TwitterAppBundle at its core is just a simple proxy bundle between twitteroauth client and symfony2. It is only meant to be used as a clientless app. If you want to add Twitter login/register/etc functionality to your app, please consider using FOS/TwitterBundle instead.

Example usage

Example use-case for this bundle would be automated twitter messages (from your project account) about certain events in your system.


With deps:

Add this bundle and Abraham Williams' Twitter library to your application:



With composer:

Add this bundle to your composer.json:

// composer.json
    // ...
    require: {
        // ...
        "inori/twitter-app-bundle": "master"

Register the namespace Inori to your project's autoloader bootstrap script:

    // ...
    'Inori'    => __DIR__.'/../vendor/bundles',
    // ...

Add this bundle to your application's kernel:

public function registerBundles()
    return array(
        // ...
        new Inori\TwitterAppBundle\InoriTwitterAppBundle(),

Configure the twitter_app service in your YAML configuration:

    file: %kernel.root_dir%/../vendor/twitteroauth/twitteroauth/twitteroauth.php
    consumer_key: xxxxxx
    consumer_secret: xxxxxx
    oauth_token: xxxxxx
    oauth_token_secret: xxxxxx

NB! To learn how to get keys/tokens, take a look at Twitter Developers documentation. For a quick walkthrough check below.

Using TwitterApp

If the setup is done correctly, then you can start using TwitterApp like this:

// ...
$ta = $this->container->get('twitter_app');
$messages = $ta->getDirectMessages();

TwitterApp comes with some basic methods for easier usage (tweet, follow), but for most of the API features you should use twitteroauth via getApi() method like this:

// ...
$ta = $this->container->get('twitter_app');
$trends = $ta->getApi()->get('trends');

Getting Twitter API tokens

  • Login at Twitter Developers page
  • Create your application
  • Go to your app profile page via My applications
  • There you will see Consumer key and Consumer secret under OAuth settings
  • Under Your access token you should see Access token and Access token secret, if not then simply press "Recreate my access token"
  • Make sure Access level is Read, write, and direct messages, if not then then go to Settings tab and under Application Type -> Access choose Read, Write and Access direct messages
