Getting started with Streaming API


#1

I am new to the Twitter API and was wondering how I could get streaming working for things such as home, mentions, direct messages, search and user timelines in my C# WPF app. I apologise for my bland question but I have no direction as to how to get streaming working.

First you’ll need to register an application at https://dev.twitter.com/apps

Then you’ll want to read up on [node:6345]. This is the API that streams data around a specific authenticated user. The data it streams can then be interpreted to belong to different buckets/concepts, like a home timeline or mentions timeline. It’s kind of up to you to interpret the messages you get and decide how you want to treat them.

What I don’t understand is how to parse the streaming links in C#
