Effective immediately, there will be modifications to the way ReportGarden interacts with the Twitter API. ReportGarden will no longer be able to provide you with data from the free/standard API provided by the official Twitter App. However, we can continue fetching the data on your behalf, provided you subscribe to Twitter’s Paid API and connect them to ReportGarden.
In order to continue using this Twitter Analytics Integration in ReportGarden, you will need to create your own app on Twitter. This will cost $100 per month for obtaining the access. Once you have obtained your API credentials from Twitter, you will need to enter them in ReportGarden so that we can fetch the necessary data for you.
The steps to be followed are mentioned here.
Step 1: Go to https://developer.twitter.com/ and login with your twitter credentials
Step 2: Go to https://developer.twitter.com/en/portal/dashboard. This is your twitter developer portal where you can create clients that can request access to your twitter account.
