Sol, They do come from Twitter, but your program must retrieve the token and extract the access token and secret. If your program doesn't save them to variables or cookies, subsequent requests will fail, for example. You probably haven't probably retrieved them.
That said, I am having problems making new Twitter programs work during the last 48 hours for newly registered programs. There may be some kind of problem with the API. I wasn't having any problem day before yesterday. ~Patrick On Fri, Jan 28, 2011 at 3:02 PM, Sol <sol.leder...@gmail.com> wrote: > Marc, > > Where do the access token and access token secret come from? > I thought they cam from some computation that twitter does with > the consumer key and consumer_secret.
