twitter access for Kitely


here’s how to setup a Twitter list and how to access a Kitely world via that list (i hope i have all the steps here!)

lol, this seems like a lot of steps but it took me only a two minutes to set up the Twitter access =)



log in to both your Kitely and your Twitter accounts. then select the Kitely world you want this for and click Manage and then the Access tab. select Create Twitter List and follow the Kitely directions



select List in the left sidebar on Twitter and create a list. it must be Public. that only means others can view it, but they can’t add themselves to it – only you can add people to that list (or remove them)



your list will then show up and you can start adding people to it



find whoever you want to add and use the drop-down next to their name to add them to your list



all of your lists will show up and simply select the access one you just set up



you can edit this list anytime in Twitter, as your needs dictate



once done in Twitter, return to your Kitely page and you should see the access list you just created. you can set your billing for that list – Normal charges the visitor, Free charges you, and you can Select Price (you can charge people and make some KC or you can actually pay visitors – Kitely will take 1 KC or 10%, whichever is greater )



now you can give your Kitely world URL to list members and they will come to that world’s page and click the Login button



they will be prompted to login and you would tell them to do so with Twitter, in this example



if the visitor is not logged in to twitter, they will be prompted to do so. their account name and password are NOT sent to Kitely – this is highly protected by Twitter and there is absolutely no way for Kitely to obtain those credentials (unless you email them to Ilan or Oren! no need to do that!)



once your visitor is logged in (my green arrow), the Login button becomes the Enter World button. they click this and away they go! if they don’t have a viewer, the Kitely site is wicked smart and will prompt them to download it and it will start automatically (very smooth and sophisticated)



the page indicates the viewer is starting and will place your visitor in a transfer station if your world isn’t currently active (probably nice to tell them in case they are like me and don’t bother reading the transfer station signs and simply freak out and run in circles) =p



the Kitely website indicates that the visitor is connected



the viewer starts up like normal except that the visitor does not need to enter credentials – so far the user has only needed to be logged in to their Twitter and then click buttons on the Kitely site – that’s easy to take for granted but it is some serious design and development by Kitely (yah, i’m a fangrrrl) =p



ooh, pretty! =D



voila! success and the visit is recorded in your Kitely history


setting up Twitter access is faster than reading all of this and then all you do is tell your visitors:

check out my world at blah/blah and login with your Twitter account and prepare to be amazed!

well, maybe do it in your own way, i might be too subtle, modest, and humble! =p

but do have fun! =)
