Twitter to Gmail or text zap

I’m trying to create a zap to get an email or text message whenever certain accounts post a tweet. It doesn’t seem to be working. Anyone know why?

Hi there @asheryurowitz ,


Could you be a bit more specific? What exactly doesn't work? You getting error messages, or nothing at all? What kind of trigger / actions are you using?



In creating a new zap, I choose an app (Twitter), the try to type in the trigger event, but it doesn’t let me type in that box.

It looks like you are having issues selecting the Twitter Trigger Event, correct?

It could be a browser issue or something, Zapier is a bit buggy sometimes. Try the following: 

  • Logout of Zapier
  • Remove any cache, cookies etc.
  • Login
  • Re-open your Zap

Let me know if that works

I’m getting this error code: “Network error: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0”

Is it possibly because of an internet filter?

Could you make a screenshot of your action and events? What kind of error are you getting?

In your Zap workflow (the attachment you placed), could you click on the “Choose Trigger Event” menu? It should dropdown with some options to choose from.

Nope. It’s not clickable.

Hi @asheryurowitz 

Hopefully this was a temporary issue - did you get it working?

Hopping in here to close the loop on this issue! This looks to have been a temporary bug that has since been resolved. Should this happen again, the best thing to do would be to go directly to this URL to create a new Zap:
