How send proof to a website that an Android user has a Twitter account?

Here’s the outline how Android can do that for Google:

That’s all mutually secure, yet it allows our website to accept data from an Android device without wondering who really sent it. See:

Now my question is how to do all that with Twitter. The only two scopes I can tease out of the documentation are “com.twitter.android.oauth.token” and “com.twitter.android.oauth.token.secret”. I don’t need the secret, or the channel-relative token.

And after I have the access_token, what simple Twitter web URI will return user info for it?
