By the way, the way to get older Tweets was to use the user’s “Timeline”, instead of the search.

Short Memory

Apparently the search feature of the Twitter API only has a seven day history.

So that sucks.

Looks like I’ll be digging up a workaround.

Is the opposite of the Fail Whale the “Win Dolphin”?

Tweets.  I has them.

Hmmm…  It appears that there are only 13 tweets from Palin, even though it says there should be 15.  I guess the search quit halfway through, just like she did.

Anyway, now I just need to grab a whole bunch of these and index them and see what comes out.

Grasp on Reality Established. Carry On.

So, after wasting an hour or more on the “Official” way, I find someone else’s code that does exactly what I need and WORKS the first time.

Huh.  Imagine that.  IT WORKS.  Shocking.

So, I now have an authentication token and am able to continue.

And by “Recenter my emotional state”, I mean this:

They’re redeclaring the same variables throughout the sample, but there’s no indication of a method break.


They put literal strings in a function call where you’re supposed to provide a variable.




Excuse me just a minute here.  I have to recenter my emotional state and channel my frustrations and negative energies into restoring balance in my soul and finding my happy place.

The Extendables

And when your example code relies on extension methods, please make sure that you have the namespace which contains those extension methods references.

I am so ready to take the Baseball Bat of Great Justice and hand out a Beat Down Of Many Angers on these people.

Listen, it’s simple:

  • .Net 3.0 was largely a mistake.  var and extension methods were part of that mistake.  Don’t use var and extension methods all over the place.  If you don’t know the right place to use them, don’t use them at all.
  • THE DOCUMENTATION MUST NOT SUCK.  No documentation is often better than bad documentation.
  • CODE SAMPLES MUST COMPILE.  You have to realize that people are going to copy and paste whatever is on your page and try to compile it.
  • The easiest way to meet the requirements of THE DOCUMENTATION MUST NOT SUCK and CODE SAMPLES MUST COMPILE is to write a sample class, test it, then paste the entire class into your page.

var-y annoying

I want to smack people who use “var” all over the place in their code.  Particularly in their example code.
