I am trying to pass parameters to the search API using PHP, GET and CURL, without parameters the API work fine. When I try to attach the parameters, I get the message could not authenticate. Does anyone know how to get around that?
The Search API in API v1.1 requires OAuth authentication. You can’t use curl arbitrarily to access the API and should use an OAuth-ready library like tmhOAuth or twitteroauth in PHP to access.
