How to send a Tweet made on Twitter to a Facebook group chat?

Hi there, just curious if anyone can help me with an IFTTT applet ?

What I need to do is...
If a specific user on Twitter tweets something, then send that tweet to a FB Group Chat

I can see alot of similar ones, like twitter post and send an FB msg, but not to group chat

I want to send to a group chat

the example is....

I want to retweet the happenings within a race to a fb group chat
Only method I know of  ( when there is no option to share to FB, is to either copy the tweet, or use the option>send personal message to> this uses messenger,  type in a friend's name  select it from the list,  repeat> type in another name select it repeat  till you have what you want, this creates a group. all those recipients will get it.
After that you will have the entire group in the messenger list to select when sending private message to.
You should be able to send to group once created from then on.
If some of the friends you wish to message to are not in your FB friends send them messenger request. Click on their name in their FB page send message. This sends a message request which they will have to accept, their name will now appear in your messenger friends list.
When you want add another name to the group  just add it to the send private message to box including all others.
But that creates a new group. Delete old.
If there is another way I am not aware of it.
I understand that we can create a group FB page but I haven't tried that.

If you do not see the specific IFTTT applet you want to use in IFTTT, then you will need to create a custom applet.

In order to do this, go to into your IFTTT account and activate the channels you will need to create this applet. For your example, you will need Twitter and Facebook.

To do this, go to IFTTT and login. Under your profile dropdown in the upper right click "New Applet". Click the blue "this" text and choose Twitter. Connect the platform if it is not connected to your IFTTT account. Then select your trigger. For you, it will be a tweet with the particular keywords or hashtags you want to have sent to the FB group. Now click the blue "that" and connect Facebook. Next you will choose an action that you want Facebook to perform. For you, it would be something like post tweet link or embed tweet into post for Facebook group. Once this field is complete, press finish and your custom IFTTT applet is all set up.

You may not be able to set up an action of sending to Facebook Group since these have different privacy settings. If this is the case, I would try to send these particular tweets through a Facebook Message to the same members of the Facebook Group.

Let me know if this helps!

For more details on this process and a video tutorial on creating custom applets, see this help doc by IFTTT.

Hi Allie and thank you for that

Yes, there is no applet for what I want and I have no idea how to create this either, It seems it might not be able to be done. I am now looking into bots to see if they would be better...

Merete. I want this to be automatic, definitely cannot sit there and do a few hundred tweets manually during an event.
Agree Graeme, I wanted to delete my comment as I was off point but it wont allow deletion after new comments added.

Graeme, I just checked the Facebook Messanger options and they don't seem to do anything that would be helpful.

The Twitter triggers look promising for the "this" part of your applet. Maybe the Facebook or Facebook Pages triggers will be more helpful for your "that" piece of the applet. You can always suggest a trigger to IFTTT for their future development.

Hi Allie, yeah already suggested it to IFTTT, no response yet. I have spent hours scrolling through hundreds of recipes, however none will do the job

Not an Issue Merete

Okay, hopefully you hear something from them.
