i'm facing an equal scenario like the one above... i'm running a website where 2 to 3 users post status updates to that site which are posted then to twitteraccounts of the corresponding user. so basically i want to send updates to 2 or 3 twitter accounts via a php script. the users send their status updates via e-mails to the website and the script updates the website and posts to the twitter account of the user who has send in the status update. do i need to implement the whole OAuth process or can i use single tokens? thanks in advance!
