BBBS Info on Twitter

Created a Twitter account for the BBBS Info system:  BBBSInfo

Plan to put at least some of the announcements I already do, also available via twitter.

Installed libnet-twitter-lite-perl, bti, & twidge so could start testing from the command line and/or scripts.

Basic Auth is no longer supported by twitter:
~$ bti --dry-run | "System is online"
-bash: System is online: command not found
Twitter no longer supports HTTP basic authentication.
Both consumer key, and consumer secret are required for bti in order to behave as an OAuth consumer.

Reference note in README.Debian,-OAuth-and-bti.html
