Creating a Twitter Application

Important
The APIs and other features of social media sites may change with little warning. The information provided on this page was correct at the time of publication (31 January 2012).

On the website https://apps.twitter.com/, click Create an app.

On the resulting page, sign in or create an account.

On the Create an Application page, fill in Application Name, Description, and other attributes (you must enter something for Application Website, but it need not be a real URL).

Review the resulting Settings page.

Copy the values of Consumer key and Consumer secret and assign them to the x-consumer-key and x-consumer-secret options of your Social Media Server object, as described in Deploy Social Messaging Server with a Twitter Channel.

Click Create my access token in the Your access token section. Access Token and Access Token Secret appear in the same section (you may have to refresh the page). Copy their values and assign them to the x-access-token and x-access-token-secret options of your Social Media Server, as described in Deploy Social Messaging Server with a Twitter Channel.

Important
Because the eServices Facebook application is used for Twitter ESP requests, the facebook-server-app-name option is used to specify a Twitter server application name.
