Hi everyone, I'm in the same boat as Paul G. My company publishes updates to Twitter whenever we post a new story. To date our code using basic authentication was working great. Now we're switching over to OAUTH using Abraham Williams library. I setup an app on Twitter's development site, got my keys and tokens and tried using the PHP twitteroauth library, but on my test server I can't even get the example to work. I get the "Could not connect to Twitter. Refresh the page or try again later" message. I've got the library running on my Mac Pro with Apache running on a port-forward.
I'll note that when I created the app I used application type: browser and callback url: blank Any help would be appreciated. Code always welcome :-) Marc On Jul 22, 2:09 pm, Paul G <p...@taosinteractive.com> wrote: > Hi Everyone. > > I've been puzzling overOAuthfor some time now with little insight > into how to apply it to my situation.
