First guesses: your current implementation is incompatible for statuses
containing space characters or non-alphanumeric characters.

You are rawurlencoding your status parameter while building your signature
base string.. which is correct -- except, you should have URL encoded your
status value before-hand, such that you're encoding it again in your
signature base string.

I also can't ascertain in this code where you're actually presenting your
POST body to the request. You'll also want to pass a Content-Type header on
POST requests containing a POST body indicating the disposition of your
content.
