status post in twitter using OAUTH

im having trouble posting twitter update in mbed, kindly see code below.

 OAuth4Tw oa4t("xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx", // Consumer key
                  "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx", // Consumer secret
                  "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx", // Access token
                  "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"); // Access token secret
    std::string uri = "https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/update.json";
    uri += "?status=";
    uri += OAuth4Tw::url_escape("HelloWorld!");
    std::string postarg;
    std::string postres = oa4t.post(uri.c_str(), postarg);
    printf("uri: %s\n",uri.c_str());
    printf("postarg: %s\n", postarg);
    printf("postres: %s\n", postres.c_str());

and i get this response

uri: https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/update.json?status=HelloWorld%21

my "POST" format is correct, but im the OAUTH is not pushing through..
