undefined method `options' for #<EventMachine::HttpClien

Hi , I am writing a rake task to consume twitter stream API. The task
contains the following code:

consumer = OAuth::Consumer.new(CONSUMER_KEY, CONSUMER_SECRET, :site =>
http://twitter.com’)
access_token =
OAuth::AccessToken.new(consumer,ACCESS_TOKEN,ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET)
oauth_params = {:consumer => consumer, :token => access_token}
EventMachine.run do
          # now, let’s subscribe to twitter site stream
          # check informaiton on twitter site
         http =
EventMachine::HttpRequest.new(‘http://stream.twitter.com/1/statuses/sample.json’).get
          oauth_helper = OAuth::Client::Helper.new(http, oauth_params)
         http.options[:head] = (http.options[:head] ||
{}).merge!({“Authorization” => oauth_helper.header})
    http.callback {
      p http.response

      EventMachine.stop
   }

The rake gets aborted with the following error:
undefined method `options' for #<EventMachine::HttpClient:0x42cf9f0>
D:/ROR/LOCAL_TWEETS/lib/tasks/twitter.rake:40:in `block in <top
(required)>'
D:/Ruby192/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/eventmachine-1.0.0.beta.4.1-x86-mingw32/lib/
eventmachine.rb:179:in `call'

I am working on Windows 7, x64, and the gems I use are
em-http-request (1.0.0)
oauth (0.4.5)
eventmachine (1.0.0.beta.4.1)

Any ideas on how to resolve this ??

My eventMachine/oath/em-http-request gem combination seems to not work
(pl see the code and error attached). Can anyone help me to resolve
this?

Thanks in advance!

Not sure what you are trying to accomplish here, I'm not familiar with OAuth.
A couple of points. The htpp = ....get statements makes the request, no point
in altering the GET request after the fact. Perhaps you want something like:

url = '....
headers = {'Authorization' => oauth_helper.header}
http = EventMachine::HttpRequest.new(url, :head => headers).get
http.callback {
  p http.response
  EventMachine.stop
}
