Twitter API in C#

I used C# and WCF, but I could have just as easily used an ASMX web service. This code is fairly simple.

Note: This code will not run as listed. You have to have a password. This code has that as a shared variable, but I'm not showing that to you, seriously. I hope that this is of some help to you.

public void SubmitUserStatus(string username, string tweet)
// encode the username/password
string user = Convert.ToBase64String(System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(username + ":" + password));
// determine what we want to upload as a status
byte[] bytes = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes("status=" + tweet);
// connect with the update page
HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("");
// set the method to POST
request.Method = "POST";
// thanks to argodev for this recent change!
request.ServicePoint.Expect100Continue = false;
// set the authorisation levels
request.Headers.Add("Authorization", "Basic " + user);
request.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded";
// set the length of the content
request.ContentLength = bytes.Length;
// set up the stream
Stream reqStream = request.GetRequestStream();
// write to the stream
reqStream.Write(bytes, 0, bytes.Length);
// close the stream
