  6. Configure an IFTTT applet to trigger this script based on tweets. For example, here is how I have configured mine:


    • Trigger: "Twitter" --> "New tweet from search"
    • Search For: "from:nightshiftbeer, OR from:trilliumbrewing, OR from:treehousebrewco exclude:replies exclude:retweets"


    • Action: "Webhooks" --> "Make a web request"
    • URL: "http://path/to/your/webserver/beer_alerts.py"
    • Method: "POST"
    • Content Type: "application/json"
    • Body:

      { tweet_url": , "user": , "webhook_urls": [ "https://hooks.slack.com/services/your/slack/webhook_one", "https://hooks.slack.com/services/your/slack/webhook_two" ] }
