How do I get the oauth/access_token for application only. My application is a dashboard which retrieves the number of subscribers per user. My application does not have username and password because of this. It only show statistics not individual tweets. How can I get the information back. Since 1.1 I lost connection. I tried to use the key and secret from my dev app and was told I couldn’t use that one.

You need to use the oauth_token and oauth_token_secret returned from the
oauth/access_token call instead of the one in your app’s settings in dev.twitter.com
