You’ll want to use xAuth which is documented for twitter4j. Note that you can’t use xAuth without applying for access from Twitter.

xAuth access is restricted to approved applications. If your application is a desktop or mobile application that has no other recourse but to utilize xAuth, send a detailed request to https://support.twitter.com/forms/platform. Include the name of your application, the consumer key, the application ID (if available), and a summary of how xAuth is best-suited for your application.
