I have an old erlang twitter client (using oauth) that used to work. When I get to the office I’ll see if it still works (twitter change their api regularly) & if so might be able to help.

It began as a fork of twerl:

I started out using the erlang-oauth lib on github (https://github.com/tim/erlang-oauth) to generate a valid oauth 1.0 signature, but then Twitter authentication failed and I did my own oauth signing function. My function produced the exact same result as erlang-oauth though (go figure!), so the signature itself is probably not an issue. Maybe I'm not getting the parameters right, or the actual request.
