Twitter from ASP.NET Application

This post will throw a light on how we can update our status on Twitter from an application.

The task is pretty simple as we have libraries already available on the net.

I will be using twitterizer dll to perform the task.

The following are the steps to be followed:

  1. Download the twitterizer dll from here.
  2. Add the reference to the dll in your web application.
  3. Write the code. For example
    Twitter t = new Twitter(UserName, Password);

Following are the methods and the capabilities provided by these methods which are present in the library:

User Methods

  2. Friends
  3. Follow User

Status Methods

  1. User Timeline
  2. Public Timeline
  3. Friends Timeline
  4. Show
  5. Update
  6. Destroy
  7. Replies

  2. Sent From User
