Can I use Twitter as my login platform?


#1

I would like to integrate my social network heavily with Twitter. Can I have users login exclusively via Twitter, as opposed to handling emails and passwords on my own server?

Just to clarify, the only Twitter data that will be stored on our server is their Twitter ID, which we plan to use to index their posts in our database, as well as appear in their login cookie to identify them. I’m not sure if this violates the rule about using Twitter Content to “maintain a separate status update or social network database or service”. Posts made on this site will also be posted to Twitter by default (though users can uncheck a box clearly visible below the post if they do not wish the content to also be published to Twitter, and can specify an alternative default behavior in their settings menu).
