Overbearing read/write permisions


Hey all,

Using twitter integration in our mobile application, and the client has noticed that the oAuth login dialog box seems to request a very large ammount of permissions when logging in.

Read Tweets
See Followed and Follow new people
Update profile
Post Tweets for you.

To some users this might seem like a very scary amount of permissions, especially for an app where we just want to post tweets on their behalf and nothing else.

Is there anyway to set the login dialog to not request these additional permissions? As far as I can see on the app settings there is no “in-between” for read VS read/write? or are these simply the default hard coded permissions that it requests and there’s no way of changing them?

Thanks for any input
