Limiting app permission to post tweets only, not "See who you follow…" or "Update your profile…"


I’ve got OAuth working in my app now after following and tweaking the tutorial @ However, I only need my app to be able to post tweets for a given user, and not to update their profile or see who they follow. I’m concerned that a potential user might see that my app could do these things and be scared off. Is there any way to fine-tune the permissions of my app?

Any help is always appreciated.



Hi David,

There’s no means to further permission levels of an application more granular than Read-only, Read-Write, or Read-Write + direct messages.
