I have a client who needs the following scenario: - Many users, potentially thousands or tens of thousands, will sign up to receive a daily DM from the client's site. With a limit of 250 DMs per day, the client wants to use each user's account to send a DM to that user.
- These users will give the app permission to send DMs to their account through OAuth. - The app will use each user's OAuth credentials to send 1 DM to that user each day. So, John signs up and allows DMs with OAuth. John's OAuth tokens are used to have John's account send a DM to John. Question 1: Is it technically possible to send a DM to @john using the OAuth tokens for @john. Question 2: Is this model limited to 250 DMs per day? If the answer to question 1 is yes, it seems that this is really just 1 DM per account per day. Is this true, or is the app's account used to total up the DMs for the limit. Answer to expected comments: yes, I know the client could use email. They want to use DMs. They want this to be a Twitter system and feel that DMs let them stay within Twitter. -- Twitter developer documentation and resources: https://dev.twitter.com/doc API updates via Twitter: https://twitter.com/twitterapi Issues/Enhancements Tracker: https://code.google.com/p/twitter-api/issues/list Change your membership to this group: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/twitter-development-talk
