Our app stores the twitter username and password in a database
(switching to OAUTH soon) so it can then do specific scheduled task,
such as taking an RSS feed and making them into Tweets, do specific
searches, check for new followers, etc.. Also when you log into our
app it shows you your home_timeline and has the ability to for your
mentions. It takes the stored username and password and sends the
information via CURL to the twitter API. So times they are
authenticated and some times they are not.

Everything was working perfectly fine until a few weeks ago.
