Is there a way to follow a user from the Twitter API using Make?

It is a simple task to follow the user, but none of the versions of the API and authorizations allow it to be done.

*I use the Basic subscription.

*There are several options for doing this in the documentation.

  1. Post https://api.twitter.com/2/users/id/following
  2. Post https://api.twitter.com/1.1/friendships/create.json

*Perhaps there is an expert who can give me instructions or advice?

Welcome to the Make community!

Make doesn’t have a module for this particular endpoint (Follow user).

If the external service has a Developer API Reference/Documentation then you should be able to integrate the endpoints in Make using the app’s universal module (Make an API call) or generic HTTP “Make a request” module.

You can also suggest for it to be made in the Idea exchange. Don’t forget to search for it first, just in case someone already suggested it, so that you don’t end up creating a duplicate.

If you need assistance in setting up the app’s universal module, or the generic HTTP module, please provide additional information about what you have tried with regards to the external service’s Developer API Reference – how you are setting the connection up, a link to the endpoint are you trying to connect to, and what errors you are encountering.

I think it’s impossible without the highest subscription plan. Pro or Enterprise.

How is it possible that with a subscription that does not provide the ability to use follow/unfollow, it is possible to make these requests through make?
