hi there -
here’s the scenario:
- sign into a 3rd party site using twitter
- 3rd party site launches twitter sign-in dialog in a new window https://api.twitter.com/oauth/authorize
- user completes sign-in
- twitter redirects back to 3rd party site, pop-window is closed
currently, if you try to switch twitter accounts while viewing twitter’s sign-in page / dialog, you have to click your avatar then “sign out”. the “sign out” link launches yet another window. this breaks the flow as you now have two twitter windows - one w/ the original sign-in (typically as a pop-up) and the other with your new sign-in prompt.
so a website which tries to automatically close the original pop-up when the user successfully signs-in can no longer do so.
