Is it possible to use email scripting to get the latest Instagram posts?

Several suppliers offer the ability to put real-time user generated content into email - for example, the latest Instagram posts from a particular user. Is this possible through email scripting using the import.read functionality, or does Marketo block calls except to specific IPs?

Instagram has an API, so I think we could get that info through a webhook before any email is sent....but I'd like to do it through scripting if possible, it's cleaner. I ran into the same problem trying to get real-time weather in through scripting using DarkSky.

Thanks, Phil

You'll have to use 3rd party tool that collect that info in Instagram and insert the info in a Marketo lead field or in a Marketo custom object.
