maisha maisha> use Twitter use ok
App::Maisha::Plugin::Twitter is the gateway for Maisha to access the Twitter API.
Login to the service. See Authentication below.
The API methods are used to interface to with the Twitter API.
On 31st August 2010, Twitter disabled Basic Authentication to access their API. Instead they have introduce the OAuth method of authrntication, which now requires application developers to request the user to authenticate themselves and provide a PIN (Personal Identification Number) to allow the application to retrieve access tokens.
With this new method of authentication, the application will provide a URL, which the user needs to cut-n-paste into a browser to logging in to the service, using your regular username/password, then 'Allow' Maisha to access your account. This will then allow Maisha to post to your account. You will then be given a PIN, which should then be entered at the prompt on the Maisha command line.
Once you have completed authentication, the application will then store your access tokens permanently under your profile on your computer. Then when you next use the application it will retrieve these access tokens automatically and you will no longer need to register the application.
For further information regarding the commands and configuration, please see the 'maisha' script included with this distribution.
