Twitter has distinguished itself as a "minimally invasive" social
network. The API gives you the ability to replicate and build on the
communication model appreciated by Twitter users.

It's about brevity, it's lightweight and of course you can reach your
followers inbox by direct messaging, if the user accepts email

Meanwhile, verify_credentials gives you what you need to set up their
account and log them in when they return. If you need a user's email
address, just ask them for it.
