OAuth is a relatively new concept to me and I’m having a really hard time understanding.
I’ve got an app that used to run many times a day grabbing data via Twitter’s API. Now Twitter requires authentication my data scrape no longer works.
I need to implement a way for my Application/Server to become authorized to run all the time.
All of the Oauth examples I see require a logged in user clicking “Log In With Twitter”.
I’m looking for some direction on how I can authorize my app once and let it continue to run as desired. I briefly read about PIN based authentication but not sure if that’s what I want. In addition I can’t find out how to use any of the popular PHP Libraries for PIN based authentication.
Any direction is appreciated.
