consumer key and secret lengths

Is the consumer key always 100 characters in length, and the consumer secret always 40 characters? Any and all guidelines helpful while implementing a little QA into a setup routine.

  • Hi Phil,

    The consumer key's length varies and it is safe to allocate at least 150 characters
    because we may change the key's format later. For consumer secret, currently its length
    is 40 characters though this may change as well. For the time being, 150/40 is OK.
