I’m currently working on client side app where I would like to get a feed of a public user timeline without the user of the app being required to have a twitter account.
I am successfully able to do this using v1 of the API and it all works perfectly. Making a request to http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.json?screen_name=username retrieves all the information that is required.
However, since v1 has been deprecated and v1.1 requires authentication for each request, I get a bad authorization error. Having looked at the Twitter documentation and how to generate OAuth request headers, I don’t fully understand the “Getting a signing key” section of the documentation in the link below. (please bare in mind, this is my first time working with Twitter’s API and OAuth)
As I understand it, the consumer secret can be found when logging into twitter.com/apps but I’m not sure where I would get the “OAuth Token Secret” in order to generate a valid signing key. Is this specific for the user? Or can this be my twitter “apps” token secret? (if so, where can this be found?)
Any help would be appreciated.
