The Twitter alerting extension enables AppDynamics to post custom notifications as tweets on Twitter. Twitter followers can see a brief description of the health rule violation or event and get more detail on AppDynamics by following the URL provided in the tweet.
Now you are ready to use this extension as a custom action. In the AppDynamics UI, go to Alert & Respond -> Actions. Click Create Action. Select Custom Action and click OK. In the drop-down menu you can find the action called 'update-twitter-status'.
Note: Twitter has a posting limit of 1000 tweets per day and about 15 tweets in a burst; any tweets that exceed this limit will be ignored. Therefore, this extension should not be used for any frequently occurring events or notifications.
Always feel free to fork and contribute any changes directly via GitHub.

Note: This extension works only with a dedicated SaaS controller or an on-prem controller. Alerting extensions, currently do not support multi-tenant SaaS controllers.
1.1: Twitter's URL shortening does not work with localhost or private IPs. This version fixes that by using tinyurl's URL shortener.
