Very Basic Cron Job

Budget $5 - $10 USD
Bids 4
Average Bid $7

I need a cron job that will periodically launch a specific web page. I can setup the cron task in cpanel myself, but I need a PHP page that will perform the operation. I have a script that will post tweets to my Twitter account when my blog is updated. However, I must manually visit the below URL to activate the posting to Twitter. Therefore, I hope it is possible to create a cron task to load the page without me needing to visit it each time in the browser. The page is: [url removed, login to view] Please let me know your ideas in how we can design this before bidding. I will provide 10 excellent rating for the work.
