At the end, you can see the APi versions: V1.1 and V2.0. You can clearly see that v1.1 supports media and v2.0 doesn’t. That means if you select V1.1, you will be able to upload a media file from your WordPress site to Twitter, and if you select V2.0, you will not be able to do so. You can select either one. 

Here, I am recommending that you select V2.0, as you generated the client ID and client secret. Client ID and Client Secret are for V2.0, not for V1.1. Then press the Add button. 

If you generate an API key and API secret, then you can go with V1.1.
