Thanks for getting back to me. I don't believe @anywhere is of use to
me. My plugin is for updating a site's Twitter account when a new
article is published (Textpattern is a CMS). The site's administrator
would have knowledge of the username/password for the relevant Twitter
account (that are stored by the site); however, other editors/staff
using it would not necessarily have access to this information. For
the majority of deployments of this plugin it is just not possible for
this information to be realistically shared. I am not looking for a
way for site visitors to update their individual Twitter accounts,
just the site to update its related Twitter account. Does this make
sense and is it still doable with the coming changes?
