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?
