How to use

I was sent here from the Android Play Store app description. I have to say to expect any user to know what is meant by "activity tab" and "rate limit" is an unreasonable demand. Why is info on how to apply these keys in a user comment?
philip, the reason probably has to do with the twitter API unfortunately. Twitter's API poses numerous problems for developers and makes it very hard to work properly. Specifically, the hard limit on the API for tokens probably a huge factor in this, they probably put it on the description page so that not everyone uses it and they don't reach their limit.
I've used the Twitter for Android key, put a tab on Twidere for Actives about me, but it only seems to update once or very very slowly? The Official Twitter Android client is showing favourites that don't appear in Twidere for Activities about me, not sure why hoping someone else might know.
It is a probability that the official apps have switched to the callback method (at least, Twidere behaves the same way as if I specify other keypairs with callback type from here). I suggest everybody who has signed in using the official keys to make a full backup of Twidere data, everybody else keep your fingers crossed and hope the team can do something about it.
If anyone else is having trouble with this, here is what I did:
ALSO IMPORTANT: You will need to have a phone where you are already logged into the accounts using these official API keys. This is because we will be copying over the credentials from that phone to your new one. If you aren't already logged in with these API keys somewhere, as far as I know, you are out of luck, sorry.
Anyway, from now on I will refer to the phone you're trying to use the official keys on as the "new" phone. The "old" phone is the one where you already have your twitter accounts logged in an d working properly with the official API keys/secrets above.
However, despite all the above, I don't think it is likely you will break your phone if you follow these instructions carefully.
Thinking about it now, it MAY be possible to use this same file to find the official Twitter app's API keys/secrets/etc and copy them into twidere's format, but I'm so disgusted by the official app that I haven't even checked if it stores its information in this database. If you're up to that challenge, or know where to look for the official app's API keys/secrets/etc, then it might just work.
