  1. thanks a lot . few days ago i was playing with the twitter API and i noticed that they did something like FB connect silently :O , then i try to get it and failed 😦 .

    Thanks a lot for this nice post .

  2. cool thing! i have developed an small addon to that allowed users to update their forum’s status and also be reflected in their twitter account. but for that users has to provide username and password u know. but when I saw I was wondering how did they done that! but could not manage time to rnd! u did my tasks! thanks. I will update the app very soon so that users don’t need to give password :).

    1. saif bro, you need to use oAuth. it requires a live session in twitter for the first time authenticating. 🙂 – there’s no way to avoid it.

  4. Hi,

    Thanks for this. I’ve just installed got the pecl extension working! (at last!)

    Now, I have been able to use it to ‘fetch’/GET any info I want – but how do use it to fetch/POST anything? LIke a status update etc?

    Any pointers would be great! 🙂 thx

  5. Thanks for the post. I’ve been unable to install OAuth in cPanel using PEAR. I keep getting this error: C compiler cannot create executables.

    Any ideas?

  6. Thanks for this article. This has cleared whole doubts I had with oauth. great work… love this article 🙂

  7. you will be going to use all of these in your application. now lets see how oauth works in brief. it initiate the talk using your consumer key and secret key. and then it request the “request token” from the service provider. if u r successful, you have to forward user of your application to the “authorize url” with the “request token”.

  8. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Many thanks
