Another "Failed to validate oauth signature and token"


#1

I’ve this problem that many others have been through. I’m doing everything correct but still i get this annoying “Failed to validate oauth signature and token” error :slight_smile:

Well, something got to be wrong I guess…

I’m trying to obtain a request_token by making a post to “https://api.twitter.com/oauth/request_token” with headers:

Authorization:
OAuth oauth_consumer_key=“MYVq…ywj2g”,
oauth_nonce=“m8NG0s4oc87AOIpuILafAeI1YoMv5Mu9”,
oauth_signature=“Bxb%252FFIfOG9KLVj%252FUNdV%252FycVlGPs%253D”,
oauth_signature_method=“HMAC-SHA1”,
oauth_timestamp=“1378976842”,
oauth_version=“1.0”

But it complains about signature and token.
Is my signature invalid somehow?
And for this request I dont need a token right??

Are you using a library to make the request?

You’re correct that there would be no oauth_token at this step of requests.

Check out [node:204] for some tips.
