So that’s one information-source less to deal with. Twitter This has been my usage of Twitter: Ignore the hype

In my previous post, I described how to authenticate your Windows Phone app to Twitter, without using TweetSharp. Now that we’re set up, posting a status to Twitter is fairly easy (see below, after code for posting photo). But posting a photo is a little more challenging. Once again, we’ll be using the Hammock library by Daniel Crenna.First, we need to set a few things up: var twitterUser = new TwitterUserQuery().Get(); _credentials = new OAuthCredentials { Type = OAuthType.ProtectedResource, SignatureMethod

However, I found it doesn’t really work for Windows Phone, in particular because the GetRequestToken method is missing. This is not to say the work Daniel Crenna is bad, far from it. But for a Windows Phone app I’m developing I needed to authenticate with Twitter. And finally, TweetSharp is no
