Hi Abraham,
     Yes, it should be automatic according to twitter api
documentation, but it is not in my case. :(

I'm still trying to figure out if I'm missing something/doing
something wrong. So I double checked now.

1. My Twitter test account's 'connections' settings page shows my app
having read and write access.
2. My statuses/update function uses only my app's oAuth consumer key
and the obtained access_token/secret values to update the status on
the test account.
3. Using the above function, I'm able to post status to the above
account. even tried giving a 'source=' param, but that resulted in
"from web".

One possible area to look at would be my app settings under
twitter.com/apps. There, I haven't checked the "Use Twitter for login"
option. Is this necessary to see the "from [MyApp]" under the source?

Status updated using oAuth, but still showing "from API":

Thanks in Advance,
