  options = {x_auth_mode: 'reverse_auth'}
  url = 'https://api.twitter.com/oauth/request_token'
  auth_header = Twitter::Headers.new(self, :post, url, options).oauth_auth_header.to_s
  HTTP.headers(authorization: auth_header).post(url, params: options).to_s
end

#token(options = {}) ⇒ String Also known as: bearer_token

Allows a registered application to obtain an OAuth 2 Bearer Token, which can be used to make API requests on an application's own behalf, without a user context.

Only one bearer token may exist outstanding for an application, and repeated requests to this method will yield the same already-existent token until it has been invalidated.

Examples:

Generate a Bearer Token

client = Twitter::REST::Client.new(consumer_key: 'abc', consumer_secret: 'def')
bearer_token = client.token
