Destination Setup

Please do the following steps to add Twitter as a destination in DinMo:
  1. 1.
    Go to the Destinations section in the navigation bar.
  2. 2.
    Click "Add a new destination".
  3. 3.
    Select "X".
  4. 4.
    Click "Connect" to activate the connection. You will be redirected to Twitter, where you will be asked to grant the necessary permissions to DinMo.
  5. 5.
    Click continue once the connection is done.
  6. 6.
    Give a name to your destination.
  7. 7.
    Click Connect.

Syncing Audiences

DinMo can be used to sync audiences to Twitter Ads.
After having connected your destination, to sync data to Twitter, you are required to create an Activation Target corresponding to this service. Once done, you can then send segments to this activation target.

Activation Target Setup

  1. 1.
    Go to the destination tab and select your Twitter destination
  2. 2.
    On the sidebar, click on "Create a new activation target"
  3. 3.
    Give a name to your activation target, for instance, "Twitter Ads - audiences".
  4. 4.
    Select the target ad account in which your audiences will be exported. If your ad account does not appear, it means that the user who set up the Twitter destination does not have the right permissions.
  5. 5.
    Hit Continue.
  6. 6.
    Next, define the default activation setup. This setup will be used by default to activate segments, but you will be able to change it when creating advanced activations. Please define the default related entity - this will tell DinMo which type of data should be sent to the activation target.
  1. 7.
    Then, map the fields of this entity to the fields required by the destination service. Twitter expects to receive at least one of these identifiers to recognize the users you send:
Device ID
Twitter ID
Phone Number
  1. 8.
    Under the Scheduling options, choose the time interval for syncing your segments to Twitter Ads. A daily sync is sufficient for most use cases.
  2. 9.
    Click "Continue," and then click "Create" to finish.

Activation setup

Now that you have properly configured your activation target, you are ready to sync data to this destination service. To do so:
  1. 1.
    Go to the Segments tab.
  2. 2.
    Click on the segment you wish to activate.
  3. 3.
    On the sidebar, click on "Activate", in the upper right.
  4. 4.
    Tick the Twitter activation target you just created. You can tick other activation targets, if you wish to create multiple activations at once.
  5. 5.
    If you want to not to use the default activation settings that has been defined in the activation target, click on Advanced, and make the necessary changes.
  6. 6.
    Hit Activate on the upper right, then, click on "Sync my activation", to start sending data right away.
