Twitter API ME 1.4: New release!!!

Hi all,

I would like to inform that Twitter API ME 1.4 has just been released. This new version comes with new features and the correction of a bug that was preventing it to work on Blackberry devices. So Blackberry developers, you all are now welcome back to Twitter API ME.

The new features available on version 1.4 are:
  • Single Access Token auth
  • Geo-located tweets
  • Friends/Followers list
  • Update user profile
See below how easy is to use Single Access token and send a geo-located tweet.

Token = new Token("token_access", "token_secret");
Credential c =
  new Credential("usrnm", "conKey", "conSec", token);
UserAccountManager m =
  UserAccountManager.getInstance(c);
if (m.verifyCredential()) {
  GeoLocation l = new GeoLocation("+37.5", "+26.7");
  Tweet t = new Tweet(Geo-located tweet.", l);
  TweetER ter = TweetER.getInstance(m);
  t = ter.post(t);
}

Easy, huh?

For further information on Twitter API ME, please visit us at www.twitterapime.com.

See you in the next post...

Hi,

In order to use the API in a blackberry app, do I have to create a separate library app with the .jar file, or is there any other way to add the jar file to the BlackBerry Application Project.

Thanks in advance,
Bandi

You do not need to do this. Just add the jar file as a lib into your project.

I managed to import the jar. Everything works fine, until I try to post a tweet. It keeps throwing me "Invalid / Expired Token". Does this has something to do with Twitter's change to OAuth?

Thanks in advance,
Bandi

By chance, are you caching any token or something? If so, please do not do that. The only case you can keep a token is when you are using Single Token access auth, which you get from Twitter's website.

You do not need those lines:

XAuthSigner xc = new XAuthSigner(TWITTER_CONSUMER_KEY, TWITTER_CONSUMER_SECRET);
xc.sign(new HttpRequest("http://api.twitter.com"), tok);

I really do not know where guys came with this from? I have not mentined anything of it in my examples. :)

Also pay attention on that tweet's content. You can't send two tweets with same text. Twitter ignores that.

The rest seems ok!

Hi,

As far as I know, receive updates via e-mail is not supported by Blogspot. On the other hand, there are other means to subribe to this blog in order to receive updates. In the side bar, there is a section called "Subscribe To". Check whether onde of those means fit for you.

Thanks for following us.

Single Access Token auth work for only 1 Twitter ID.
I want to use in my Blackberry application for posting status to different ID.
