I’d like to confirm a twitter user is who they claim to be, but do not need access to their tweets, DMs, or any other information.
The sign in with twitter API does more than I need, I don’t really want to read a user’s tweets or other information, and I don’t want users to have to grant access, I just want the twitter API to confirm they are who they claim to be…
I’ve looked at the following, but am still not clear whether this will do what I want…
Ideally I’d like the following:
- user clicks on a button, and are taken to the twitter site for login
- user enters twitter name and password
- return with a pass/fail and the twittername
