Tutorial :Integrate Twitter in a website



Question:

I am trying to get a website to connect to a Twitter account so that I can display the tweets on my website. I can get the application to work when you connect via the OAuth authentication and it asks if I want to allow the application.

What I want to do, is because it's my own Twitter account, I want to be able to login without having to do this every time. I want the website to send my credentials across so that the user just sees the page, and can view the tweets. Is this possible?


Solution:1

If your account is not protected, you can use the public timeline like:

http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/mytwittername.json?callback=twitterCallback2&count=4  

this will give you the last 4 tweets, there are other ways to retrieve your tweets whithout authentication


Solution:2

I have figured this out. I created a new class that inherits the IConsumerTokenManager interface. Then, the only properties I needed to change were ConsumerKey, ConsumerSecret and GetTokenSecret (as shown below).

#region Namespaces  using System;  using System.Collections.Generic;  using System.Linq;  using System.Web;  using DotNetOpenAuth.OAuth.ChannelElements;  using DotNetOpenAuth.OAuth.Messages;
