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.

  1. 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.

  2. Now that you’ve created your application, Twitter has assigned you a few data points to work with.

Note

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.
