I am looking to integrate Twitter into a new website and would just like to check if the following is possible and where would be the best place to look:
The intention is to be able to allow users to tweet from their account on my website. To achieve this they would need to grant permission for my twitter app to access and update their account. This being the case, I would need to store some manner of authentication token against each users account to tell the api call which twitter account to update/tweet to,
I have had a look at oAuth but as far as I could see, it was specifically for me to integrate my own twitter account into my new app… not allow multiple people to use it.
I’m sure the functionality I am looking for must be available, I’m just not sure where to look.
I should also mention that the authentication between website user and twitter account would ideally be permanent, rather than ask them to authorise every time they tweeted.
