IDEA - Automated posts to twitter
« on: September 05, 2010, 02:55:53 PM »
Twitter has recently started requiring an automated program to go through an authorization process in
order to post to a user's account.  None of the past programs I have work now.  I would like to put some
posts in a notepad file and have them automatically posted to Twitter with a specific time interval between posting the tweets.  The program would have to be able to pass Twitter's authorization in order to post.
Would need to be able to change the Twitter account names as I have more than one Twitter account.
Would like the code to be in auto hotkey as maybe then I could change it if I needed to.  Have just started
trying to learn auto hotkey and don't know how to do this.
Thanks for any help.

Thanks for your input.  I'm a member of SocialOomph.  I would like a desktop program that resides on my computer and that I run.

From what I understood of the e-mail Twitter sent out about the new authentication process, you just need to wait for the developers of your current desktop programs to update to the new authentication method and then they should work fine.

In that same vein, maybe you should check that you have the latest versions of your desktop applications you're using. They might already have new versions out which are compatible with the changes.

The one developer has abandoned his product.  The other has said he's not going to change it.
