Twitter integration with Slack not working or broken gets acknowledged, but no ETA for fix

Slack Twitter integration is a feature that allows users to connect their Slack workspace with their Twitter account.

With this integration, users can receive real-time notifications about their Twitter activity, such as mentions, retweets, likes, and direct messages, directly in their Slack channels.

Well, now it is coming to light that there might be an issue with this feature.

Twitter integration with Slack not working

Recently, some Slack users are reporting an issue where Twitter integration seems to be broken or not working (1,2,3,4,5).

Slack Twitter integration no working

Users noticed on March 14th, 2023 that the Twitter plugin is no longer publishing tweets to their Slack channel and that they are no longer receiving any messages or notifications for their Twitter handles.

Some even disconnected and reconnected Twitter integration and also tried disabling and re-enabling the feature altogether, both to no avail.

For businesses and individuals who relied heavily on Twitter as part of their marketing or communication strategy, this issue has had a significant impact on their ability to stay up-to-date with social media trends and conversations.

Seems like the @slackhq Twitter integration s no longer working. Thanks Elon.

@SlackHQ our twitter integration has stopped working after march 14. is this a wider issue? what can i do to resolve it?

The explanation for this situation can be attributed to the recent implementation of Twitter’s new API policy, which includes the discontinuation of free access to their APIs.

Hey there! As Twitter has shut down access to free APIs, the Slack-Twitter integration has stopped working and this will impact unfurls. We are monitoring this change and are considering alternative solutions, however at this point we cannot provide Twitter unfurls.

Issue acknowledged

Slack support has acknowledged the issue and said that are aware of it. However, there is no timeline for when a fix will be released.
