Hi,

When you do authentication, you must authenticate with the account of the person who you want to perform the update for.  If during the OAuth authentication process, you sign into Twitter as yourself, the update will be performed on your account.

Is that what you're asking?

here is my  code :

           if (credentials.ConsumerKey == null || credentials.ConsumerSecret == null)
            {
                credentials.ConsumerKey = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["twitterConsumerKey"];
                credentials.ConsumerSecret = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["twitterConsumerSecret"];
            }

            auth = new MvcAuthorizer { Credentials = credentials };

            auth.CompleteAuthorization(Request.Url);

            if (!auth.IsAuthorized)
            {
                Uri specialUri = new Uri(Request.Url.ToString());
                return auth.BeginAuthorization(specialUri);
            }

            twitterCtx = new TwitterContext(auth);

            twitterCtx.UpdateStatus("Message " + DateTime.Now.ToString());

This code sends the message to all my followers
I will either send the message to a specific person (not private message) post a tweet

It sounds like you want to do a reply, which would work like this:

twitterCtx.UpdateStatus("@JoeMayo Message " + DateTime.Now.ToString());

In this code, you would replace "@JoeMayo" with the name of the person you want to reply to.

I tried but does not work (the message is sent to all my followers)


I tried with this method (http://linqtotwitter.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Updating%20Statuses) but does not give anything

Hi,

Do you have the URL of a test tweet I can look at?
