Hi there,

I'll echo Jason's comment; by including the Authorization header you've exposed your password, please change it. You included the headers from your request below, but do you by chance have the body of the response available? Many times the error message in the body will give us a pointer to the exact cause.

Unfortunately, I can't help you, but I do want to remind you to change your password now, as the entire twitter dev community has it at this point :)

I am getting a 403 error when I attempt to send a response back to a user who sent a direct message.

I am using Basic Authentication. Below is a verbose dump from my PHP curl script.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong here?
