I am not sure if this should be located here. But developers like myself use end to end automation tests for ensuring the quality of our libraries.
At the moment there is no way of properly handling authentication flow tests.
Could you provide a title trusted user or any solution that enable us to not be limited by the classic security restrictions applied to apps in order to enabl us to have end to end tests around authentication.

For comparison Facebook has documentation available on how they allow this (https://developers.facebook.com/docs/facebook-login/testing-your-login-flow). Could Twitter provide something similar?
As developer of Twitter libraries we tend to create various end to end tests to automate the testing of the libraries.
When it comes to authentication, Twitter has various security systems to prevent bots from logging in instead of real users (captcha, revalidate inputs, phone validation...).
This security systems changes over time and mechanisms to go around them tend to work for 1 or 2 years and then have to be redone.
Could there be special accounts granted to very specific members where the authentication process can be tested.
It could be as simple as Twitter associating an app with an account. And this account can be used to test the authentication process without ever having to face any restrictions.

Can you please provide us with a bit more detail about this use case? It would help us if we better understand the ideal end-to-end functionality you are asking about, and also what you mean by "title trusted user" and "classic security restrictions" (and how they are currently not meeting your needs). Thank you!
