It appears that user_timeline requires oAuth which is crazy. I have a Wordpress plugin which many users install on their own servers, so it doesn’t seem like creating a Twitter App as some of the documentation suggests will work, since I don’t want to distribute my tokens with the plugin. I also don’t want to have all the plugin users create their own app. Is there any way to access the public (i.e. NOT protected) timelines using the API? I guess I could always scrape the public timeline on twitter.com, but this seems ridiculous.
