Posting to Twitter from Your Web Site

Most content management systems and blogging platforms have a Twitter plug-in available nowadays that allows you to automatically submit tweets when you update a page or post a news item. However, for those of us that aren’t using packaged systems, we have to look elsewhere for solutions to post updates to Twitter.

The other day, while making some changes to the news posting script we use at work, I decided that we should post our news updates on Twitter when we post them to the Web site. As such, I started reviewing the Twitter API. Thankfully, Twitter has a good resource on libraries you can use to make your life easier (after all, there’s no point in reinventing the wheel if you don’t have to).
