Setup/Installation: Twitter - Social Networks Auto-Poster

How to setup Twitter in SNAP WordPress plugin and API

Twitter uses OAuth to provide authorized access to its API. You need to create Twitter application with “Read and Write” access level and get “API key”, “API secret”, “Access token”, and “Access token secret”.

There is no need to separately “authorize” your blog, just enter all applicable info.

Twitter Configuration

1. Create a Twitter App for your website.

1. Login to your Twitter account.

2. Go to the Developers website: https://apps.twitter.com/ Sign in again if asked. Click “Create a new app” button on the right.

New App

3. Fill details, click “Create your Twitter application”.

Please use your own information for the next step, don’t literally re-type “NextScripts Blog”, “NextScripts.com” and other sample info.

New App Page

4. Click “Permissions” tab.

New App

[Very Important] Change “Permissions” to “Read and Write”. Click “Update Settings”

Twitter requires you to add mobile phone number to your account and confirm is via SMS. If your phone provider is not yet supported there is a workaround:

If you install the official mobile application on iOS/Android phone, then you can login to the website with mobile number and change permissions from “read” to “read/write”.

1. Install and sign in to the official Twitter app on your iPhone or Android phone.
2. Assign your phone number to your twitter account inside that app.
3. Come back to twitter.com from your PC, logout and login with your phone number instead of your username.
4. Go to the dev and change permissions. You won’t be asked for SMS confirmation.

5. Click “Keys and Access Tokens” tab. Click “Create my access token” button at the end of the page.

Wait couple minutes and click “Refresh”. (Keep refreshing the page until you see “Your access token section.”)
