Twitter client update

In one of my previous post I had mentioned that any twitter client you plan to create should not have the word ‘Twitter’ in its title. This discovery was as part of the process to modify a Twitter client to use OAuth authentication.

A colleague of mine had created a desktop twitter client; however because of the requirement to use oAuth, the client is no longer operational. I have decided to update the code to use OAuth. The twitter client is a java pluging and uses Jtwitter. JTwitter is a java library for Twitter API. The OAuth library recommended by the Jtwitter creators is Signpost (On the Twitter API page Signpost is listed as one of the Java OAuth libraries)

The next step is to make the changes. Subsequent blog posts will discuss my progress.

(Educating myself about Identity and Access Management has lead me to postulate that OAuth is an example of a Federated Sign–On)
