Graphene Twitter Widget not working with Twitter API v1.1

  • Tim Beresford


    The twitter widget on my blog ceased to be able to pick up tweets late yesterday, and I believe it is to do with the switchover by Twitter from their API v1 to API v1.1

    Can anyone please tell me whether this widget has been updated and, if so, how I might download the updated version?

    Thank You.

    After installing the plug in – this message ….

    I suppose I have to set up a twitter account

    Twitter recently announced that they will be changing the way that they allow people to use the information in their tweets.

    Please take the following steps to make sure that Rotating Tweets continues working:

    Step 1:

    Go to the My applications page on the Twitter website to set up your website as a new Twitter ‘application’. You may need to log-in using your Twitter user name and password.

    Step 2:

    If you don’t already have a suitable ‘application’ that you can use for your website, set one up on the Create an Application page.

    It’s normally best to use the name, description and website URL of the website where you plan to use Rotating Tweets.

    You don’t need a Callback URL.

    Step 3:

    After clicking Create your Twitter application, on the following page, click on Create my access token.

    Step 4:

    Copy the Consumer key, Consumer secret, Access token and Access token secret from your Twitter application page into the settings below.

    Step 5:

    Click on Save Changes.

    If there are any problems:

    If there are any problems, you should get an error message from Twitter displayed as a “rotating tweet” which should help diagnose the problem.

    If the error message references SSL, try changing the “Verify SSL connection to Twitter” below to “No”.

    Multiple Twitter Accounts

    Even though you are only entering one set of Twitter API data, Rotating Tweets will continue to support multiple widgets and shortcodes pulling from a variety of different Twitter accounts.

    Twitter API Settings

    Twitter API Consumer Key

    Twitter API Consumer Secret

    Twitter API Access Token

    Twitter API Access Token Secret

    Verify SSL connection to Twitter

    No, you do not need to create a new Twitter account (assuming you already have one – the one you’re trying to fetch the tweets from?). But you do need to create a new app as outlined by that plugin.
