Overview

As one of the simplest, most popular, and most powerful social networking platforms existing today, Twitter boasts a programming API that allows you to build websites and applications (both desktop and mobile) for reading and posting to Twitter, finding other Twitterers, aggregating Twitter content, and other uses. This timely resource shows skilled .NET developers how to take Twitter beyond a simple message service and build exciting, useful, and profitable applications using C# and .NET 3.5.

You'll begin with a look at RESTful services and examine how to structure your queries, handle asynchronous operations, use headers, and post binary data. The author then explains the use of Twitter in push-based scenarios and shows you how to use WCF Polling Duplex, the gnip.com service, and Twitter's Streaming API.

You'll learn how to authenticate with the OAuth specification for web and Windows applications. Plus, you'll take an in-depth look at TweetSharp, a .NET library for developing Twitter applications. Examples in Windows Forms, ASP.NET, Silverlight, and Windows Azure help you learn to make the most of Twitter and build your own applications for this exciting new platform.
