ShareKit 0.2.1 Twitter not working

I added ShareKit to my project and got the following error:

Twitter Send Status Error: {"error":"Could not authenticate with OAuth.","request":"\/1\/statuses\/update.json"}

The following is how I fixed it:
Around line 54 you will see the following code:

self.authorizeURL = [NSURL URLWithString:@"https://api.twitter.com/oauth/authorize"];
self.requestURL = [NSURL URLWithString:@"https://api.twitter.com/oauth/request_token"];
self.accessURL = [NSURL URLWithString:@"https://api.twitter.com/oauth/access_token"];

These need to be changed to https://api.twitter.com/oauth rather than https://twitter.com.

Google Web Fonts

I thought that Google Web Fonts deserved a post here.

I used it in a website yesterday for the first time. I have done tests previously but haven’t actually used it.
Admittedly¬†there aren’t as many fonts on there as TypeKit or Fonts.com but they still have a decent selection.

It is extremely easy to pick your fonts and integrate them into your website. To integrate them you just reference a CSS file on the Google servers and then use a predefined name in the font-family css tag.

Its definitely worth a try if you haven’t already and best of all, its free!

HTML5 Boilerplate

http://html5boilerplate.com/

This template is a great starting point when creating a new website. The template contains jQuery, Modernizr, uses HTML5 tags and CSS3 also.

The template comes with and index.html page which should be base of all your pages in the site, it also has a 404.html page which can easily be changed to fit your sites theme.The template also handles using HTML5 tags in older tags with the aid of the Modernizr script.

Its definitely worth trying it out for any sites you need to create.
