This tutorial is for the (SPYR) Tweet-stimonials plugin.
With the latest update to the Twitter API we no longer have access to Twitter data without first authenticating via OAuth. Although that sounds scary, it’s actually extremely simple with (SPYR) Tweet-stimonials.
Click the your Twitter Dashboard link.
Sign in with your normal Twitter account. Don’t let the “Developers” title scare you away :)
Click the Create a new application button.
Enter your details. What you enter here isn’t very important, you’ll never see it again, but it is a required step.
Copy your Consumer Key and your Consumer Secret and paste them into the appropriate fields in the Tweet-stimonials Dashboard.
Click the Create my access token button.
Copy your Access Token and Access Token Secret and paste them into the appropriate fields in the Tweet-stimonials Dashboard.
Save your settings.
Confirm that it now say Authenticate as @YourUsername and you’re all set!
