Oh, and while I think of it - if you just need the access token to make calls as your app (i.e. it's some kind of bot) then you don't even need to do that - just go to http://dev.twitter.com/apps, view your app and select "my access token" on the right. This will give you the access keys you need without doing the 3 step OAuth dance.
Just use these to sign your requests and you'll be sweet. -- Twitter developer documentation and resources: http://dev.twitter.com/doc API updates via Twitter: http://twitter.com/twitterapi Issues/Enhancements Tracker: http://code.google.com/p/twitter-api/issues/list Change your membership to this group: http://groups.google.com/group/twitter-development-talk
