You can integrate Twitter into your Aritic PinPoint system with this guide. Twitter, as a social media platform, is extremely vibrant and can give you instant results if done religiously. If your users are more active on Twitter, you can integrate this plugin and start leveraging your Twitter profile along with other automation campaigns. To get started, you will first need to generate Keys and Access Tokens to integrate the Twitter plugin.

Make sure you have your phone number activated in your Twitter profile. If this is not done, you cannot create an application and generate the Keys and Access Tokens. You can do this by going to the Settings option in your Twitter profile and add a phone number.

Open apps.twitter.com and click on Create Application. You will need to fill in all the details below and click on Create your Twitter application to proceed.
