Can I use the Twitter API to follow people with my own user?


Dear Beloved Twitter,

I want to get a list of users that are talking about something. I do this by first getting a token with oauth2/token, and then doing the call search/tweets. All is fine, but, now I want to friend all these people. It tells me that friendship/create requires User-level authorization. Does this mean that I cannot authenticate my user with my application and friend all these people through the app?

All my best,
Aleksandra Czajka
