Revoking 3rd Party Apps Access to Twitter

Revoking 3rd Party Apps Access to Twitter 

Every time you log into a website with your Twitter username you allow that site to access, not only your Twitter account, but also some of the information you hold there.

If there is an option I will always log in using Twitter over Facebook as Facebook holds so much more information about us.

I happily use Twitter as a log in option, but just know that it does leave your account slightly vulnerable.  If anything happens to the site – it gets hacked for instance – that does leave you open to someone being able to access your account through there.

I have never had any trouble with that but just wanted to let you know. 

It is partly why I go in and revoke access every now and then to all the places that I had authorised my Twitter account as a log in or access option.

It is really quick and easy to revoke access.  I take you through it in a couple of minutes on this video.

Zip on over to Twitter and unhook all those sites you never use anymore.
