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
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 ;-)
