I'm not having success with the following code, I get a "Sorry, page

and guidance is very appreciated, thanks!

If I type the following out in IRB, it seems to work, but of course I
can't redirect from the shell.

        session[:request_token] = @request_token

        redirect_to @request_token.authorize_url


Hi I found by making the following change I now see the allow/deny page.
However when I click on allow, I do not get redirected back to my
callback page?

@consumer = OAuth::Consumer.new( "bLXXXXXXXXI9szbXTJQnXKA",
         :request_token_path =>   "/oauth/request_token",
         :authorize_path     =>   "/oauth/authorize",
         :access_token_path  =>   "/oauth/access_token",
         :http_method =>   :get ) )

What I am seeing in the pin page, saying:

You've successfully granted access to XXXX_TestApp!
Simply return to XXXX_TestApp and enter the following PIN to complete
the process.

How do I get Twitter to return back to my callback page on my site? My
app type is correctly set to "browser".

You should send theoauth_callback  parameter, as specified by the


Hi Tom,

I have tired sending oauth_callback, made sure that my callback url
matches exactly the one specified in twitter app setting, something like

redirect_to @request_token.authorize_url + "&oauth_callback=" +

I am testing the site from home using dynamic dns setup, would this be
causing the problem?
Also in the call to OAuth::Consumer.new, should the http_method be :get
or :post ?
I've also changed :site=>"https://twitter.com"; to, :site =>
I'm still not sure what I am doing wrong and I feel like I am chasing my

Hi Rajinder,

Sorry if you misunderstood my last message. You are supposed to send the
callback in your oauth_callback parameter. If you get the PIN page, then
you send "oob" - out-of-bands, as your oauth_callback.

Section 2.1 of RFC 5849 (OAuth 1.0) specifies oauth_callback as REQUIRED
- so, you are probably already sending it (either that, or Twitter
doesn't follow the specifications).

Also, it is a part of Section 2.1 of the OAuth specification - the part
where the client talks to the server. The line you changed was Section
2.2 - the redirection part.

Hi Tom,

I finally figured it out, the examples for RoR using OAuth seem to be stale. I was peeved at what seems to be a 'simple' process has to get so complicated.
