Getting Twitter API Consumer and Secret Keys
In order to use the Twitter API Key to pull tweets from your Twitter into the theme, you’ll need to create a Twitter Application through your account. It may seem super-technical, but it’s actually very simple to do.
- The first thing you need to do to get your Twitter API key is to create a Twitter Application. Visit apps.twitter.com and login to your Twitter account. Then just fill out the basic information for the application and it’s ready to be published.
- Now that you've created your application, Twitter has assigned you a few data points to work with.
You must create a personal Access Token and Secret Key to allow you to unlock personal account functions with your application – just click Create Access Token and Twitter will add these data points as well.
