    The API you are using seems to be more Twitter specific rather than Symbian, hence would suggest you to check Twitter forums.

    Re: OAuth in Twitter

    OAuth is an authentication protocol that allows users to approve application to act on their behalf without sharing their password

    AFAIK OAuth is an Open Protocol and is not a part of HTTP protocol. So there is no specific API supporting this in Symbian. May be future versions might have some. As of now you will have to try implementing it. Unless someone in the forum who has implemented it helps you out.

    It might not depend on your application but on twitter application that you want to embedded.

    AFAIK there are no ready solutions provided by Twitter apart from the API's. And that is the better as it lets you customize the look and feel according to your requirements.

    Re: OAuth in Twitter

    Hi all .. i am also trying to implement OAuth for twitter. I found a library written in "C" called liboauth. This library uses Curl methods from libcurl to implement the OAUTH protocol. Is using Curl library is good enough to continue or should i write my own dll by removing curl part ?.. Please suggest or advice me in this regard ..

    thanks in advance.
    Regards,
