  2. @blaine in a kind of cack handed way. i'd prefer a "read/write but no tweeting" perm.

  3. @jwheare agreed – it's far from complete, but definitely steps in the right direction. Their auth dialog is also MUCH better as of late.

  5. @blaine also, it seems like all mobile clients will have to get their users to reauth. also, i think even the official client uses xauth…

  7. @jwheare xAuth is bullcrap. The official [android] client asks me for my password every time I'm on a new network (i.e., frequently).

  8. @blaine sounds like a buggy app. isn't it supposed to just exchange the password for a permanent token?

  9. @dracos Not widely publicised yet, but we fixed this too, so apps can now change reauth levels. See x_auth_access_type: dev.twitter.com/doc/post/oauth…

  11. @dracos @t has an experimental implementation that demonstrates it. Hopefully he can link you to it.
