I'm developing an application in which I want to allow users to authenticate themselves with their twitter account. I need nothing more back from the authentication API than an ID that identifies the user; I don't want any access to any other account details or their tweets etc. In other words, I don't want read access. Is this possible?
It seems not, because the application registration page offers only read or read/write. If this is the case, are there any plans to support an "authenticate only" option for applications?
