AUTOMATING TWITTER POSTS WITH LARAVEL AND VUE

AUTOMATING TWITTER POSTS WITH LARAVEL AND VUE

This article  explain how to Autopost a Post on Twitter using Laravel Framework and Vue js.

 

Well for my platform it is anyway, whenever I create a new app or website Twitter is the first social network that I turn to. It’s fast, the analytics are on point, and it’s easy to use, my only issue is that I am busy coding and whatnot to Tweet as much as I would like or need to in order to optimize my reach. This leaves me with two options:

  1. Pay someone to manage my account for me
  2. Learn the Twitter API and write my own automation program to manage it myself

The idea of paying another person to manage my social media just made my stomach and my wallet hurt so the OBVIOUS choice is to use the API. Now let me tell you this  API is DENSE there is a lot you can do with it (click here for the docs) so I will only focus on one aspect in this tutorial, sending posts. The first basic application that I wrote was a simple post scheduler, it allows me to create as many posts as I want, set a date-time to post at, then a Laravel job executes at the desired time, then deletes the entry from the database. This basic application has saved me tremendous time because now I can just schedule all my important tweets weeks or months early!
