    Hello

    I just upgraded and I am now receiving the following error;

    Twitter Authentication data is incomplete

    I'm not finding anywhere to adjust settings. Does this have to do with the API announcement? The old version of the plug in was working fine for me. Any help appreciated :) (EDIT - blog is http://www.makeuptogo.com )

    Hi TDRock,
    you're right, this has to do with the new Twitter API.

    Starting from the 2.0 release, the plugin is based on Twitter API version 1.1. In order to use it, you have to create a personal Twitter Application on the https://dev.twitter.com/apps website.
    Within your Application, Twitter provides two strings: the Consumer Key and the Consumer Secret.
    You also need two other strings, the Access Token and the Access Token Secret, that you can get
    following this guide.
    Finally, enter all the Authorization string in the widget options box, along with your favorite display settings: your Twitter Widget is now ready and active!
