In the previous post we went through creating a great looking Maintenance Page on your WordPress blog.
One of the steps in the process was getting a hold of 4 different keys from Twitter so that we could display a twitter feed on the Maintenance page.
These are the keys we need to obtain.
- Consumer Key
- Consumer Secret
- Access Token
- Access Token Secret
In order to pull tweets from a Twitter account (or other information) and display them in a feed widget for example, we need to create something that’s called a Twitter App. Even though it may sound complicated or overly technical, it basically comes down to filling up a simple form and clicking Create.
So, without further ado, let’s get started.
Create the Twitter Application
Generate the Keys
Once we’ve created the application, the only thing left is to use that application to generate the 4 keys we need for our twitter feed widget.
