How to look for keyword in Twitter list and create Airtable record?

Is the following possible?

I have added select Twitter handles to a custom Twitter list.

When any of the users in the list send a tweet with a certain keyword(s), I’d like to create an Airtable record.

Note, I am familiar with how to create the Airtable record based on a trigger. 

I was seeing that Zapier includes certain search operators to trigger based off of certain keywords but I couldn’t quite figure it out in my tests.

Alternatively, is there another way I should be thinking about this overall? I was thinking the list route was the way to go, but perhaps there's another way you have in mind in Zapier to search new Tweets for select handles for specific keywords.

Hi @itsnathanham 

Good question.

Maybe using a Filter step in your Zap is what you are seeking?

Hey @itsnathanham! To close the loop here, Troy is correct in that a Filter step should do the trick! You would want to set up that step to only continue if: Tweet > Contains > (whichever keywords you specify). That will ensure only select Tweets make it into your Airtable base. 🙂
