Twitter API in Academic Commons

Some time ago (in the middle of 2013), Twitter changed how external applications (such as on your mobile phone or, say, your Academic Commons WordPress site) requested and received data. Consequently, your widget may have stopped displaying your tweets. Inexcusably, we have not published a how-to for fixing this until now. The documents for how to get your tweets into your site as well as how to publish your posts out to Twitter may refer to plugins unfamiliar to you; as part of clarifying the situation, we found that at least one of the plugins previously available failed with the new Twitter rules, so we replaced it. We would prefer questions about the instructions mailed to itg@yale.edu, but comments about their content may be left on the pages themselves.
