Twitter has recently changed their authentication method, so that they only support oauth now. This has recently broken the twitter feed on redgloo. The reasoning behind oauth is to allow service A to access service B's information on behalf users to embed it into service A.
This is not exactly what we do here, and although we definitely can use oauth, it seems a little convoluted just to receive what effectively is an rss feed on the front page. Therefore I decided to look at the rss route. Twitter however is not really helpful when it comes to rss feeds of tweets from a user's friends. They want you to authenticate the access to the feed using basic authentication, which they have removed from their site, thus no authentication is provided!
Not sure if I should spend the time - which I don't really have - on oauth, or take the easy option and wait until they fix their rss auth problem...
