I tried to set up the OAuth for Twitter, but keep running into the following error when using the 'Test provider' function in the ACP:
An error occurred while connecting with Twitter. Error: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <hash> <error>Desktop applications only support the oauth_callback value 'oob'</error> <request>/oauth/request_token</request> </hash>
This is fairly uninformative and I'm not really able to tell what is wrong... Any ideas?

Unfortunately that's just the message we get back from Twitter.

On the "Test provider" overlay does it display the correct callback URL e.g.
1507557379987.png
And if it does, is that the same redirect URL configured in the Twitter app you created to get the API keys?

Forgot the s in the https redirect url. That's what you get from typing it yourself instead of copying. Will take some time until I get used to that. :unsure:
Thanks a lot! It's working now.
