     public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
          String CONSUMER_KEY = "<CONSUMER_KEY>";
          String ACCESS_TOKEN = "<ACCESS_TOKEN>";
          // create a consumer object and configure it with the access
          // token and token secret obtained from the service provider
          OAuthConsumer consumer = new JettyOAuthConsumer(CONSUMER_KEY, CONSUMER_SECRET);
          consumer.setTokenWithSecret(ACCESS_TOKEN, ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET);
          // create an HTTP request to a protected resource
          ContentExchange request = new ContentExchange(true) {
          // tell me what kind of response code we got
               protected void onResponseComplete() throws IOException {
                    int status = getResponseStatus();
                    if (status == 200)
                         System.out.println("Successfully connected");
                         System.out.println("Error Code Received: " + status);
                    // print out any response data we get along the stream
                    protected void onResponseContent(Buffer data) {
               // setup the request
               // sign the request
               // send the request
