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 ......

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 ......

Using LINQ to Twitter OAuth with Windows 8
Update (1/19/2013): This doesn't work anymore and there's a better way to perform OAuth with LINQ to Twitter on Windows 8. Please see WinRtAuthorizer–A Better Way to do OAuth with LINQ to Twitter in Windows 8WinRtAuthorizer–A Better Way to do OAuth with LINQ to Twitter in Windows 8.In previous posts, I explained how to use LINQ to Twitter with Windows 8, but the example was a Twitter Search, which didn’t require authentication. Much of the Twitter API requires authentication, so this post will explain ......

Portable Library Tools 2
Funny, after having blogged today about not using Portable Libraries because of lack of features the BCL team released Portable Library Tools 2 Beta. Since IQueryable is supported too I’ll have to take another look for LINQ to Twitter. @JoeMayo ......

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 ......
