  • Build Date: 2016-07-07
  • Requirements: Symphony 2.3 - 2.6.6


A Symphony extension that allows you to retrieve tweets from a twitter account.

Installation - git submodules

This extension uses an external library for twitter communication which resides in lib/twitter-async/. If this folder (or its contents) do not exist for you please ensure all git submodules have been updated recursively.

Obtaining a Consumer Token and Secret

In order to use this extension you must register an application with twitter to allow OAuth communication.

  • Visit https://dev.twitter.com/user/login and sign in
  • In the drop down under your screen name in the top right select “My applications”
  • Create a new application and fill out the required fields. Be sure to set a callback URL (your website URL or preferences page are both fine), leaving it blank will result in Symphony errors when visiting your preferences page.
  • Once created, you should be able to see a Consumer Key and Consumer Secret, save these to the twitter preferences on your Symphony website.
