The website at https://dev.twitter.com is very confusing for someone who does just want to register an app with Twitter instead of implementig OAuth himself. For the latter it’s great
Hint for registering app with twitter Twitter should list http://apps.twitter.com (instead of https://dev.twitter.com)
So you are proposing a change to the Twitter how to for auth.
I looked at this a bit, and while apps.twitter.com is certainly the right spot once you’re logged in, it’s a complete ghost town until you’ve created an app.
Maybe better to just point to the how-to?
No I suggest to change the explanation for the checkbox to activate Twitter authentication. It resides in the translation files config/locales/server.xx_XX.yml. The How To directs the user correctly to apps.twitter.com.
twitter_consumer_key: "Consumer key for Twitter authentication, registered at http://dev.twitter.com" twitter_consumer_secret: "Consumer secret for Twitter authentication, registered at http://dev.twitter.com"
Isn’t that the correct place to get the key and secret?
I think the confusion here is the category is login but you’re talking app.
