I think the biggest improvement that can be made is not making the assumption
people are in a web browser environment. Yes, there are workarounds, but they
are kludgey by definition.

If nothing else, the login pages need to be made as *basic* as possible so
that devices such as basic mobile browsers can access them. For example, you
can't sign in to Twitter with Lynx. That sounds dumb, but if Lynx can sign
in, then *anything* can. That's not a problem with OAuth per se, that's a
problem with Twitter's UX. If you can swing that, I bet a lot of problems
can then be easily worked around.
