authentication problem

when I post the following url into restclient


(with USERNAME replaced with my username, and MYTOKEN replaced with the "consumer secret" I got from the "api keys" link on this site), I get the following error:


WWW-Authenticate: Bearer error='invalid_token',error_description='Invalid token: [token removed for message post]',specificCause=' Invalid token: [token removed for message post]',


Any clue as to what's going wrong?

Hi SamH882,


The consumer secret is different than the access token.  You use the secret and API Key to obtain a token.
