Post-media-upload authentication? Could not authenticate you, and missing documentation


#1

Has little to no information on what an example call might look like or how the authorization headers should work. Just says that it does Require authentication.

This has lots of details… So I’m using auth headers that work well to send a tweet here, but get a “Could not authenticate you” when uploading media. What is different about authentication for uploads? The word “auth” isn’t even in the post-media-upload docs.
