This won't work with a normal AJAX call (because of Access-Control-Allow-Origin) and requires JSONP.

Yes, this will only work in platforms not bound by same-origin, such as Titanium Desktop, Adobe AIR and webOS.

@Ridermansb

How would the implementation using JSONP?

@funkatron
Owner

pretty sure Twitter oAuth does not support JSONP responses. YMMV.

@Ridermansb

Some examples using no-PIN mode ?

I read this article but it seemed very confusing.

@funkatron

Sorry, I'd have to suggest looking at the Twitter docs – I don't have time to write up more examples for you.

@Ridermansb

No problem, I search the Twitter docs.
Anyway, thanks for the help.
