 Hey guys
I have a button in my application which posts on twitter the song the
user is listening to.
While creating this application i created a demo twitter application
and it was working fine.
But now i changed the consumer key and consumer secret key to the ones
given by the client and now i get
the following error :-

03-18 20:43:57.190: ERROR/in Main.OAuthLogin(7665): 401:Authentication
credentials were missing or incorrect.
03-18 20:43:57.190: ERROR/in Main.OAuthLogin(7665): <?xml
version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
03-18 20:43:57.190: ERROR/in Main.OAuthLogin(7665): <hash>
03-18 20:43:57.190: ERROR/in Main.OAuthLogin(7665):   <request>/oauth/
03-18 20:43:57.190: ERROR/in Main.OAuthLogin(7665):   <error>Desktop
applications only support the oauth_callback value 'oob'</error>
03-18 20:43:57.190: ERROR/in Main.OAuthLogin(7665): </hash>

Does this means that the consumer key or consumer secret key provided
by client are wrong
or that the application that they have made on the twitter is not
meant for sharing through android?? or any other mobile platform?

These sound like questions for forums dedicated to the Twitter API.
