I recently installed twurl ( https://github.com/marcel/twurl ) and am using it for some testing. Unfortunately the application logs as having sent the tweets, but none get to the twitter account they’re aimed at. twurl uses a pretty standard CLI which looks like this :
/usr/local/bin/twurl -d "status=d @tethra test" /1/statuses/update.xml
Which is fine by commandline, but doesn’t work for the app that is calling the exact same line.
Pitfalls I’ve definitely avoided:
- we’ve authed to twitter for the right user (su’d in and checked, works fine when done manually).
- the credentials of the app are correct (again, works fine when using twurl manually)
- the settings of the twitter app are correct (set to read/write direct messages etc)
I can provide any specific pieces of information anyone might need for extra context but for now that’s about all I can think of, context wise, but my main question is: have I missed something? Does twurl need something particular to work if it isn’t being called from somewhere it’ll have a .profile?
