I'm trying to figure out if this is possible, and if so, what is the
proper way to use the API to achieve this.

I have a social networking site, where users post comments or news to
their micro-blog or wall. I would love to allow them to have to option
of having their posts tweeted automatically. ( I would 'crop' their
posts so they would fit and then include a link back to the full post,
I imagine. )

I imagine they would insert their username, but how could my site
authenticate them once so the site can officially send the tweet to
their Twitter status? Obviously I don't want to store their password,
or even ask them for it. So there must be another way of validating
them at first.

Any tips or pointers here? Thanks so much,
