I think I set up everything right at Twitter and in the config.php but when I try a test tweet I get a 404.
Any clue what I've set up wrong?

Many thanks in advance.

    Hey Brendan,

    Looks like there's something with the setup of your server. If you
    strip out the URL it doesn't give the 404. The "http://" string in
    there seems to set it off somehow.

    And unfortunately when it does go through it has problems talking to
    Twitter. Do you know if you have cURL set up on your server?

    I just had my host enable cURL but it still doesn't seem to work.

    Sorry Brendan, no ideas. If all ofyour Twitter credentials are correct
    then here's something in the configuration of your server that's not
    letting you talk to Twitter. Generally speaking that's been a cURL
    issue, but with that off the table I'm at a bit of a loss.

    Done resolved it. I had hostgator support take a look at the server and they "whitelisted" the page. Still didn't work though, which is when I realized I had skipped the instruction to point the Callback URL to "callback.php". Guess I went to fast with the tutorial.

    Thanks for the help! Great apps.

    Jesse -
    Love this app. I've got it working perfectly on one domain, but I tried to install it on another website and I keep getting a 404 error.
    I assume it's a server issue on my part, but I've been pulling out my hair trying to figure it out!
