Common: Interaction

The common targets are useful when you want to create streams that work for input objects from any source.

For example, if an input object comes from Twitter, interaction.content contains the same string that you would find in twitter.text or twitter.retweet.text, the text of a Tweet or Retweet. Alternatively, if the content comes from YouTube, interaction.content might contain a comment about a video.

To learn more about the mappings to the interaction.* family of targets, take a look at our What's in the Interaction Targets? page.
