New Twitter API does not allow to instantly check, whether tweet was actually posted by customer. Instead of that, it allows just to register his intention to make a tweet. So, to ensure, that Twitter points was awarded for actual sharing, we need to check existence of actual Twitter post.
This is when special Twitter App come, which should be registered at Twitter account of given store.
To create one, go to the Twitter Developer Site and log in using your Twitter Account credentials. There, in footer menu proceed to Tools -> Manage Your Apps.
Click on Create New App button and fill the following fields of creation form:
