I have been using Airtable and created a column in which I have added links to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram profiles. I manually added the follower count, but I want to know if it is possible to update the follower count automatically for these social media platforms in real-time. Can you please help me with this?

That would only be possible if their REST APIs support getting the follower counts.

You can tap into external REST APIs by using one of 3 methods:

1. High-code: Writing your own custom Javascript scripts in Airtable.

2. Medium-code: Using

3. Low-code: Using Make’s automations and integrations.
