Hi Vince, There's actually a much easier way for you to implement the simple ability to Tweet from your application without having to code up the OAuth song & dance or xAuth, but the frictionless approach comes with the downside of less control, attribution, and feedback.
Web Intents ( http://dev.twitter.com/pages/intents ) has a "Tweet Intent" where you would just direct the user to http://twitter.com/intent/tweet -- if your webview was aware of the current user's twitter.com session, authentication would already be handled -- otherwise the user would quickly log in and have the ability to Tweet. You can prepare a message, make the tweet a reply, use a retweet instead, and a few other options. @episod <http://twitter.com/episod> - Taylor Singletary On Tue, Apr 5, 2011 at 10:05 AM, Vince <svguer...@gmail.com> wrote: > I've been doing some research on this, and just wanted to confirm that > this is what needs to happen in order to develop an iPhone app that > has a page which allows a user to simply login to Twitter, then tweet > a quick message to their "wall" (no other Twitter functionality is > needed, this is a very small feature of a large application).
