NoteWe would like to bring to your attention an important update regarding Twitter’s recent policy change. Twitter has made adjustments to its token expiry time, reducing it from 90 days to 2 hours. This means that our app users will now have to log in to their Twitter account more frequently to post content.

Next, you will be asked to log into your Twitter account via the following screen. Enter your details and select the "Authorise app" button to continue.


After logging in successfully, you will see the following screen. Notice that the red cross under the Twitter logo has turned into a green check mark.
