IFTTT used to have great Twitter triggers that they had to shut down in 2012 because Twitter treats third-party developers like crap. Anyway, IFTTT now has much better Twitter triggers. “…today’s rollout brings additional recipes which let you query deeper into Twitter’s stream, instead of only focusing on your own actions. These new triggers are far more useful, too. They can serve as a valuable research tool, allowing to you to do things like track a hashtag or keyword and turn that into a spreadsheet of tweets, or input that info into Slack. You can also configure Twitter (via IFTTT) to alert you to things going on nearby, or set up a digest of tweets, IFTTT suggests.”
