I created a twitter account, and a simple cron job that tweets every certain
period of time.

I fear my authentication mechanism might be affected by tonight's deadline,
is it? I use the following code to send twitter the tweet (the code that is
executed in the cron job)

 * Tweets a new status given a statues, username, and password
 * @param status Status to tweet
 * @param username Username of account to post through
 * @param password Password of account to post through
 * @return void
function tweet($status = 'Hello World', $username, $password) {
$status = urlencode(stripslashes(urldecode($status)));
$curl = curl_init();
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_URL, 'http://www.twitter.com/statuses/update.xml'
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, 2);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, "status=$status");
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "$username:$password");
