You mean *from* your company's account? With OAuth, you don't need
username/password, because these are replaced by credentials. It's still
very much possible.

If you mean *to* your account, then you will need the credentials of the
users, like you normally would. This would be done via OAuth, or the
easy way which is called @Anywhere - simple javascript which you can put
on your website, allowing your users to Tweet from your website without
a lot of implementation work.

Just 2 options - a lot more is possible ;-)
