Using OAuth image has an error


#1

It seems that there is an error in the picture from using OAuth 1.0a page - https://dev.twitter.com/docs/auth/oauth.

This picture: https://dev.twitter.com/sites/default/files/images_documentation/oauth_diagram.png - it looks like the ‘D’ should be Response no Request text description. ‘Response includes’ instead of ‘Request includes’.


#2

I’m not sure it’s incorrect. To be pedantic, step D represents the start of a new HTTP request, sent to the client application. From a HTTP request/response standpoint, the diagram appears to be accurate.


#3

Agree from the HTTP request/response but when you use it in code, you read ‘oauth_token’ and ‘oauth_verifier’ from a response and use them together with others for a request (step E). Just something to be aware when developing.


#4

The image is taken directly from the OAuth specification - http://oauth.net/core/1.0/#anchor9 - so you’ll probably need to ask them to clarify things.
