I follow that.

I was wondering if the creds needed to be in a session var or not.

I'll give it a try!

Thank you!

Hello Paul,

In redirect.php the request token (also called temporary credentials) are one use. After the user returns from twitter.com having authorized the application they are exchanged for an access token from Twitter which is long lasting and what you are after.

If the request token is not being saved/retrieved from sessions properly you can print it and the authenticate URL in redirect.php instead of automatically redirecting. Copy/paste the authenticate url into a browser window and authorize the app to access the user account. Then you can manually put the request token into the quick and dirty code instead of pulling from a session. Keep in mind that you can only use the request token once so if you don't print the access token the first time you will have to do it all again.
