How to use

To use this plugin, you'll need:

  • A global DSS API key with admin rights
  • A Twitter connection already set up in DSS

The "Get followers" and "Get following" recipes don't take any input. Just create the recipe from the Flow "New recipe" menu and create a dataset to store the results.

The "Search users by keywords" recipe takes as input a dataset which must contain the keywords to search for. It outputs a dataset with search results.

The "Follow" and "Unfollow" recipes take as input a dataset which must contain the screen names to follow (resp. unfollow). It outputs a "marker" dataset that only contains information about the execution.
