I have a script that runs on a schedule that checks to see if there is anything "Twitter worthy" on a web page and if there is it updates the status of a Twitter account. This script has not been working since Twitter changed their authentication methods for the API.
I started looking through examples of code using the new OAuth methods. All of them mention that I have to register my application with Twitter. I go to the Twitter page to do this, but I think I'm going to have problems with all of the URL's requested since this script resides on my company's intranet.
I don't understand why I have to register an application if all I'm trying to do is perform an automated status update. That should just be basic functionality of the API.
Any advice or code examples would be much appreciated.
