I am using TwitterConnector to log users in to my application.  I have it working successfully, and I am able to retrieve most details of their Twitter profile (eg ID, Name etc).  What I cannot get working is the email retrieval.  I have set my Twitter App up so that email retrieval permissions are requested and I am using the values output by User_Show to get profile details.  I can't see email in here though - am I using the wrong Server Action?

Hi Kirsty,

Sorry for the late reply.
I'm still going to leave an anwer for you and everyone else that might be wondering about this:

As you can see on the link above, by default, there is no access to users emails, but you can set it up in order to access them. You'll probably need to change the connector too so it can receive a new email field.

Regards
