We want to allow users to use Twitter on our set-top boxes. Some of them have no browser.
We wanted to use xAuth method, but its description vanished from Twitter website, although this submenu is still visible (see https://dev.twitter.com/oauth/overview). Is this method depracated?
The second thought was to use PIN-based authorization. We thought that we will show URL to users, so they can copy it to browser on their mobiles/computers, and type PIN back on STB. But we soon found out that this method is somehow useless, as the URL which user would need to manually type from TV screen to browser is a long alphanumeric hash. This way, user will never log in and post tweets with Twitter on our STBs.
Is there any other possibility for us? We can not use xAuth, we can not use PIN-based method efficiently. Does Twitter support browser-less machines at all?
