Michael Economy (michaeleconomy) #example authenticates and prints the raw xml for the friend updates.
require 'oauth'
key = BLAH #substitute your keys
secret = BLAH

consumer =, secret, {:site => ""})
request_token = consumer.get_request_token
p request_token.authorize_url

#user needs to go to this url and approve it

access_token = request_token.get_access_token
p access_token.get("/updates/friends.xml").body

Chris (chrisnolanca) | 9 comments I was following the example at in irb which seems to have come out of this post.

I ran into an error (OAuth::VERSION not defined) and it seems that the require "oauth/consumer" should just be require "oauth".

Michael Economy (michaeleconomy) I've put the require in that example, thanks Chris.
