Shoutcast Now Playing to Twitter
We used this script for quite some time and it’s a great way to tell your followers on Twitter what songs you are playing on your station.
It takes the now playing info from a Shoutcast v1 server and posts it on Twitter.
Please note: This version only works with Shoutcast v1 servers.
Basic instructions: What is required to use the script? (A Brain)
1) A valid Twitter account.
2) Setup an application & generate API keys from dev.twitter.com
3) A PHP enabled web server with an open @fsock connection
4) The The Twitter script files
5) Unzip the folder, Enter all your API keys in twitter.php along with your Shoutcast server details
6) Save & Upload all the required files to your server/website host.
Open the webpage in a browser to point to the twitter.php page (example: http://yoursite/twitter/twitter.php)
If all has gone to plan you should see this.
If you have your own VPS setup a cron job to post to twitter as often as required

If you don’t have your own PHP web server then you can quite easily set one up on your own computer using a program called WAMP or just plain old Apache.
Search Google for more information on “How to setup a web server”
That is all there is to it. It’s not that difficult to setup.

P.S: We have no idea how to install the v2 Twitter script files that something you’re probably going to have to figure out for yourself. It can’t be anymore difficult than the v1 scripts.
