Use names and or company names to find Twitter profiles 🔍
How are your competitors doing on social media platforms? Looking for Twitter pages of a list of contacts?
Starting from a spreadsheet filled with a list of names (and/or company names), Phantombuster will use search engines to automatically match names with their Twitter profile URLs.
What will you need? ⚙️
"spreadsheetUrl": link of your spreadsheet
"columnName": title of the storing names column in your document
Which steps to follow?
1. Create an account on Phantombuster.com 💻

3. Click on Configure me!

4. Setting the Spreadsheet
Prepare a spreadsheet with first name/last name in a single cell
In order to match your search query with an Twitter profile our API will use different search engines such as Google, Duckduckgo, Bing, Ecosia...
If the name you are searching for is pretty common we highly recommend you to add a company name in your search query for higher chances of positive results.
You can also only search company names
5. Column Name
With one query per cell, make sure that first name/last name & company are in the same cell.
Use columnName to show our API what name you wrote on top of that column.
In the example above our columnName is: Name_of_your_column
Click on Launch & Enjoy!
It’s done! All that is left to do is to click on "launch" to try your script!
