- Get your callback URL from Mautic
From your Mautic dashboard, click the settings (gear) icon in the top right, and then click on Plugins. Click on the Twitter plugin icon. In the box that pops up, copy the callback URL.
- Finish creating your Twitter app
Switch back to creating your Twitter app, and paste the callback URL into the appropriate field. Click “Create your Twitter application” to create your app.
- Get your Twitter API key and secret
Now that you’ve created the app, click on the “Keys and Access Tokens” tab. Copy the Consumer Key and Consumer Secret and paste them into your plugin settings in Mautic.
- Complete the integration
To complete the integration, click “Authorize App”. A popup will appear, asking you to authorize the connection to Twitter. Allow it to authorize, and you’re done! Don’t forget to set the integration’s Published setting in Mautic to Yes. Take a look at the Features and Contact Mapping options!
