Tweet with media proxy behavior

Apr 16, 2015 at 8:48 PM
Hi,

While tweeting with media behind a proxy, it seems like twitter can still see our real ip. It is acceptable that twitter can do it while we are tweeting through their web page, since they are using javascript to upload photos. But I am pretty sure that twitter knows my real ip while I am using tweetinvi. My country blocked twitter for 1 day because of a security issue and that duration I could not post photos. I could do all other stuff but not photos. My proxy provider said that, I should use https, instead of http to deal with this, but they are assuming that I am using the twitter web page. If twitter can really see my real ip while uploading photos, I am already dead :) Any ideas about this behavior?

Hi,

Well you are right, with the current WebLogic of Tweetinvi, the proxy is not set for MultiPart WebRequest which are the one required for image upload.

I cannot implement this feature for the coming release (at least I don't think so for now). But I have added it to Tweetinvi 0.9.8.0.
I will give you some news if I moved it to the 0.9.7.0 release.

Thank you for reporting this issue.
Cheers,
