When setting up Twitter as a data source our first step that we advise users do is to 'Create a new Twitter application'

Recently Twitter has added a lengthy process to be approved for a twitter application and we could offer new users some more advice as to how to get approved and what Twitter needs to approve.

Links to Twitters application documentation would be useful for users.

You also must have a twitter account in order to set up an application and even view the docs.

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
Users would be frustrated if they needed to set up twitter feeds into platform within a short period of time. Especially if they are not familiar with this kind of set up.

Describe the solution you'd like
A short description on what a twitter application requires e.g. An existing or new Twitter account preferably linked to your project or organisation, a short description of what kind of twitter information you will gather and what you will do with it,

A short text that reads ' Twitter applications may take a few hours or a few days to be approved by Twitter. Please be aware of this if you need this data quickly'
