I’m having a similar problem, when I try to generate a cURL command through twitter’s oAuth tool I get the following code >

curl --get ‘https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/home_timeline.json’ --header ‘Authorization: OAuth oauth_consumer_key=“SECRET”, oauth_nonce=“SECRET”, oauth_signature=“SECRET”, oauth_signature_method=“HMAC-SHA1”, oauth_timestamp=“1379366110”, oauth_token=“SECRET”, oauth_version=“1.0”’ --verbose

When I try to run the code in CMD I get >

    SSL certificate verify ok.

Hey , I am facing same problem, even i concate the valid user in the profiles… Have you got any answer


any solution to above issue?? I am also striking my brain since one day…


I’m facing same issue. Did you have any solution to resolve?


I was also facing the same issue. My app redirect back successfully. But when I try to get the user property then it was showing the {“errors”:[{“message”:“Bad Authentication data”,“code”:215}]}.

Finally I got success to solve this issue. I have changed my OAuth library version variable value from 1.1 to 1.0.

Hope this information is working for you. All the best.


I am encountering this also. Any advice please.


Which OAuth library were you using when you solved this with the 1.1->1.0 change?
