Test scaling back user-auth permissions to read only #3

Test whether read-only user-auth permissions is sufficient for creating the follow relationship to enable DM from @NOAAalerts to user.

The app doesn't DM or post on behalf of the user, only the app account - probably no reason to have DM-creation permission from user perspective.

Tested permissions models offered by twitter:

  1. Read Only: Allowed user login, but can't create follow relationship; Allowed DM of existing users in relationship
  2. Read/Write: Same as Read Only, allowed creation of follow relationship
  3. Read/Write/DM: All permissions from app and user - excessive.

I kept the api key at Read/Write permissions, as that is all that is necessary for app functionality.
