Authentication to Streaming API failing (was working earlier)


#1

Hey, is the streaming API down or something?
I am using Twitter HBC to track streaming data.
It was working fine earlier but now it is constantly giving 401 error and is unable to authenticate.


#2

I am having the same problem using twitter4j and basic auth.


#3

I am also using Twitter4j with OAuth and I can post a response, it appears as a reply from my account but the person who sent the tweet can’t see my response! How strange …


#4

Switched to OAuth and my application is connecting again.

Basic auth was disabled for the streaming API on June 11, 2013: https://dev.twitter.com/calendar
