  4. Go to our admin area to the Global settings -> Twitter generator and copy out the Callback url. and insert it into your application's Callback URLs field.

    After it is done, press Create.
  6. Press Create on the popup window too.
  7. Your App is ready and you should go to the Keys and tokens. Copy out the Consumer API Keys (API key and Api secret key).
  8. Paste them into our admin area Global settings -> Twitter generator settings. (Make sure that you don't have any empty space characters in the end or beginning of them.)

    Press  Request token.

    Chrome blocks popup windows by default, so if you won't see one appearing, check your url bar's right side, if you see a popup being blocked and you should unblock it!
  9. Fill in your twitter login details and press Authorize app.
  10. After this you will see the token appearing, and you should save on your settings.

  11. Now the api is done, and you can create a new slider, or use an existing one.

  12. Choose to give dynamic slides to your slider.

  13. Pick Twitter - Timeline.

  14. Set up your generator, change the number of slides to how many do you want to be in your slider, change the cache expiration to the time you want your slider to look for new data, and if you want to, you can check, what will be on your slides in the record viewer.
  15. Now you can start working on how your slides will look with the datas of the first slide. You can put down layers, and use the VARIABLE signs to put that data inside them, what you want there to be.
