Friendica/Twitter

from HTYP, the free directory anyone can edit if they can prove to me that they're not a spambot

The instructions for connecting Friendica and Twitter are a little misleading. The packaged instructions imply that there is a way to configure the plug-in through the web interface, but this does not seem to be the case; you have to edit the {{l/same|.htconfig.php]] file. There are instructions for doing this, but they tell you to insert a line which actually breaks the code and causes a blank screen.

$a->config['twitter']['consumerkey'] = [consumer key provided by Twitter];
$a->config['twitter']['consumersecret'] = [consumer secret provided by Twitter];

Do not add this line: $a->config['system']['addon'] = "twitter"

"Consumer secret" strings may be generated via Twitter's application control panel.
