Important Update! This script now requires you to register your own application on Twitter.com for the API keys, instructions on how to do this can be found in the FAQs (Don’t worry, it only takes a few seconds)
DescriptionTwitter Support grabs incoming tweets to your account and organises them based their status, such as ‘Active’, ‘On Hold’, ‘Spam’ and ‘Closed.’ This app is primary for those who run a Twitter support account for their business and offers a simple method of management, so that it ensures everyone gets a speedy response. When you reply to a customer’s tweet it automatically marks it as been dealt with, so you won’t have to sift through masses of tweets to make sure you’ve replied to them all.
Please note that tweets need to be publicly visible in order to get picked up in the Twitter Support Tickets. This means tweets sent from a protected account may not be picked up from search results.
