 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Looking at the twitter client page on the site, prior to the code is the message is:

"This example doesn't work anymore because the Twitter authentication mode is now different and not compatible with Arduino libraries."

I was wonder if i) the libraries will be updated ii) there are any resources or any code being generated to swap out and handle the Oauth twitter API with the current examples iii) any resources you could point me towards

I've searched but most seem a little beyond my scope.

I was really into some of the twitter-controlled projects I'd seen, but now my project seems dead in the water.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Twitter requires a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connection (https rather than http). The Arduino ethernet and wifi libraries do not support that protocol. I think it is a matter of memory. The larger devices that Arduino has in the works may have enough to do that eventually.

Or, you can use the  RFXduino gateway system which allows SSL connections from Arduinos. Even has a "Send a tweet to Twitter via https" routine already built-in to the library (see doc pages for code snippets.)

WiFi from an Arduino is actually easy, as well as inexpensive, if you take the right approach.

WiFi shields/Yun too expensive? Embeddedcoolness.com is now selling the RFXduino nRF24L01+ <-> TCP/IP Linux gateway: Simpler, more affordable, and even more powerful wireless Internet connectivity for *all* your Arduino projects! (nRF24L01+ shield and dev board kits available too.)
