Twitter Series: #3 Hello World

You should now have the API running with v1.1, your application setup and your keys/secrets all together? Yes? Great, lets begin...

Hopefully your directory structure is currently like this:

+ Root Folder + twitteroauth - OAuth.php - twitteroauth.php

If so, then in the "Root Folder", create a file called "hello.php".

Now we will begin. At first we will need to assign all the keys and secrets as seperate varibles, like so:

<?php // Consumer key $consumerKey = ''; // Consumer secret $consumerSecret = ''; // Access token $OAuthToken = ''; // Access token secret $OAuthSecret = ''; ?>

Within the single quotes, you will need to put your values that're shown on your Twitter application's page.

Twitter Series: #2 Setting Up Your Application

Hopefully, you're all running on Twitter's API v1.1 now, as explained in the previous post.

Enter your login details as they are for Twitter normally, then you will need to authorise Twitter's Development page to allow you to continue, then once you've authorised it, you will be able to create your first application.

Twitter Series: #1 Using Twitter API v1.1

The final stages of the transition from v1 to v1.1 of Twitter's API went fully complete 11th June 2013, however there's still a fair few people using v1 of the Twitter API and moaning that it's not working. Well obviously it's not going to work now as it's been totally switched off.

However updating to use v1.1 of the API is very simple.

Now before I start rambling on about how you can do things, I would like to point out that I am using Abraham Williams' Twitter OAuth class for this post (as it's the first and main one I've came... [read more]

Twitter DM's Keep Disappearing?

Twitter DM's Keep Disappearing

Are you seeing that you've got a DM ("Direct Message") on Twitter, yet when you check it there's nothing there? Or when you go to re-read one of your DM's it's no longer there? Well there's one reason as to why this will happen that not many know about.

The Sender Deleted The Message Their End

Twitter works much different to how other websites internal messaging systems work. Normally if you delete the messages in your inbox, then they just go from your side. However with Twitter, the DM also removes it from the other... [read more]

Hey Twitter, I Have An Idea

About 25 minutes ago Twitter decided to not work (and still isn't at the time of posting this) - this is more than likely because they're fully applying that update I moaned about earlier throughout the site. Not sure why they need to take this much time as they've surely got test servers to put it on before making it live - luckily for me though, I was able to still use Twitter during these problems because I've obviously made myself a few Twitter-based web apps that process the stuff via Twitter's API (which was thankfully, untouched).

However, I also have... [read more]
