Would you like LiveWebDJ to tweet the name of every song and include a link to your station's website to your Twitter account?
Here's an example Tweet:
#NowPlaying Rob Zombie - Dragula :: Tune In: suckerpunchradio.com
You can either have LiveWebDJ tweet song titles to your station's main Twitter account, or you can create an additional Twitter account separately for song titles.
- Sign into the 'Twitter Developers' site using your Twitter login details, you're going to create your own app that LiveWebDJ will interact with.
Don't worry this is easy, we'll walk you right through this!
Twitter Developer Site:
Proceed to the "Create An Application" page:
- Type in a unique name for your app. You can call it whatever you'd like, as long as it's not taken. For example you could call it "XYZ Radio NowPlaying App".
- Type in a description for your app. Just a simple description such as "What's playing on XYZ Radio".
- Type in your station's website address.
- Leave 'Callback URL' blank.
- Agree to the TOS.
- Verify you're a human by completing the CAPTCHA.
- Click the 'Create Your Twitter Application' button.
- Your app is now created, and you're automatically taken to your new app's page.
- Click on the 'Settings' tab.
- Change the 'Application Type' access setting from 'Read only' to 'Read and Write'.
- Click the 'Update This Twitter Application's Settings' button.
- Click the 'Details' tab.
- Under the 'OAuth Settings' section, verify that the 'Access Level' is now set to 'Read and Write'. If it says 'Read Only' wait a minute then refresh the page. If it still does not say 'Read and Write', redo Step 4 above.
- Now that the 'Access Level' is set to 'Read and Write', under the 'Your Access Token' heading, click the 'Create My Access Token' button.
- Once the page refreshes, verify that the access token has been created. You will know this because you will see a 'Access Token', a 'Acess Token Secret', and the 'Access Level' will be 'Read And Write'.
- If the 'Access Level' under the 'Your Access Token' section is set to 'Read Only', go back to Step 4 above, then click the 'Recreate My Access Token' button.
- Leave this browser window/tab open, we will need the information on this page in another step.
- Congratulations, your very own Twitter app is now created. This final step will get your LiveWebDJ account configured to interact with your new Twitter app.
- Login to your LiveWebDJ account in a separate browser window/tab.
- Click on 'Settings'. Then click on 'Twitter Integration'.
- Refer back to your Twitter App browser window/tab, and copy & paste the following information in the LiveWebDJ window/tab:
- Consumer Key Code
- Consumer Secret Code
- Access Token Code
- Access Token Secret Code
Change the 'Twitter Integration' setting to 'Enabled'.
Once you have completed all steps above, please allow up to 5 minutes for LiveWebDJ to start sending tweets! If after 10 minutes LiveWebDJ has not started tweeting your station's song titles:
Verify that the codes in Step 6 have been copied correctly into the LiveWebDJ 'Twitter Integration' settings page and that the codes are complete. Please note these codes are case sensitive.
If the codes are correct, make sure that you have the 'Twitter Integration' setting enabled within LiveWebDJ.
