I've got a couple of my own apps (run from a linux shell) that tweet for various purposes (i.e. automatic tweets of today's weather data on my own twitter account). These apps need to be able to tweet on behalf of several twitter accounts, all of which I own. These worked very well with basic authentication. I didn't have to worry about storing customers' passwords because I have no customers. It's all my own stuff.
Is there a simpler method to use than the full OAuth solution? I read the info here: http://dev.twitter.com/pages/auth_overview I can't tell if any of the methods described fit my situation. Bottom line is that I have no customers, no third parties using my apps. Is there an ideal authentication method for this situation? -- Twitter developer documentation and resources: http://dev.twitter.com/doc API updates via Twitter: http://twitter.com/twitterapi Issues/Enhancements Tracker: http://code.google.com/p/twitter-api/issues/list Change your membership to this group: http://groups.google.com/group/twitter-development-talk
