ttytter authorization problem solved

It was necessary to download and install all five packages using cpanp as 
root that had ttytter in their names in addition to the ttytter debian 
distribution package then run through the authorization process again.  To 
get a chance to get to lynx to authorize while ttytter is running hit 
control-z and then run lynx with the authorization url on the command 
line.  Once done copy the pin on your clipboard and then exit lynx and 
then type fg and if you've done everything right ttytter should show up on 
your screen again with you in the pin field so paste the pin then hit 
enter and you should get the authorization process done successfully after 
that.  The cpanp ttytter modules apparently all have an error in them but 
the modules will build successfully enough even with that error to work on 
the system afterwards.
