Canvabadges setup question

Jump to solution

Can anyone explain why I need twitter to setup Canvabadges?  I am not a twitter user but would like to setup canvabadges at the account level.  I can't figure out why the twitter connection is needed to get the key and secret.

On the setup page it says that canvabadges can read tweets and see who I follow.  Seems like an odd requirement to me.

Thanks

Brad

Hi,  @jpierce2 .  He simply uses the Twitter API to handle the generation and management of keys/secrets.  It doesn't actually *use* Twitter for anything other than that.  I'd just create a throw-away Twitter account if you don't want to use a real one.
