Will twitter support ms-app for windows 8 metro apps callback urls? more info here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh465277.aspx


#1

Twitter callback url doesn’t seem to support url formats that start with ms-app:// … . When I use one of the functions of the webauthenticationbroker of windows 8 apis then I get an error when the callbackurl is called that my app couldn’t connect to the callback service.
What’s the alternative for my case for now if this won’t be supported anytime soon?

Thanks,
Sami

While you can’t set custom URI schemes on your application record, if you put a HTTP-based placeholder URL in the callback field you can send custom URI scheme to the oauth_callback parameter on the oauth/request_token step.
