400 (Bad Request) API 1.1


Hello twitter,

I am in need of help I am try to make a ajax request but I keep getting an error (https://api.twitter.com/1.1/search/tweets.json?callback=jQuery19108726453273557127_1367708256558&q=jQuery&_=1367708256559 400 (Bad Request) ).

This is my code:
type: ‘GET’,
dataType: ‘jsonp’,
url: ‘https://api.twitter.com/1.1/search/tweets.json’,
data: {
q: “jQuery”

not sure what I am doing wrong can someone help me??



API 1.1 requires authentication for all requests, which makes using it in client-side code via jQuery difficult and/or insecure and unrecommended.


Is it possible to use PHP to authenticate and then use javascript API calls after that? If so, how?


I have the same problem (400 Bad request) with this code:

var usuario = ‘username’;
$.getJSON(“http://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/user_timeline/"+usuario+".json?count=1&callback=?", function(data) {

Is there other way to get the tweets?, I just need to consume the tweets from my web site.


has anyone pure jquery/javascript solution to call auth search api ?
