Twitter permissions



On the Twitter authentication page I see the permissions as shown in the screenshot below. I am ONLY interested and using the “email address”. Is there a way to hide/remove the highlighted permissions in the screenshot, basically the ones I am not using?



There is no way to modify the permissions screen, no. If you do not require write access to the user’s account(s), you might consider reducing your current scopes to just Read, and Request email address. That would cut down on this list by removing “follow new people; update your profile; post Tweets for you”.


Thanks @andypiper. How do I reduce my current scope? is it done while setting up my developer account or it can be done programmatically?


You can modify application permissions in the Developer Portal. Select Apps from the drop-down next to your avatar, then the Details button on your app, then the Permissions tab, and click Edit.
