Once you allow Twitter users to authenticate their login with the WordPress Questions and Answers, they will be able to submit questions or answers to your forum. 

This setting can be customized to specifically allow Twitter authentication within the plugin settings panel. If this setting is left empty, the Twitter option will not appear. 

To register your site with Twitter, the admin must complete the following steps:

  1. Create Twitter application at https://developer.twitter.com/en/apps
  2. Remember to enter App Domains (your-domain).
  3. Make sure that callback URL is set to your homepage. 
  4. On settings tab check option “Allow this application to be used to Sign in with Twitter”.
  5. On settings tab uncheck option “Enable callback locking”.
