Suggestion to Twitter about "Connect your account" messaging to end users

Leveraging Twitter Single Sign On/OAuth is great. However, I have a suggestion for the wording of the message to Twitter end users see on the “Connect your account” page.

The “Connect your account” page currently says: “Blank will be able to see your email, read Tweets from your timeline etc…”

I think it would be better to say “Blank will be able to see your email address, read Tweets from your timeline etc…”

Where it currently says “Blank will be able to see your email” is confusing to users. Some users may think the 3rd party app can actually read the contents of their inbox. If it was updated to say “Blank will be able to see your email address” its a lot less confusing.

Background Notes: Blank refers to a standard 3rd party app where the app can: Read Tweets from your timeline, etc, and see your email address.
