Hi George,

Happy to help but just need to clarify a few things:

xAuth isn't something you use when you're executing a Twitter API
resource, like posting a tweet or fetching a timeline. You do use
OAuth to sign the request. xAuth is just the variation of OAuth that
you perform to obtain an OAuth access token.

After creating a read-only application, and negotiating an access
token (by xAuth or standard OAuth), that access token is also marked
as read-only. After changing your app to read/write, you then need to
renegotiate the access token to imbue it with read/write permissions.

If you're still getting an unauthorized when trying a write (or read!)
operation, than it's likely that you're not correctly generating your
signature or signature base string when trying to access that
