I am attempting to set up a ColdFusion script to do auto updates to
Twitter when a new article is posted to our CMS. I have been having
trouble getting the request token and keep getting the Failed to
validate oauth signature and token error message when making
attempts.

Here is my updated request string.
POST&https%3A%2F%2Fapi.twitter.com%2Foauth
%2Frequest_token&oauth_consumer_key%3DXXXXXXXXXXXXX%26oauth_nonce
%3D430489.541778%26oauth_signature_method%3DHMAC
%2DSHA1%26oauth_timestamp%3D1297274801%26oauth_version%3D1.0

Here is the error returned.
Failed to validate oauth signature and token

Here is the return header.
