How show 'confirm your tweet' dialog before programmatic tweeting?


I implemented code that allows our web site users to successfully tweet to their twitter stream from our web site.

But I can’t figure out how to tell the Twitter API to display what I have seen other website do that allow their users to tweet:
display a ‘pre-tweet confirmation’ Twitter dialog box that allows the user to edit/commit or even back out of the tweet.

Where in the API is this ‘confirm your tweet before committing’ dialog box covered – I can’t find it.

I have got the tweet part working – post(‘statuses/update’, array(‘status’ => ‘Yep we’re tweeting now, albeit with no confirm dialog!’));
(I’m using a library written by Abraham to do the initial OAuth etc.).

Where can I discover how to compel Twitter to raise the ‘confirm your Tweet’ dialog that I’ve seen in other web sites that allow tweeting?


If you’re using server-side coding to submit the Tweet, then you need to develop a preview box like this yourself – the API doesn’t directly provide this feature.
