Slightly confusing instructions for application-only auth


#1

In Step 3 (listed here https://dev.twitter.com/docs/auth/application-only-auth), you’re instructed to include an Authorization header with the value of Bearer <base64 bearer token value from step 2>.

I interpreted that to mean I needed to base64 encode the access_token value I got from step 2 instead of using the value as-is. Perhaps it’s my fault for not immediately recognizing the encoded string but I think the instructions could be a little bit clearer especially for newbs like myself.

But lesson learned and a cautionary tale to others wrestling with this issue. :slight_smile:
