Strange thing now is that when I enter in alt he twitter information and click on 'connect to twitter' it doesn't look like it is connecting.. the screen refreshes but all the text boxes are still open for edited and that connect to twitter button is still there. there's not disconnect button anymore.. this might be an upgrade thing but I dunno.
When I got to post a new post I get the standard 401 auth error messages telling me that it can't connet to the twitter servers:
One or more of your last posts has failed to send it's status update to Twitter. Your Tweet has been saved in your post custom fields, and you can re-Tweet it at your leisure.
401 Unauthorized: Authentication credentials were missing or incorrect.
Sorry! I couldn't get in touch with the Twitter servers to post your new blog post. Your tweet has been stored in a custom field attached to the post, so you can Tweet it manually if you wish!
Access level in twitter is set to: Read, write, and direct messages

WordPress is upgraded, plugin is upgraded, bottom line is the damn thing isn't working and I haven't a clue why not..
