Yet Another .NET Twitter Library…

Simplest authorizing:

var session = OAuth.Authorize("consumer_key", "consumer_secret");
var tokens = OAuth.GetTokens(session, "PINCODE");

Tweeting is very easy:

tokens.Statuses.Update(status => "hello");

We provide the most modern way to use Twitter’s API asynchronously:

var tokenSource = new CancellationTokenSource();
var task = tokens.Statuses.UpdateWithMediaAsync(
    new { status = "Yummy!", media = new FileInfo(@"C:\test.jpg") },
// oh! that was a photo of my dog!!

Go with the Streaming API and LINQ:

var sampleStream = tokens.Streaming.Sample()
    .Select(x => x.Status);
foreach(var status in sampleStream)
    Console.WriteLine("{0}: {1}", status.User.ScreenName, status.Text);

Get fantastic experiences with Rx:

var disposable = tokens.Streaming.FilterAsObservable(track => "tea")
    .Subscribe(x => Console.WriteLine("{0} says about tea: {1}", x.Status.User.ScreenName, x.Status.Text));

await Task.Delay(30 * 1000);

Various types of method overloads:

tokens.Statuses.Update(status => "hello");

tokens.Statuses.Update(new { status = "hello" });

tokens.Statuses.Update(new YourClass("hello"));

tokens.Statuses.Update(status: "hello");

tokens.Statuses.Update(new Dictionary<string, object>()
    {"status", "hello"}

Oh yes why don’t you throw away any StatusUpdateOptions and it kinds???
