    New to programming but with a decent handle on the core concepts. Going to teach myself to code and, as a first goal, I'd like to create a simple app for my PC that allows me to enter a username and password and a tweet, then click SEND and have it use the twitter API to post the tweet in question to the account I entered.

    for a beginner is one programming language better than another for this task?

    I would think that Visual Basic could do the trick, but I haven't used any API's in my simple programs...

    its much easier to solve such issues by web-based scripting using some web-gui instead of classic QT-like GUI. Anyway, console is much usable for developer.
    And of course if its your first script, you should first know in which sphere wold you like to work. if you choose some OS-applications development, you can start with Java, C, Delphi, etc (you can learn the difference, using Wiki). If you choose some kind of web-applications development, you can start with such languages like python, perl, php, ruby, JS, etc...

    But it doesnt matter, which language will you choose to start. perhaps, it's the most popular and the most pointless question of newbies.

    VB.Net cause there's tons of support and many source codes for the simplest tasks. Including tweeting using the API.
