Hello all, I'm quite new to OAuth and the Twitter API, and this is my first post to this list.
I'm working on an app in Python using the Twisted framework. It uses brosner's fork of python-oauth2 to do the initial authentication and subsequent request signing. I'm using the PIN code flow for authentication. Do access tokens need to be generated every time you start the app, or can they be stored between runs and reused? If so, how long are the valid? Right now, my code writes the access token and secret out to a file and recovers it the next time it starts. The procedure seems to go just fine – I don't get any errors – but I can't really verify that everything is Correct because I don't really know what I'm looking for… Second thing, I'm at the point where I'm trying to do the initial connection to https://userstream.twitter.com/2/user.json. I'm using SSLConnect and web.HTTPClient, if that helps… I write out the command (GET <url>), and the headers (a Host and an Authorization header). The OAuth library generates the following Authorization header content. I get back a 401 Unauthorized error with a WWW-Authenticate: Basic header. I've heard from @twitterapi that User Streams require OAuth, so why am I getting a Basic auth response? OAuth realm="Firehose", oauth_nonce="25622603816219309853125867384777", oauth_consumer_key="<cut>", oauth_signature_method="HMAC-SHA1", oauth_version="1.0", oauth_token="<cut>", oauth_signature="1AV5YG4DsfCV4jDoQcOCOmxZ2Gw%3D" Anything obvious there that I'm doing wrong?
