I am trying to do a project where I use POST and GET html requests to do something cool on the internet. I am using an alpha version of a Redpine signals board (they gave use exclusive access for a class at my university).
My problem is I don't really know much about html requests.
Is it possible to do something simple like post a twitter status using only POST and/or GET?
Best How To :
Yes, you can do that. Many web services offer an API that lets you interact with the service via http. Twitter is one of these services; check out their REST api documentation: https://dev.twitter.com/rest/public
Here's the endpoint to POST an update: https://dev.twitter.com/rest/reference/post/statuses/update
I'd guess the trickiest thing for you will be figuring out the auth... start here: https://dev.twitter.com/oauth/overview/introduction
