With this script step you can perform the actual work by sending requests to the web service, for example post a tweet on Twitter.
You need to have gotten credentials first with the two authorization functions TURL_GetAuthorizationURL and TURL_SendAuthorizationPIN (or Send Authorization PIN URL script step).

The plug-in currently only supports the OAuth 1.0A Authorization protocol.


# This script will post a tweet on Twitter. 
# Get the text to tweet in a variable:
Set Variable [ $TweetText ; this::TweetText ]
# Set up the other variables:
Set Variable [ $URL ; "" ]
# Use the credentials stored in two global fields:
Set Variable [ $oauth_token ; this::gOAuth_token ]
Set Variable [ $oauth_token_secret ; this::gOAuth_token_secret ]
# Build the request to tweet (= a status update in the API):
# NOTE: the text of the tweet must be URL Encoded.
Set Variable [ $request ; "status=" & TURL_ToURLEncoded ( "-Unused" ; this::TweetText ) ]
# Now send the tweet to Twitter, using the POST method, and the oauth credentials.
Send Authorized Request URL [ Select ; $Result ; "-OAuthProtocol" ; "POST" ; 
		$URL ; $oauth_token ; $oauth_token_secret ; $request ]
Set Field [ this::Received text ; $Result ]
