OAuth update

Friday, February 13, 2009 by Dave Winer.

A picture named eyes.jpgI'm still stuck where I was last night with getting OAuth to work with Twitter. I've been able to get all the way up to making a call that requires authentication, and I've constructed the query with what I think is correct OAuth credentials, but Twitter says its an "Invalid OAuth Request." Permalink to this paragraph

Matt at Twitter posted a note saying that it might be because my app hasn't been turned on, but later he told me it had been turned on but the query still isn't working. Permalink to this paragraph

Now I'm going to look for other OAuth services to test against. If you have any suggestions please post a comment. Thanks! ;-> Permalink to this paragraph
