I may be confused on the Twitter Secret & Consumer keys... but should these values be stored in a hash?
In the unfortunate event of a database being hacked - wouldn't that give access to post on user's Twitter accounts?
I've actually been having troubles storing the tweets in the database. With using postgresql, I get this error:
: SELECT 1 AS one FROM "tweets" WHERE "tweets"."tweet_id" = 222042501954019328 LIMIT 1
ActiveRecord::StatementInvalid: PGError: ERROR: operator does not exist: character varying = bigint
I had to actually declare the table creation differently.
class CreateTweets < ActiveRecord::Migration
create_table :tweets, :id => false do |t|
t.integer :tweet_id, :limit => 8
per this article: http://moeffju.net/blog/using-bigint-columns-in-rails-migrations
Not sure if this is the best method - but currently working on my end!
