Re: [twitter-dev] How do I register a non-existent app?

Hi Taylor:

Thank you for your help :D. I registered the app using my Twitter name and 
public url so now I have the required codes and I can continue with the 
software design and hopefully, quickly move to test plan and coding.

Hi Tamara,

Just use placeholder data on dev.twitter.com/apps while registering your
application. You can use your @username as the name for your application or
something similar. For the callback URL -- this value is really just a
placeholder for all intents and purposes anyway, and so as long as you can
provide a valid URL there, you should be fine. With OAuth, you must specify
your callback URL explicitly on the request token step anyway.

After creating your application record, you can then use your API key and
secret to negotiate OAuth tokens and make calls from there. API methods that
don't require authentication also don't require that you use an API key to
access the resource, instead you could just simply explore the API using
curl or a simple HTTP library and move on from there.

Many beginners with OAuth find the tips on this page useful as well:

 Hello Developers:

 I have always heard of Twitter but just recently created a Twitter
 account. I want to develop an app which will use the Twitter API and
 more specifically the REST API to collect public Tweets and then
 perform some processing. I have been reading the documentation but
 still have a long way to go. Therefore, my concern is that my
 application is still in the design phase of the software lifecyle
 which means that I have not yet decided on a name and there is no
 website or callback URL. How then would I be able to perform a
 registration? I wanted the flexibility to code in functions or classes
 and test by making calls to the API instead of waiting until the full
 application was complete. However, in order to get developer access to
 the Twitter API I need to register the app and also according to the
 Authentication pages, registration is needed in order to use OAuth. I
 also looked at Twitter4J which also requires the use of OAuth. I am
 grateful for any advise that you can give. Thank you.

 Cheers,
 T Williams
