Cloudbits / IFTTT / Twitter / Instagram

Hi folks,

I’m having a tough time figuring out the details of making the cloudbit trigger with different channels on IFTTT. For example, I can’t really get the bit to trigger when any tweet (or instagram photo) comes from a specific location or when a specific hashtag is used.

Anyone else have this problem?

Thanks.

Matt

don’t expect twitter search to trigger immediatelly.
IFTTT will have to pull Twitter.
They do that once every 15 minutes or so. At that point if your search matches anything then it will trigger.

Some channel push to IFTTT so it’s more instantaneous… Twitter or Instagram searches are not one of those.
