Creating Twitter client in Visual Basic 2010


#1

Hi everyone,

I’m trying to create a desktop client in Visual Basic following this tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGxl4kaNYwM

The problem is that when I’m debugging the app won’t authorize with Twitter. I don’t know whether its because the code doesn’t use Oauth??

Any help with my project would be greatly appreciated!

You need to use Oauth for any desktop application that will interact with Twitter. You need to use a library such as TwitterVB2 which allows for that. You can search for TwitterVB2 and perhaps find one. The video shows the pre-Oauth method for Twitter. Good luck

Thanks! managed to find the TwitterVB2 and that’s now working perfect. I’m trying now to get a socket message from a third-party app to appear in a text box in my client and auto post to Twitter. Something people haven’t tried as I can’t find any tutorials on the web and have been trying to paste bits and pieces together with no joy.

Where did you get the twitterVB2.dll ?

Hi, I´m a spanish student and I’m starting to create an application.
I would like to know if i can make simultaneous calls to Streaming API with the same user. For example:

https://stream.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/filter.json?track=winter

and

https://stream.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/filter.json?track=summer

I want to do it with different requests but I don’t know if it is possible. I try to test it in my browser but I don’t know what user and pass I have to write.

Can anyone help me?
