I am working through chapter 3 and when I ran the app code as in the book, it told me to use the 1.1 twitter API. The URL https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/user_timeline.json allowed me to get past that but it then asked for authentication. Although I have found the documentation and a couple of libraries that would allow me to implement it, I am wondering what the authors propose as a solution.

Hey Errol - great question. I actually just ran into this issue yesterday - basically, if you continue onwards, the authors address the Twitter authentication issue in a “Joe asks” purple section, where it notes to add an Account.h entity which takes care of whole process.

Good it works without having to change the API. A pity that it wasn’t made clear in the text that the upgrade to the twitter API was due. Still the sidebar does make it work.
