Fill out the app name, description, your website URL and the callback url.
Note: for the Callback URL copy it from the Twitter Crawler config section. You can reach the Twitter Crawler Config Section via your site domain followed by
wp-admin/admin.php?page=twitter-crawler-app-settingsAs an example
The resulting page will show the overview of your Twitter app with 4 tabs (Details, Settings, Keys Access Tokens, Permissions). Click on Keys Access Tokens as shown in the screenshot. You need to add these to the Twitter Crawler Plugins configuration.
Additionally, for the app to work, we need to obtain Access tokens for our Twitter App. This allows us to perform all our needed functions without having to log in or authenticate the app for our account. To do this go back to your Twitter apps Key & Access Tokens tab and scroll down. Click to generate the tokens so that you can later add them to the Twitter Crawler app config Access Tokens section.
Lastly we want to change the app permissions to ensure our script can perform all actions we need. on the dev.twitter.com site under your app, click on the permissions tab. Next click on the radio button for enable "Read, Write and Access direct messages " permissions.
In your Admin navigation bar you click “Twitter Crawler” (the Plugin is also reachable via
Under the settings tab of the Plugin enter in the Twitter App Key/Secret, the access tokens we generated and click Submit to save these settings
To setup a Twitter url to crawl you must find a Twitter page that provides content matching your theme. You can use google or Twitter to search for users who are posting information at you want to import into your blog as posts.
Simply copy a Twitter url into the "Twitter page Url" field and click "Save Changes". Do this for as many Twitter pages as you would like.
Once you see the Twitter page listed you can now work on the Twitter Crawler settings for this specific Twitter page. You can control what Twitter post type should be crawled (links, pictures, videos, text only posts, etc), What type of content type it should create on your website (blog, post, page, etc), what categroies it should be posted in on your website (uncategorized, blog, tech blog, etc) and finally what status theposts should have (preview, published, pending, draft, etc). Once you have completed configuring the settings for all of the Twitter pages you added click save changes. Now all Twitter pages will be crawled and the respective content will be created on your website.
In order for the script to run we need to set up cronjobs. These are scheduled jobs that will call our script to run at designated times. For example every 15 minutes. We recommend running the cron every 15 minutes.
Depending on your technical skill you can achieve this through a number of methods. Either setting them up directly on your linux/windows server or using a 3rd party service.
We recommend using cron-job.org. It is a free cron service that is reliable for achieving the needs of this Plugin.
