Each app can only have one "from application" name, unlike Basic
Authentication. This may be limiting. Also, each app has two sets of
keys, the consumer keys (app keys) and oauth keys (user keys).
The user keys which you get by default are the user keys which belong to
the account which owns the app. This does not mean that you can't get
more keys, but you will need to go through the so-called oauth dance.
I can't help you with that (never had to implement it, I'm a desktop
developer) but I'm sure that http://dev.twitter.com can help you with it.
