I’ll often want to Tweet something, but feel the need to explain further in a second Tweet. But something in that will need explaining, so it occurs to me that I really need a blog post. But then I realize I should probably post this as 2 or more separate posts to isolate ideas and keep them self contained and just link between them. Then I realize I’ve got work to do, and drop it till I have time … … which never comes and my thought dies having never lived. *Even this one tweet expanded into a blog...

I’m noticing a lot of Twitter tools requiring the user to enter their Twitter user id and password to use the tool. These tools obviously need the users’ credentials to access the Twitter API and act on behalf of the user.
But am I the only one who is uncomfortable with this? I mean, isn’t the first rule of passwords not to give them out to anybody? Isn’t it?!?!?
Instead it’s become the acceptable practice to enter it into every app requesting it! Correct me if I’m wrong …..
