Twitter API and Twitter Secret – How to get them

If you want to add a twitter feed to your WordPress site you will need what is called the Consumer Key (or Twitter API key) and the Consumer Secret (Twitter API Secret). This isn’t hard to do, just follow these easy steps:

1. Go to https://apps.twitter.com/app/new (you might need to sign in with your usual Twitter login and password).

2. Fill out the form with your details and submit it. I recommend you give it a memorable name such as “twitterFeedMyCompanyName” so that you remember what it is in the future.

3. Go to the “Keys and Access Tokens” tab.

4. Copy and paste the keys into your twitter feed widget.
