Twitter

Added in v0.2.0.

Connects to the Twitter API and displays a single user’s tweets.

NOTE: This only works for single-application developer accounts for now.

To make this work, you’ll need a couple of things:

  1. A Twitter developer account
  2. A Twitter bearer token.

Once you have your developer account, a relatively painless way to get a bearer token is to use TBT.

Configuration

  bearerToken: "3276d7155dd9ee27b8b14f8743a408a9"
