I’d recommend looking at one of the Windows libraries such as Tweetinivi which will offer methods to help you offer Twitter login. The author, @TweetinviApi, is active in these forums and really helpful too :slightly_smiling:

Thank you. I can login and get the username. My problem is that i get the url with this line:

var appCredentials = new TwitterCredentials(Consumer_key, Consumer_secret);
var url = CredentialsCreator.GetAuthorizationURL(appCredentials);

but the problem is that i don’t know how go to this url from my app and don’t from other browser. Please, help me. Thank in advance.

If you are using Tweetinvi it looks like there’s a wiki page here that could help you.

This is a general question about .NET. But in any case what you can do is use a WebView in your application.

The WebView will open a browser page for you inside your application.
The user will then have to copy the ‘verifier_code’ provided to him after he has successfully authenticated.
