Twitter Stats

Connects to the Twitter API and displays statistics about the number of tweets and followers for a set of usernames.

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

  1. A Twitter developer account

… and one of the following:

a) A Twitter bearer token
b) Consumer API keys

You must have either a bearer token or consumer key + consumer secret provided. To get the consumer API keys, you must first create a Twitter application. Then, go to the “Keys and tokens” page and copy the API key and API secret key under the Consumer API keys section:

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