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. ;-)
