Hi there!

I discovered that the upload_token example in the README is broken. It says to use the following parameters to the method:

:title => "title", :description => "description", :category => "People", :tags => ["test"]

This results in a somewhat unilluminating error message:

NoMethodError: undefined methodjoin' for nil:NilClass`

After scratching my head a bit, I discovered that there's no :tags option -- it should be called :keywords.

Here are some possible solutions:

  1. If :keywords isn't supplied, use :tags... because it's just less typing!
  2. Check that all the required options are there before trying to use them, and if not, raise a more informative exception.
  3. Fix the README and hope nobody mistypes their options by accident. :)
