This guide will show you how to setup a Twitter App & use the API keys which is required if you wish to use the Twitter Social Sharing buttons and have the tweet counter show correct share numbers.

You will need your own Twitter account in order to create the Twitter App so ensure that you have created a free account by going to http://www.twitter.com first before starting this guide.

Step 1: Login to Twitter and go to developers site

Then click on the "Create New App" button:

Step 2: Fill out the "Create an application" form
