    It shouldn’t give you a PIN at all. This means that you set up your twitter application wrong. Go back to the Twitter application, and put in the Callback URL properly.

    Same issue here. Either we did some non-obvious mistake during setup, or Twitter has changed something.

    For instance, the plugin told me to setup the application as “browser” type, but I have not seen that option. It’s not offered anywhere in the Twitter application settings.

    About the callback URL, what should that be? The URL of the WP site?

    EDIT: Answering my question, it seems that this worked, entering my WP site URL into the “callback URL” field allowed the plugin to authenticate itself.

    Yes, twitter has changed their developer tool a couple times since I wrote those instructions.

    Putting in the callback URL is enough to make it work properly.

    When I used the domain URL plus the Access Token it worked.

    You don’t need to add “accesstoken”. Just the normal Site URL is all that is needed for the callback URL.

    That’s what I did the first time and it gave me the PIN message.

    It should only give you the PIN message if you leave the Callback URL field blank.

    Very helpful, thanks!

    Hi Otto or djbrock,

    I’m having the same issues with PIN as djbrock, but I’m not seeing a Callback URL field anywhere. Can you elaborate?

    To summarize :
    1) I click “Sign in with Twitter” on your plugin (0.15) settings page
    2) The “Authorize App” screen comes up
    3) After clicking authorize it gives me a PIN

    Not sure how it could be any clearer, really.

    – Go to
    – Click your Application
    – Click the “Settings” tab
    – Scroll down and fill in the “Callback URL” field properly.

    After this, you won’t get the PIN thing anymore.

    Thanks Otto for the Callback URL hint, it worked!
