[resolved] How can I get Twitter-connect user to have a real email address? (5 posts)

    Thank you for the excellent plugin!

    I am using this to register users before giving them free downloads. I noticed that Twitter users are registered with a fake twitter email address, which defeats the purpose.

    Is there a way that you know of to make that be a real address?

    thanks a ton!

    I have read a lot of articles in this topic, but there is no way to get the email address through the Twitter API. So currently there is no way, but we are thinking about to create an option in our plugin to get the email address from Twitter user on the register.

    What do you think about this?

    I believe it could be worthwhile. It could be presented as a seamless part of the process.

    I've seen this in action with another plugin and it works great.
    Within the loop back to the site, light box PopUp saying 'Just one more step to go, please fill in this one time only email address and this process is forever complete'.

    Filled in, job done, email address in place.

    Version 1.4.39 will request email address in the Twitter registration process.

    I hope it will work fine for you!
