    I was looking around in the right area but I just found the exact answer:


    How do I get ?from [MyApp]? appended to updates sent from my API application?

    We now recommend developers use OAuth to perform authentication with the API. When applications use OAuth, Twitter automatically knows the source of status updates. We are therefore able to append source attribution (from "[MyApp]") to tweets. If you would like tweets from your application to recieve a source parameter, please register an application and implement OAuth authentication. We will automatically include your application as the source for any tweets sent from your application.
