Oauth Signature Creation


I have to say, trying to write a little bit of code to interact with twitter’s API has been difficult… Just to create an oauth signature seems a little over the top…

The oauth signature should really be created on the “My Applications” page of your application, just how the token can be created with a click of a button. Let alone the API docs are not written very clear, the precent encoding variable and other items for the POST string to create a signature is so convoluted that I almost scream.

On another note, I’m using curl for what I want to do and it’s slightly painful. I really wish there were examples of the authentication like other languages that are present on the dev site.
