GETTING STARTED OAUTH
|On the twitter service you first need to do a once off Application registration - this is effectively giving permission for 3rd party applications to request access to your twitter account.
Create a new app in twitter
|The application will set up 2 keys for you:
# Consumer key
# Consumer secret
You then need to use:
Example Steps as a user giving permission (once only per user):
You can now request a token (which is done in 3 phases).
|Request an application level token:
You will be returned a parameter: oauth_token
That you need to redirect to the Twitter user authentication page, eg:
Twitter will then call back to the url you specified when setting up the application or the url supplied in the NETWORK_OAUTH_REQUEST_TOKEN call as &urlcallback=
They will be used in the phase 2 in step 4 next.
|Requesting the user access token
This gets back the auth_token and secret for the user and saves it against their account for future use.
|Sending status update to twitter:
You can use any method with the Twitter REST API
Graph theory is the theory of links and nodes and how they interconnect – so a “graph” represents these links, on facebook.com the links to friends represents your social graph.
