Replying to a tweet

Hi Joe,

I can't seem to figure out how to reply to a tweet..

Thanks in advance

You would use one of the UpdateStatus overloads that includes an inReplyToStatusID parameter.  Here's a link for more info:

Thank you for the quick reply.

I already tried that but it is giving me a 403 (forbidden). Permissions for the app (on the website of twitter) have already been set right so this couldn't be the problem.

Any ideas ? 

Thanks in advance

In the downloadable code, there's an example method in the LinqToTwitterDemo project, in the StatusDemos.cs file, named UpdateStatusWithReplyDemo. This works for me.  Please try that demo and see if you still have problems.

Thank you very much Joe.

I managed to make it work with your help.
