Returning Twitter user_name easily


I’m setting up an advert that uses the Klout API to find if a user has above a certain Klout score and display stuff accordingly, I have this working just fine.

However, in order to look up someone’s score via the Klout API I need to have their Twitter screen name. Is there an easy way to request just that? I don’t want ANY of their information, access to their account, nothing like that. I just need the logged in screen name.

I’m struggling with using the OAuth right now, and would like to just not bother…


No there’s no means to transparently find this information. You would need to ask the user for it.
