in other words, is there a way to get more information as to why? bad header, bad format, missing parm etc?
posting to the API call with Java HttpURLConnection - https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/update.json
authorisation header looks correct, certainly seems awfully similar to the samples that can be generated on the API page for that call
is there a dev link that I can post my query to that supplies more information rather than the mainstream active APIs?
