For creating a twitter application, I am using R-3.1.1, RStudio Version 0.98.983 and the updated packages twitteR (installed from github), RCurl, digest and ROauth. I am following the ROauth protocol and not the twitteR package from Hadley Wickam’s github repo because I want to use the object for the streamR functions such as filterstream.
reqURL<-"https://api.twitter.com/oauth/request_token" accessURL<-"https://api.twitter.com/oauth/access_token" authURL<-"https://api.twitter.com/oauth.authorize" consumerKey<-"xxxxxxxxxxxxxx" consumerSecret<-"xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" twitCred<-OAuthFactory$new(consumerKey=consumerKey, consumerSecret=consumerSecret, requestURL=reqURL, accessURL=accessURL, authURL=authURL) download.file(url="http://curl.haxx.se/ca/cacert.pem", destfile="cacert.pem") twitCred$handshake(cainfo="cacert.pem")
To enable the connection, please direct your web browser to:
When complete, record the PIN given to you and provide it here:
The problem is that on using ROAuth, the web URL address generated by R (to get the PIN) redirects me to a webpage saying that “Sorry that page does not exist”.
Since I am testing my application, I used the IP address of my localhost appended with :1410 as my callback URL. I have used a similar protocol previously without errors and I don’t see any answers for this message. What am I doing wrong?
