Reply to Specific Tweet


#1

Hi friends,

i want to reply to specific user’s tweet using Twitter API in my iPhone Application.
how to implement this?

Posting a reply is basically the same as posting any tweet – use POST statuses/update and supply the in_reply_to_status_id parameter with the tweet ID you’re replying to, and begin the tweet with the @username who authored the tweet being replied to.

Hi Taylor,

Thanks !
Sorry for my bad English.

I have applied the same you mention here using MGTWitter Engine API. But it is not working .

Hi!

How would I go about getting the ID of a tweet that brought the user to my web page? I don’t see any tweetID parameters being passed into my URL.

Here’s my use case:
Alice loves my web page, tweets out a link to it.
Bob clicks on the link embedded in Alice’s tweet.
When Bob arrives, I want to offer him a webIntent that allows him to Tweet a reply to Alice’s tweet.

Where do I get the ID of Alice’s tweet?

Thanks!

Hi Taylor,
I am able to reply with the help of Statuses/Update API.
But the problem is the reply is only visible to me(the person who replied) and not visible to the intended recipient.
Also got the in_reply_to_status_id=null in response of Statuses/update API.

Please suggest some clue?
