I’ve been looking for guides on how to post to Twitter using C#. It seems a little while ago Twitter changed their authorisation methods and is now using oAuth. What that means is the internet is a litter of useless guides and tutorials all giving old out dated information.

Eventually I found some good guides but it looks like it is now a pretty convoluted process. First you need to register the app to generate a set of keys, which you post to a REST service that returns a pin, in the same session you then need to return the pin to authorise the application. Security wise it’s a lot better apparently but requires a bit more thought.

I’ll be leaving out the twitter interaction for the time being. At this time there is plenty to be getting on with without spending too much time on what is a non-essential part of code.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
