I always wondered where it was. Thanks for sharing this I'm sure many people will find it useful. Does anyone know if Twitter Auth is anything like LinkedIns because it looks very similar and I'm interested in trying to create a LinkedIn login system for MyBB or IPB. If it's similar than I should be able to get it done more easily and for less.


Also, does Facebook connect work in a similar way? Do you setup an app and get various IDs and is the option in the same place in the ACP?
