Aha! Perfect! Thankyou so much Marc.
I knew what I was looking for - the access token and secret. But on Twitter I was looking at https://twitter.com/oauth_clients/details/xxxxx - at that site I can only get consumer key/secret. dev.twitter.com shows the button I was looking for and Bob is indeed my Uncle.
