In this section, you will learn how to update profile of the user using Twiiter4j.

For authenticating user, we need OAuth authorization scheme of Twitter API. Twitter4j Java library have this OAuth support.

Please follow the below steps to get Twitter OAuth support :

STEP-1 : For this you need to register your application at  http://twitter.com/oauth_clients/new  . Please set the Default Access type to Read, Write, & Direct Messages . This will provide access to read & write tweet/status and also provide facility to send direct messages.

STEP-2 :After registering your application you will get the following things :

  • Consumer key              XXXXXXXXXXXX
  • Consumer secret          XXXXXXXXXXXX
  • Request token URL     XXXXXXXXXXXX
  • Authorize URL            XXXXXXXXXXXX 
  • Access token URL      XXXXXXXXXXXX
  • Callback URL             XXXXXXXXXXXX
  • Access token              XXXXXXXXXXXX
  • Access token secret    XXXXXXXXXXXX
  • Access level Read       XXXXXXXXXXXX

NOTE : Please note down the keys before closing page after application registration and also don't share these keys with anyone.


Place the keys which you got after registration by replacing the square [] brackets .Code is given below :
