I created a Twitter application for our account AdverseEvent which I ultimately want to use with the Wordpress plugin ‘Tweet This’ which is used by Time Magazine and over 100,000 Wordpress blogs, so I feel the stock php code for OAuth is solid.
I have clicked the ‘Create my Access Token’ in the dev.twitter.com My Application settings several times in about 6 hours, it says it will take several moments. The token never appears under the OAuth settings tab and these links on the main page produce following results:
Request token URL
https://api.twitter.com/oauth/request_token - Failed to validate oauth signature and token
https://api.twitter.com/oauth/authorize - ‘There is no request token for this page…’
Access token URL
https://api.twitter.com/oauth/access_token - Blank page
Furthermore, this remains even after I click it:
Your access token
‘It looks like you haven’t authorized this application for your own Twitter account yet. For your convenience, we give you the opportunity to create your OAuth access token here, so you can start signing your requests right away. The access token generated will reflect your application’s current permission level.’
Do I seriously need to implement OAuth on my domain just to post a tweet via wordpress, the learning curve for OAuth is enormous and this should be simple in my mind.
Thanks for your help!
