I found an issue using the "server" example included in Net::Twitter (oauth_webapp.pl).

Every time someone connected with the server, it re-used the same OAuth token, until they actually signed up with the app. Well, not everyone, once they've gone to the authorization URL, actually signs up, so fairly quickly, the token becomes stale, and then no-one can sign up. My fault for having an app no-one wants to use, perhaps...

It's possible it was just me, but in case anyone else has the same issue, I've posted an updated example at http://tags.linkky.com/oauth_webapp.pl

It exists only to authenticate (I've taken out the "last tweet" subroutine as the cookies are now gone), and to add the access tokens to a MySQL DB - Obviously, it can be updated to include any storage method
