    7979                                                To send tweets yourself, send them to the twitter_(yourusername) contact, or just write in the groupchat channel if you enabled that option.

     82                                        <para>
     83                                                Since Twitter now requires OAuth authentication, you should not enter your Twitter password into BitlBee. Just type a bogus password. The first time you log in, BitlBee will start OAuth authentication. (See <emphasis>help set oauth</emphasis>.)

     714                                This enables OAuth authentication for Twitter accounts. From June 2010 this will be mandatory.

     717                        <para>
     718                                With OAuth enabled, you shouldn't tell BitlBee your Twitter password. Just add your account with a bogus password and type <emphasis>account on</emphasis>. BitlBee will then give you a URL to authenticate with Twitter. If this succeeds, Twitter will return a PIN code which you can give back to BitlBee to finish the process.

     721                        <para>
     722                                The resulting access token will be saved permanently, so you have to do this only once.
