Thanks. Now I'm using the post method.
How should I use the track parameter? Something like this? address = New Uri("http://stream.twitter.com/1/statuses/filter.json? track=Microsoft") I'm getting connected but no data that matches Microsoft is streaming over.No data for that matter. I'm passing my name and pw in the request.credentials method. The server returned a 200 OK when I added the credentials but not when it was in the URL alone. ie; address = New Uri("http://stream.twitter.com/1/statuses/ filter.json?track=Microsoft - name:pw" Thanks, Peter On Mar 2, 5:19 pm, John Kalucki <j...@twitter.com> wrote: > The text file approach only applies to POST parameters set from the curl > command, and in no other case. > > When creating an HTTP client from within a program, you should be able to > configure the POST parameters via method calls.
