Our company has a weather information platform where we set up weather stations and weather cameras at schools and universities across the US. Each weather station gets its own Facebook page and Twitter account that gets automatically updated throughout the day with useful weather alerts and bulletins as well as educational content to help build weather literacy. Our program was recognized in Florida as the winner of the Innovation Award at the 2016 Florida Governor’s Hurricane Conference and our real-time social media alerts and bulletins were an important part of the preparations and response to Hurricanes Hermine, Matthew, Irma, Florence, and Michael.
We used to simply create a new Twitter account and manage the API credentials for each account in our database for automated posting but that model has changed with the recent implementation of the developer accounts.
I read in another forum post that it is possible to have one developer account that is able to post to multiple twitter usernames but I am struggling with understanding how that would work.
It mentioned you’d use the consumer key and consumer secret key of the developer account combined with the access token and access token secret of the account you were trying to act on behalf of.
My understanding was in order to even have an access token and access token secret, the account needs to be associated with an active developer account.
We had up until now been attempting to have a separate developer account for each new Twitter username associated with a new weather station but have quickly ran into a road block.
I’d welcome any assistance in helping us get over this hurdle.
