Hi Taylor,

Here is an example of trying to create a favorite on status
10390395026. Here is the base string:

POST&https%3A%2F%2Fapi.twitter.com%2F1%2Ffavorites%2Fcreate
%2F10390395026.json&id%3D10390395026%26oauth_consumer_key
%3DoVpGXZGmqq7NyScJTLd7Xg%26oauth_nonce
%3DogJ8y0%26oauth_signature_method%3DHMAC-SHA1%26oauth_timestamp
%3D1268428713%26oauth_token%3D10881-
YdTJEhpXTBk2NJyg3juPXV8rq05jfGLp6HA1rk6MvI%26oauth_version%3D1.0

Here is the Authorization header:

OAuth realm="",oauth_version="1.0",oauth_signature_method="HMAC-
SHA1",oauth_nonce="ogJ8y0",oauth_token="10881-
YdTJEhpXTBk2NJyg3juPXV8rq05jfGLp6HA1rk6MvI",oauth_timestamp="1268428713",oauth_signature="4EM
%2FeX8xCFnW77zWtTTKFQoftaQ
%3D",oauth_consumer_key="oVpGXZGmqq7NyScJTLd7Xg"

The POST body is just:

id=10390395026

The URL is:

https://api.twitter.com/1/favorites/create/10390395026.json


Thanks.
