wish to integrate, and login
  1. Using the dropdown select all User Groups who should have access to this accounts
  2. Click add integration

Your account will now be fully integrated, and we will start consuming all content produced by, and sent to the handle.

You can continue to monitor the status of your integration from this page, and we’ll alert you via email, should the integration become disconnected at any stage.

Integrating your Twitter Ads account

Like your Twitter account, your Twitter Ads account requires you to enter the necessary Twitter handle and password. Ensure the Twitter account you’re using has a Twitter Ads account linked to it first. Follow this guide if you’re unsure.

  1. Click the Twitter Ads integration
  2. Click integrate Twitter Ads
  3. Enter the appropriate Twitter details, and login
  4. Choose the Groups permitted to access these accounts
  5. Click add integration

Once your account has been integrated, we can build an activation with Lexer Activate, permitting you to send tailored audiences to Twitter. Please contact Lexer Support to build this activation for you.

Re-integrating your accounts

Sometimes we can lose connection to your accounts due to a change of password, or another easy to fix problem. We’ll alert admins by email as soon as this happens, and ask them to follow a few quick prompts to reconnect. All users can check the status of their integrations at any time via a coloured status symbol in Settings > Integrations (Green = connected, Red = re-integrate now).

Re-integrating your account is a speedy process.

  1. From the Twitter / Twitter Ads column, select your account for reconnection and click reconnect.
