OAuth 1.0a (http://oauth.net) is used to to access protected resources

unless you configure it with a consumer key and secret.)
* Note: The plugin will still push notices to Twitter for users who
have previously set up the Twitter bridge using their Twitter name and
password under an older version of StatusNet, but all new Twitter
bridge connections will use OAuth.
** For multi-site setups you can also set a global consumer key and
secret. The Twitter bridge will fall back on the global key pair if
it can't find a local pair, e.g.:
$config['twitter']['global_consumer_key'] = 'YOUR_CONSUMER_KEY';
$config['twitter']['global_consumer_secret'] = 'YOUR_CONSUMER_SECRET';
Upgrade
-------
If you've used the Twitter bridge plugin prior to version 0.9.5,
you'll need to run the new scripts/initialize_notice_to_status.php
script to initialize the new notice-to-status mapping file, which
greatly improves the integration between StatusNet and Twitter.
After saving your configuration file, please run 'php scripts/upgrade.php'
and also restart the background daemons if they are active on your instance.
Administration panel
--------------------
As of StatusNet 0.9.0 there is a new administration panel that allows
you to configure Twitter bridge settings within StatusNet itself,
instead of having to specify them manually in your config.php.
To access it, you'll need to use a user with the "administrator"
role (see: scripts/userrole.php).

Sign in with Twitter

With 0.9.0, StatusNet optionally allows users to register and
authenticate using their Twitter credentials via the "Sign in with
Twitter" pattern described here:
