Authentication - Twitter asks to authorize app every time.

Jul 30, 2015 at 7:08 PM

working in an app and after implementing succesfully the login, someone asked me why the app keeps asking me, when I redirect to twitter, that I should authorize the app again, if according to the documentation, Twitter should only ask the user once to authorize the app. From there, if you go again to that site, Twitter should only redirect you to the callback, but no ask you again to "re-authorize" the app.

Can you tell me if this is normal or not and why?
In case isn't normal, can you give me some assistance to fix it?

Now that you mention it, I clearly understand that the authenticate endpoint is missing in the Tweetinvi library.

Up until now I was storing the user credentials information in the database against their web session.

When the user sign in with Twitter I store the credentials information in the database. If the user with the same session already signed in, I then reused the credentials for this session.

I will have a look into 'authenticate' and get back to you.
