Step 1: Create a Twitter Developer Account

To create a Twitter App, you need to have a Twitter Developer Account. If you don't have one, you can create it by going to the Twitter Developer website. Click on "Sign up for Free Account" button and fill out the required information and submit the application. 



You can use this text for "use cases":

We plan to use the Twitter API for the following purposes:
- Schedule tweets
- Engagement with users (Reply, Like, Retweet + Quote)
- Extract profile metrics from connected accounts
- Extract posts with their metrics from connected accounts

We will display graphics like:
- Increasing the number of followers for each day of the last 3 months
- The number of likes, retweets, comments, profile clicks, and link clicks for each day of the last 3 months
- ..etc.

The accounts that we are going to connect to the application (oAuth) with the Twitter API belong to us and are managed by our team.

We got acquainted with "Automation rules" and "Twitter Rules".

You will be redirected to the automatically created application.
