Tweetbot & Twitter tokens

An interesting side-note arisen from Tweetbots Twitter token problem:

If you go on the Twitter website and navigate to Settings -> Apps and hit the “Revoke access” button you are returning one of those tokens back to the app’s pool.
As of now, tokens don’t expire. If you log in to an application once that token is considered in use until you “Revoke access” to it.

Last week I proactively went and revoked access from a few applications I had associated with my Twitter account, mainly for security and privacy reasons, that I no longer use.

But now there is more reason to go and revoke applications. Help 3rd-party Twitter API developers out and clear out some old tokens you have on your account.

Hopefully Twitter will sort out its processes for allowing greater access to applications and developers once they hit that limit.
