One of my offerings runs the same way. Click on your app, and get your access keys for the user. Make the app your business name with a link to your business site. Make the twitter account name ... your business name. Instead of getting back keys for the user, you already have them. Use those instead no need to OAuth manually via the web.

More info: The communication between my web app and Twitter is always
one-way. The app will send updates to the Twitter account. It will
never need to read anything from the Twitterverse. I thought this
would make the interaction easier, but does not seem to be the case.
The TwitterAPI seems to always need direct user interaction to send
updates. In my situation, there IS NO user.

I have a problem doing something that I thought would be pretty easy.
I have created a Twitter account for my business. I have a java web
application running on my server. I want the java app send tweets
using the business' ID when certain events occur on the system.

I am using Twitter4J v2.1.7 SNAPSHOT to handle the OAuth and message
passing.

I have been able to force tweets out of the system using code built of of their OAuth example. However, it requires manual interaction (going
to the Authorize URL, click "Approve", copy PIN, paste into console.)
It really seems like I am missing something here. I thought there
would be an easy way for the app to send messages using a specific
Twitter account. (There is only one Twitter ID that will EVER be used
to send messages from the app.)

Can anyone tell me how this is supposed to work?

Thanks,
Thom
