Is it against policy to use @Anywhere as a means to logout a currently OAuth-authenticated user?


#1

I am using OAuth and REST for my client’s site. Due to anticipated “heavy usage”, when a user visits, they must authenticate via OAuth to tweet a comment to my client’s tweet (obviously). Therefore @Anywhere will not do. However, is it against protocol to use @Anywhere to re-authenticate the user (upon a courteous prompt for them to logout completely) and then call @Anywhere’s logout method?

They are totally different APIs and the logout method’s purpose isn’t to log users out of Twitter – it’s to log them out of a context with the hosting site.
