Outbounding Twitter Login Grant Access to Private DM's?
I've not logged in for a while but just saw this when I tried logging in via Twitter
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.
- Access your direct messages.
I understand this is Twitter's login but to the best of my knowledge with their API you can grant access to some or all things.
Having access to a members Direct Messages (private messages) on Twitter, for me, is a big no no. A serious violation of ones privacy.
While I understand that Outbounding may not be aware of this and I'm not implying Outbounding is trying to gain access to users private twitter messages I cannot allow such access. It simply violates my own privacy and anyone I DM with who has no say on this.
As such I would ask for clarification from Outbounding on why this has happened? What/if anything is being done about it? And what are the alternatives should one not want to login via twitter? Does creating an email login not associate itself with a the same users Twitter Login?
Looking forward to your reply
(EDIT) I tried to make an email / password login instead of a twitter login but there does not seem to be an option to do this when you are already logged in.
