I need some help. I used rss-synd.tcl to relay tweets from my twitter account to my chat room, about two weeks ago it stopped working even though I haven't changed anything.

How can I get it to work again?

Code:
   set rss(football) {
      "url"         "https://Football_Qnet:password@twitter.com/statuses/friends_timeline.rss"
      "channels"      "#football"
      "database"      "./scripts/twitter.db"
      "output"      "(\00304Tweet\003) @@item!title@@ "
      "trigger"      "!check"
   }


[10:25:24] <football> [08:25] RSS HTTP Error: https://twitter.com/statuses/friends_timeline.rss (HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized)

Exactly. You _CANNOT_ use basic auth with protected twitter resources anymore. It died September 1st. See here -> http://dev.twitter.com/pages/basic_auth_shutdown

Only public profiles can be viewed without OAuth, to view your friends, or mentions, or home timelines, or any other protected resource, you _MUST_ be using an OAuth client.

I explained this at the url above. I suggest people use my twitter script for the moment to spill your friends timelines to channel. It works exactly like rss. Eventually I'll make an OAuth plugin that can work with rss-synd making it possible for it to scrape twitter's protected rss feeds again. Until then the best I can suggest is you use my twitter script at the url above combined with rss-synd. Then you get the best of both worlds.
