Uploading Multiple Images in Parallel with Async and LINQ to Twitter
The Twitter API recently deprecated the statuses/update_with_media endpoint, which LINQ to Twitter abstracts via a TweetWithMedia method. It’s replaced with a new endpoint, media/upload, and a new parameter to statuses/update, media_ids. The benefit of the new API change is that you can now tweet multiple images. Naturally, LINQ to Twitter supports this capability. However, what’s really interesting is that you can upload multiple images at the same time with Task.WhenAll. This post explains how ......

LINQ to Twitter for Windows 8 Metro Style Apps
In the Developer Preview of Windows 8, Visual Studio 11 conveniently allowed references to .NET 4.0 apps. I had blogged previously on how to use LINQ to Twitter with Windows 8. Subsequently, the Consumer Preview of Windows 8 no longer allowed references to .NET libraries and requires references to Windows 8 Metro Style Application Libraries. I looked at Portable Class Libraries, but that doesn’t work because LINQ to Twitter is an IQueryable LINQ provider, which isn’t supported. So, I redirected my ......

Released LINQ to Twitter v3.0.2
Today, I released LINQ to Twitter v3.0.2. This release takes LINQ to Twitter v3.0 out of beta and into a stable release. The primary features of this release are async commands/queries and Portable Class Library (PCL) support. Supporting Async The async support makes your application more responsive to the user, increases server scalability, and makes coding simpler (especially in technologies like Windows Phone where async is required). Here's an example of how to perform an async query: var tweets ......

Watch LINQ to Twitter On Glass
Glass is Google’s new wearable computer - no doubt you’ve heard about it in the news. What’s cool and new today is that you can now write Glass apps that use LINQ to Twitter. In this article, I’ll show you how. Say What!? That’s right, I said “You can now write Glass apps with LINQ to Twitter”. There might have been a day when the combination of Twitter, LINQ, and a Google device might have been unimaginable, but Xamarin has changed all that. You see, Xamarin lets you write C# apps that deploy to ......

Using LINQ to Twitter with F#
I’m not an F# developer, but I’ve read Robert Pickering’s book, Foundations of F#/Apress, and have played around with the Try F# tutorial. It looks like a nice language and something that I might use one day. I was aware that F# had some type of query capabilities, and had wondered more than once if LINQ to Twitter could work with it. Today, I witnessed a pleasant surprise, when John Tarbox posted an F# example in the LINQ to Twitter Discussion Forum: https://linqtotwitter.codep... ......

LINQ to Twitter Runs On Xamarin.iOS
A couple weeks ago, I posted LINQ to Twitter Runs Xamarin.Android. That was pretty exciting, but so is watching LINQ to Twitter jamming tweets into a UITableView in an iPhone simulator on my Mac, courtesy of Xamarin.iOS hosted in Visual Studio 2013. In this post I’ll show how you can do use LINQ to Twitter in Xamarin.iOS too. Since Xamarin now supports async and Portable Class Libraries (PCL) and LINQ to Twitter is async and PCL, this will work nicely. Note: If you haven’t used the Xamarin tools ......

LINQ to Twitter Runs Xamarin.Android
Yesterday, Microsoft launched Visual Studio 2013 (VS2013), their newest version of their Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Along with this launch was several announcements that included a partnership with Xamarin and lifting of Portable Class Library (PCL) and .NET NuGet library licensing restrictions. In addition to these announcements, Xamarin released Xamarin Studio 4.2 and associated Android and iOS toolsets, which have recently supported async and now have full support for PCL. Given ......

Working with Timelines with LINQ to Twitter
When first working with the Twitter API, I thought that using SinceID would be an effective way to page through timelines. In practice it doesn’t work well for various reasons. To explain why, Twitter published an excellent document that is a must-read for anyone working with timelines: Twitter Documentation: Working with Timelines This post shows how to implement the recommended strategies in that document by using LINQ to Twitter. You should read the document in it’s entirety before moving on because ......
