Hey all - I've been awake for about 6 hours longer than I had planned attempting to work on this project. Essentially what I was trying to do was integrate the twitter API into my MUD so certain events could be tweeted automatically from the game; it took me about 30 minutes to figure out curl with the basic auth only to discover twitter disabled this method. So I signed up, got my tokens and now I have no flippin clue how to authenticate them using curl. I've seen many php examples but they all seem very messy and I cannot seem to find anything for C. Has anyone messed around with this before?

This sounds like a neat idea, though I must admit I haven't played with it. Twitter did have a link to this open source library that may help you with authentication:



This may also be helpful, though it says it is C++ based:
