Greeting, I have an app that needs to update its' member's twitter status as well as status for other social-network sites in a scheduled manner. For which I found it very difficult to implement it using oAuth or xAuth, therefore I seek for advise from fellow developers.
Detail of the workflow: -End users sign up my service, and will be given to opportunity to store their twitter's access credentials. -End users update status at my service and schedule when it will be deliver -End users are limited to update their status once every 6 days. -To avoid spams, If the end user do not renewal their status after it has been sent by my service, it will not schedule for the next delivery (it does not allow end users to sent the same tweet as the previous one) -In a daily basis, the scheduler of my service will query each members in the system who are qualified to deliver tweet in that given day. Then it will mass update all qualifier's twitter status. Due to how my scheduler works in the background, I believe oAuth or xAuth may not be a proper solution to my problem. Since Twitter API no longer support Basic Auth, what other manners can I utilize so I can send tweet on behave of my members?
