I am looking to write a workflow where I’m listening or polling for new messages in a discord channel (that is posting updates members arent allowed to comment) and then tweeting the message which contains a link for an embedded image. Is there any good tips on doing this? Create tweet seems to have a section for attachments but not sure how it works if I just have a link to the image. Also the Discord node only works for posting to the channel but not authenticating and listening to a server. Would there need to be a feature request for this?
I’m not too familiar with the Discord API, but I do not think you can do polling since the API that allows you to detect changes is socket base. I think we will need to create a Discord Trigger to make this workflow possible. There is already a feature request to create the Discord Trigger. Make sure you upvote it.

As long as you can download the data using the link, that should not be an issue. You can download the data using the HTTP node and then reference the image (binary data) in the Twitter node using the attachment field.
