Once logged into your Twitter account, go to https://apps.twitter.com/ and click the “Create New App” button.
On the next page, and fill out the information on the form to create your new Twitter app.
When filling out the form about your Application, make sure that in the "Callback URL" you put http://[yoursitedomain]/Account/ThirdPartyLoginCallback.
When you’re done filling out the form, accept the Twitter Terms of Service agreement and click the “Create Your Twitter Application” button. Now go to the "Settings" tab, check the "Sign in with Twitter" option, click the "Update Settings" button and you’ve successfully created your Twitter app. Keep your Twitter tab/window open, since you’ll need some of that information to save into Answerbase.
Now go to your Answerbase administration site in your other tab/window and click on the “System Settings” link in the main navigation. Once you’re in the System Settings area, select the “Third Party Login” option to view your settings for enabling Twitter login and registration for your users.
In the Third Party Login area, you are able to turn Twitter login/registration “on” or “off”. Make sure that option is turned “on” to enable that for your users.
Under the area that is titled “Use your own Twitter Application”, you’re going to need to enter the information from the Twitter Application that you just created. Go to your open Twitter tab/window and find the “API Key” and “API Secret” in the "API Keys" tab. Copy those items, one at a time, and bring them back to paste into the related fields in your Answerbase administration area.
Once you have filled out both of the fields, click the “Save” button on the bottom of the page in your Answerbase administration area and you’re done!
