BlueBird for Twitter: Need some help with steps for acquiring API, tokens, etc.

Danny Tam October 8, 2014 by Danny Tam

Hi All,

Was hoping someone can help me with this! I'm not a developer by any stretch, so some of the terminology and lingo is a bit beyond me. :(

BlueBird's GitHub page mentions going to https://dev.twitter.com/ to register for the Twitter API and obtain "Access Token, Access Token Secret, Consumer Key, and Consumer Secret."

I managed to find a documentation page titled "Obtaining access tokens," but none of the scenarios seem applicable to my use case (displaying tweets from a Twitter account onto my website).

There was also a link for creating a new app, but not sure if that's relevant.

If anybody can point me in the right direction, I'd be truly grateful!
