Follow User Using XML or JSON?


My programming language book tells me I can follow people with XML feeds. The book was written in 2012, so what is the current status if I create a Golang program, so I can test following people? It seems like I need an app and authentation nowadays?


Hi @tomihasa, the Twitter API version 1.1 (current version) only supports JSON endpoints, no XML feeds anymore. Also, OAuth is now necessary for accessing the Twitter API, yes. Find out all about it here:

Does this help you?


Yes, it does. Thanks!
