The example project shows how to read from different social networks and update statuses using the built in controller
SLComposeViewController. If you need to post to the API without using this controller, here is how you can do it. Note: I can't speak on Apples guidelines on doing this.
var post = new NSString("Testing Social Framework!"); var twitterRequest = SLRequest.Create(SLServiceKind.Twitter, SLRequestMethod.Post, NSUrl.FromString("https://upload.twitter.com/1/statuses/update_with_media.json"), NSDictionary.FromObjectAndKey(post, new NSString("status")));
Here we have created the basic request to post a tweet using the
update_with_media API which is meant for tweeting images, etc. Next, we add the image to the request.
var image = UIImage.FromFile("monkey.png"); twitterRequest.AddMultipartData(image.AsPNG(),"media","image/png","monkey.png");
Now all you have left to do is add the account to the request and then call
PerformRequest(...). See the completed method here.
