  4. Application secret = Access Token Secret

Unless you have done it already, confirm the twitter account in the email they send you.


After experimenting, Scooter has found that after a recent Twitter API change, that creating a Project in order to relay Wurm feed to a Twitter account will NOT work anymore. You have to create a "Standalone App" but first to do this, you must apply for Elevated access to the Twitter API. After the standalone app is created, enable Oauth and set it so it can read / write, and from there it is simply the case of inputting the keys into your settlement token. If you have any questions regarding this, please feel free to contact Scooter.


The /tweet chat command sends your twit to the village twitter if enabled.

Server Twitter Feeds




Epic (Historical)

Challenge (Historical)


Normal chat will not appear on the server twitter feeds, only server-wide events like disbanding, appointment of offices - things that go in the Area History.
