why do you need to ask for permission to:
- publish tweets
- update my profile
A sentence saying "we'll not publish anything" is not enough. Better dont ask for permission in the twitter API or explain why do you need it.
Thus, to create private lists on your account they need the permission to write.
Their architecture is described here: https://github.com/agermanidis/Antipersona/blob/master/ARCHI...
I welcome people making applications such as these that show us just how public information is and how little we truly appreciate that fact (I assume many will find this creepy).
> show us just how public information is
Information we choose to broadcast to the world on a platform designed for broadcasting to the world.
> find this creepy
Strangers can see my public list of who I follow, and can see the public posts of those people I follow. The people I follow can choose to make their posts not public if they wish, and I can choose to make my profile not public so that strangers can't see who I follow, if I wish. Not creepy, really.
Too bad is a mobile app.
I did think the way Google handled search was the best idea in the world, so go figure.
