Question

How do I dynamically get a new Twitch stream's title for a Twitter post?

I’m trying to set up a very simple “When I start a Twitch stream, post information about it to Twitter.” However, the test requires me to use an older live stream’s information to select data posted in the Tweet. As such, when I go live, it will show the test stream’s title and data, not the new live stream’s title and data. How do I specify to use the latest data instead of the test data?

Hi @DaveKap!

When you test a Twitch trigger, it will find a previous livestream so you can build your Zap. When the Zap is turned on, it will be triggered when you start a new stream and will use of the details of that new stream in the Zap actions (in this case to post to Twitter). 

 

I hope that’s clear, let us know if you have any questions!
