oAuth for Twitter search API 1.1


  • Hi Miguel

    I'm trying to follow your oAuth instructions for a Twitter search (API 1.1) without any success.


    When you say "you can sign in", do you mean in Excel go to Data Explorer / Data Source Settings / Edit Credential / Basic ?

    Or should I log on to their website using IE?

    I don't follow.

    Also what do you mean by "the OAuth token"? Where will it be "stored in your machine"?

    I have created an account and an application on dev.twitter.com. It seems to suggest I should use a "Consumer key" or "Consumer secret"? Where would I use those for Excel Data Explorer? I tried both in the Credentials / Web API / Key field - I got the error "The credentials provided are invalid"

    Apologies for all the questions I am a SQL/reporting guy, not a web dev.
