Hi all,

I have used the API developed by Matt Gemmell for Twitter Integration
in iOS. I'm stuck when coming Authentication/Authorization. In the
API, it states the following:

// XAuth login - NOTE: You MUST email Twitter with your application's
OAuth key/secret to
// get OAuth access. This will not work if you don't do this.
- (NSString *)getXAuthAccessTokenForUsername:(NSString *)username
password:(NSString *)password;

What should I do with this? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Hai Solyda,

You must raise a ticket in twitter site to get the permission to use X-Auth For your application.

u should write about your application when u are raising a ticket. Then Twitter team will give u the permission to access X-Auth.

X-Auth allows u to skip the step of Weblogin Authentication/PINCode Authentication.

Just out of curiosity, how DO you raise a ticket on the Twitter site? I've looked everywhere. I've posted on the site, but it's been over a week and no answer.

Cheers

Why not use the more complete and cleaner OAuth. Eventually, this
will be a Twitter requirement.

Hi all, 

I have used the older version of Twitter library developed by Matt Gemmell. The API uses OAuth. But I encounter a problem that Twitter integration in my iOS app doesn't work in OS4.1. That's why I wanna try with the new version that uses XAuth.

Thanks,

Solyda
