How to Use Online IDs in Windows Phone Apps
Nick Randolph at BuildMobile has authored four comprehensive posts with code snippets about using several authentication models in Windows Phone apps.

- Several social networking platforms like Twitter use OAuth 1 which is much more involved. Once the user has been authenticated, the application will have an Access Token which is used to access any of the Twitter APIs.
