O you are Auth-ful…

… or, how Twitter’s changes broke my nice little perl script.

The script for queuing tweets still works, but they all disappear into the void rather than getting tweeted, now that Twitter only allows external applications to connect using OAuth.

I’ve found this handy little article here that seems to suggest that it’s easy enough to do using existing modules from CPAN.

Now all I need is a set of round tuits, and we should be back in business again. I’ve got some ideas for other stuff to tweet, once I get it all working again…
