Here is the Classic ASP code (by Ariel Saputra) that my site uses:
function asp_twitter_update(strMsg,strUser,strPass)
        dim oXml,strFlickrUrl
        strFlickrUrl = "http://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml";
        set oXml = Server.CreateObject("Msxml2.ServerXMLHTTP.3.0")
        oXml.Open "POST", strFlickrUrl, false, strUser, strPass
        oXml.setRequestHeader "Content-Type", 
        oXml.Send "status=" & server.URLencode(strMsg)
        asp_twitter_update = oXml.responseText
        Set oXml = nothing
end function

Whenever a visitor to my site posts a new classified ad, the Classic
ASP script automatically, invisibly, seamlessly sends out a tweet
through the site's Twitter account that announces the new ad. Users
need not have a Twitter account of their own and need not know or
understand anything about Twitter, because the tweets are sent without
their having to do anything other than submit their classified ad via
my site's Classic ASP form.

It was so easy to incorporate that bit of code into my form! I would
be grateful for suggestions of how to accomplish the same thing with
Classic ASP and oauth. Actually, to do this for Classic ASP/oauth is
something of a holy grail for those of us who use Classic ASP; as
there are lots of us who are concerned about this issue.
