If you're asking for login and password on your website to invoke use of the
API, you're going to need to do some work to continue having a functional
integration after our basic authentication method departs later this month.
This kind of frictionless API integration you seem to desire is best
accomplished using our @Anywhere platform
http://dev.twitter.com/anywhere/where the amount of steps to getting
valid user authorization and sending
tweets on their behalf is minimized and streamlined in comparison to a
robust OAuth 1.0a-based REST integration with callbacks.
