i did this plugin for a project which allows to auth, post tweets and search.
Its based on tweetsharp.
However i didn’t find the time yet to clean it up and seperate it in different parts (auth, post, search etc.).
So for now its one large ugly plugin.
You should be able to easily post tweets with it however, without the need to build the json stuff yourself.
go to the ‘API Keys’ tab and copy the API key and API secret
paste the API key and API secret to the ‘Consumer Key’ and ‘Consumer Secret’ inlets of the Twitter plugin in vvvv and bang the ‘Ath App’ inlet
go to the twitter application settings again, refresh browser and check if you reveived an Access token and Access token secret. copy those two and paste them in the according inlets of the twitter plugin. bang ‘Verify Token’
both outlets ‘Is Athued’ and ‘Is Logged In’ of the twitter plugin should be active now. if not repeat steps 4 + 5
now you can use all twitter functions witht the plugin like search and send tweets and post images.
Added to search / tweets: profile pictures and embedded images.
Still no time to break it up in more parts / cleanup. Think when im not flooded with projects i’ll update the whole thing so it outputs json stuff instead, since the tweetsharp is deprecated.
What if I don’t need or want to search anything? In fact, I just need to get the status updates from one single user who may _or may not_use a specific hashtag.
I am now looking at some many lines of OAuth Signing Results but can’t see how those relate to what the (great!) plugin enables me to do. Or how I can construct something to eventually end up with an XML.
There’s the suggestion of Drupal in another thread but - for reasons - I can’t use a middleman-database solution.
edit: Nevermind & solution was outside of the plugin.
Twitter -> Parse to RSS -> XML.
