I'm working on a project where I just need to accumulate information
from users.  Particularly the number of followers.  I can do this just
fine with cURL and providing a username and password for
authentication.  The key is that the script can run without any
interaction from a human being.  The script will run every night at
midnight to gather that one stat from all of my clients customers.

I don't fully understand oAuth but it kind of sounds like I will have
to have a user interaction to allow permission to the system.  Is this
the case.  After August 16 will there still be a way to directly
access and gather data?

Thank you for your help!
