#FreeStuffFriday on twitterTweet
This thread has moved to my new site here: http://pyhacker.com/archive2010/freestufffriday-twitter/
So [@Sega] has been giving stuff away on twitter every friday in a promotion
they call [#FreeStuffFriday]. All you need to do to win is direct message
them with the key phrase at the right time. I wrote a script to help me win and
it's actually worked a handful of times. The hardest part is trying to estimate
the amount of time to wait to be the right respondent. Anyway, twitter just
flipped the OAuth switch so I updated my script to work with that. I'm attaching
it for whomever would like to use it. You need
easy_install works for both of those) and the
modules which I'm also attaching to this post.

To use this script, first you'll need to follow [@Sega] on twitter. Next, you need to register a twitter app by going here: http://dev.twitter.com/apps/new.
After that, fill in the consumer_key and consumer_secret variables in the script.
Run the script! Good luck!
