Post This now tweets


I have been developing a Facebook app while studying about Facebook API. The one I am developing, Post This, is an app that allows users to post status updates. Last week, I had finished my first working prototype. It is my plan to add features to it, like posting to Twitter, Google Buzz and others more in the future.

This week I focused on the code for posting status updates in Twitter. I already have basic knowledge of the Twitter API so I thought it would be easier. However, this has not been the case in real life. It took me a of retries and recoding. There were even times it was working in my account and not on other's. (Maybe I should blog about that experience in a future post)

All these proved worthy because It now works. My Facebook app can now post in the Facebook wall and/or in Twitter.
