Hey Ton, There was a similar discussion on this ML a few days ago: http://bit.ly/icFfcC We do not expire access_token (unless a user explicitly rejects you app) so you don't have to go through the whole OAuth dance once someone approved your app. Store your user's access_token and implement a

Hi There, Not sure what programming language or library you're working with, but I recommend getting familiar with the REST API itself so that you better understand the API that is providing you data rather than just the view presented by the API of the library you're using. Yes, the Twitter API

The last step of the OAuth dance (exchanging request_token for access_token) will give you an oauth_token and oauth_token_secret. You'll just have to sign your requests with those. Cf this page for more information: http://dev.twitter.com/auth#auth-request If you're not familiar with the concept
