How to detect if a user has authorized or not authorized your application with account/verify_credentials


Lately, I’ve been working on a Sign in with Twitter PHP script. What I want to do is I want my code to detect wether the user has already authorized my application or not. I’ve heard I can do something like this with account/verify_credentials, but how? For example in Taylor Singletary is stating that “Use account/verify_credentials before posting to determine if you still have the ability to make calls on that user’s behalf.” This is an example of what I want to accomplish:

if(user has registered with application) {
// If user HAS authorized application
} else {
// If user has NOT authorized application

How can I accomplish something like this? Any help would be highly appreciated.


The easiest way is probably to do an authenticated call to and then store the result in a variable that you can in your if/else logic.

Your application will get a HTTP 200 OK response if authentication was successful, or a 401 if not.

See [node:14] for all the details.
