I have gone through the process of implementing oauth from scratch on my website, but am unclear about one step in the process.
Acquiring a request token is not a problem and I am getting an oauth_token and oauth_token_secret fine, no problems there. But after this I am sending the user to Twitter to authorize after which Twitter will redirect the user to my website, and I have lost control over the user. Testing it on my own pc works fine and I can get read the verifier from the url on the screen. Combined with the previously acquird tokens I than receive back the screen_name and user_id + plus the required token and secret. The problem is that I do this in two steps, while reading an url from my screen. Obviously when a user somehwhere else does this I cannot read the verifier from the screen and continue the process. I am missing something with the oauth_callback and how to use this. I should get the oauth_verifier back in the first script which then should continue with acquiring and storing the tokens, and it should not be a two step process. How do I solve this? -- Twitter developer documentation and resources: http://dev.twitter.com/doc API updates via Twitter: http://twitter.com/twitterapi Issues/Enhancements Tracker: http://code.google.com/p/twitter-api/issues/list Change your membership to this group: http://groups.google.com/group/twitter-development-talk
