We are building an site that will perform a search on Twitter. We are currently using the Search API here: https://dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1/get/search with the http://search.twitter.com/search.format URL endpoint. We want to start using the v1.1 API to future proof and it seems from this page that authentication is required: https://dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1.1/get/search/tweets
We don’t want to be authenticating the visitors to our site, but rather we just want to authenticate the app making the requests. But it appears this isn’t available yet from this page: https://dev.twitter.com/docs/auth/oauth#user-context
My question is what should we do to keep using the Search API? If we try to use 1.1 we will need to authenticate, but we can’t authenticate an app. If we use 1.0 we will have to update the site to use 1.1 at some point in the very near future. Am I missing an option or a detail?
