I’m using a social locker plugin which requires people to tweet in order to unlock content on my website. I’m concerned about the number of permissions Twitter needs to make the plugin work.
“This application will be able to:
- Read Tweets from your timeline.
- See who you follow, and follow new people.
- Update your profile.
- Post Tweets for you.”
Some of these are misleading and I don’t think I would agree to these permissions. Why would I let the app follow new people, update my profile and post tweets “for me”? It sounds way too scary.
Is this standard when you give an app read and write permissions?
Thanks in advance for any guidance.
