Migrate Twitter API from Version 1 to 1.1

My twitter feed response is started showing below message when i was tried to access users_timeline using this URL https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.xml?include_entities=true&include_rts=true&screen_name=karthi0110&count=1

“The Twitter REST API v1 is no longer active. Please migrate to API v1.1. https://dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1.1/overview.”

I have tried by replacing version 1 to 1.1 in the request URL https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/user_timeline.xml?include_entities=true&include_rts=true&screen_name=karthi0110&count=1 it shown “Bad Authentication data” error. So after some research i have fixed it in a proper way.

If you are getting this error just migrate it to version 1.1 by following below steps.

Process is easy Create App -> Get access codes -> Configure -> Start displaying your feed

Go to https://dev.twitter.com/apps/new and fill the form fields like Name, Description, Website.. in-order to create your app. Now agree the rules, fill captcha and click ‘Create your Twitter application’.

If you have successfully created your app, you will find a button ‘Create my access token’ in ‘Your access token’ section. Just click that button to create your app access token.

Once you have generated your access token we are ready to fetch our twitter feed. Download the files from https://github.com/themattharris/tmhOAuth.

Now create a file twitter_feed.php, and put the following code and put your access/customer codes.

require 'tmhOAuth.php';

$tmhOAuth = new tmhOAuth(array(
'consumer_key' => 'CONSUMER_KEY',
'consumer_secret' => 'CONSUMER_SECRET',
'user_token' => 'ACCESS_TOKEN',
'user_secret' => 'USER_SECRET',

$code = $tmhOAuth->request('GET', $tmhOAuth->url('1.1/statuses/user_timeline'), array('screen_name' => 'karthi0110','count'=>1));
$response = $tmhOAuth->response;
