Twitter is turning off Basic Authentication soon, and switching to the
three-party authorization protocol.
I have a few simple command-line twitter clients that I use when
I'm on my antique H19 terminal instead of a pee cee, and those
programs would stop working unless I updated them to use OAuth.
But there was no simple command-line oriented OAuth request
signer written in plain old C.
So, I wrote one.
There's both a command-line version and a C function.
