The TwitterLogin extension adds Twitter OAuth sign up capabilities to MediaWiki. The code is derived from Dave Challis' implementation done for Web8D 2010 and also uses the twitteroauth library by Abraham Williams.

You need to register an application with Twitter in order to be able to use this extension. See the Configuration section for more details on how to register a Twitter app.

This extension does not work with MediaWiki 1.19 and higher when you require your users to confirm their email addresses ($wgEmailConfirmToEdit = true), since setting an email address now requires a password (which does not exist for users who authenticate through Twitter).



The twitteroauth library requires the php-curl module.



In order to use this extension, you will need to register your MediaWiki installation as a Twitter app. You can do so here.

You will need to set a callback url in your app's settings. This will in most cases be https://wouwikidomain.tld/wiki/Special:TwitterLogin/callback.

When you have registered your application, you will get a consumer key and secret. Add these to your LocalSettings.php file, just below the line where you required the extension:

$wgConsumerKey = '[yourkey]';
$wgConsumerSecret = '[yoursecret]';

Release notes

  • 0.1 - Initial release.
  • 0.2 - Now uses MediaWiki's http class instead of curl directly.
  • 0.3 - Now uses Twitter's 1.1 API link.



  • Support tying Twitter screen-names to existing MediaWiki accounts.
  • Redirect first time users to their preferences screen to let them confirm their email address.
  • Add an option to be set in LocalSettings.php whether Twitter users should be automatically emailconfirmed or not.
