Twitter Spaces
Distributing POAPs on Twitter

Overview

This feature is still in beta. Please use with caution.
DEGEN is capable of distributing POAPs to participants on the Twitter platform. The community manager sets up the DEGEN Twitter Spaces event on Discord. Then they communicate the 'secret phrase' to their attendees. If the secret phrase is correct, then DEGEN sends the POAP link as a reply to the participant. The attendees direct message the phrase to the @DEGEN_POAP bot on Twitter and the bot sends back POAP link.
The secret phrase can be any alphanumeric word that is easy to remember and communicate. It is recommended to use a word that is short so that participants can use it to redeem their respective POAPs.
The current iteration of DEGEN has some limitations on how POAPs are distributed on Twitter. Consider filling out this prep form before the date of your Twitter Spaces event.
Please be sure to complete the prep form before starting a twitter event:
  1. 1.
