i wrote a simple ruby script and posted it at
http://mehack.com/uploading-a-background-image-to-twitter-using (which may
be having DNS issues at the moment, and if so, just go see the code directly
at http://gist.github.com/279650) -- that code demonstrates how to construct
the oauth signature and upload a background image to Twitter. i tested it
on my test account, and it seems to work well.
while that code is written in ruby, i tried to take care to write it clearly
enough so that even non-ruby programmers should be able to follow it. let
me know if there are any questions!
ps. as yusuke mentioned earlier on this thread, Twitter4J (
http://yusuke.homeip.net/twitter4j/en/index.html) has support for setting
background images via OAuth. FWIW, that library is -very- clearly written,
and should be relatively easy for programmers (especially those who are
attempting to construct their own OAuth signatures) to follow.
