update my own twitter account with PHP

Posted on 2011-02-28

I've found this script :

But it is based on a multiple user environment. And for that reason it forces the user to authenticate during the session.

Now I'd like to be able to post/update my own account without having to push an extra button. I would like to post a new news item on our soccer club website and update with the same action the twitter account of the soccer club.

I found out that after registration of my "application" I've got a "Access Token (oauth_token)"  and a "Access Token Secret (oauth_token_secret)" can these be used in this code to automate the authentication process?

And do I still have to use the call back URL?

What should be changed in what file to get this working? Or even better do you have working sample of a similar way of posting?
