 Greetings ThingSpeakers!

I'm a relative newbie to thingspeak, got my raspi3 sending data to a thingspeak channel OK. But now I want to use ThingTweet and React to notify me at a certain temp. I have an existing Twitter account/passwd. So I've gone to Apps->ThingTweet and clicked the Link Twitter Account button, but don't get a field to enter my twitter uname and password (as all the help/example pages show). My only choices are Authorize App or Cancel, no place to enter uname/passwd. If I click Authorize App, it happily proceeds to "jwd3ca" has been successfully linked to ThingTweet, but I fairly sure that w/o twitter auth info, no React will actually be able to send a tweet. Anyone know what's up with this and how to proceed from here? Thanks! (Ubuntu 17.04/Google Chrome)

Answered my own question: Chrome was doing auto-login to Twitter, so no uname/passwd was prompted for. Logged out of twitter, then got the auth fields. Duh 🙂 Now to see if I can get a React to tweet me...
