This step-by-step tutorial was made for our Instauro prestashop module to show how easy can we make a Twitter Application.
To make a twitter app, you need to go to https://dev.twitter.com/apps . Here you need to sign in with an existing Twitter user.
After signed in, you can start to make the application, with the Create a new application button, in the upper right corner.
Name: Your application name. This is used to attribute the source of a tweet and in user-facing authorization screens.
Description: Your application description, which will be shown in user-facing authorization screens.
Website: Your application’s publicly accessible home page, where users can go to download, make use of, or find out more information about your application. If you don’t have a URL yet, just put a placeholder here but remember to change it later.
Callback URL (optional): Where should we return after successfully authenticating?
After filling those fields, you must to accept the “Rules of the Road” and complete a captcha. You must generate “acces token” on the page below.
Thats all what you need for the Instauro module to work with the Twitter timeline.
