Look up a Twitter user's followers and post the count to a PostgreSQL table

The number of Twitter followers of a given user tracked over time can be used as a proxy for growth. Use this integration to keep tabs on key accounts automatically. After you set it up, Zapier will search for a Twitter user's followers via a webhook and post the count to a PostgreSQL table. That way, you'll have the info you need for any further analysis.

How this Webhooks by Zapier-Twitter-PostgreSQL integration works

  1. A Zapier webhook looks up the follower count of a given Twitter handle
