Getting different account


#1

I use a wordpress theme where a twitter feed is automated by putting in my OAuth settings.

I keep getting a different twitter account with a similar name.

Why is that?

Kind regards,

Lee

Hello,

Are you using the credentials of a Twitter app that you created somewhere in the settings of your WordPress theme? Please take at look at https://apps.twitter.com/ in order to retrieve not only the API key and secret, but also an access token for the account you are signed in with to post Tweets to this account.

By the way, we recently published an article titled “Broadcasting the voices of WordPress users, one Tweet at a time” with a tutorial on how to share posts from WordPress to Twitter so I recommend it: https://blog.twitter.com/2014/broadcasting-the-voices-of-wordpress-users-one-tweet-at-a-time.
