Hi, I have to disagree. I think that the twitter team is doing an awesome job on their support.
With the help of the documentation at dev.twitter.com and the people on this mailing list, I was able to write a complete oAuth library for Objective-C in less than 5 hours. Before starting, my oAuth knowledge was Zero. I believe that there are ready-to-use libraries available on dev.twitter.com, and I would consider those example code. Not that you really need them, considering how simple oAuth can be :-) I think that I should also state that I am not a professional programmer - I am a 17 year old kid doing some programming. No insult intended, but if a 17 year old kid can do it, you'd say that it would be easy for a professional. ;-) Tom On Jul 28, 1:04 am, globaljobber <gerardn...@exciteinternet.co.uk> wrote: > Hi, > > I am not one for rocking the boat.....and am sure I'm going to get > shot down for this.......but........ > > I've been working trying to do something what should be simple.
