Actually yaf do tweets but NOT automatically. The user can tweet a topic or a single message
Thank you tha_watcha. If that is the only scenario, why dont we either (a) default back to old ways in which the tweet button in YAF 1.9.6 worked (open pop up window and twitter will ask them if they want to tweet) or (b) Use the simple tweet button which is now used probably in millions of websites (with same functionality).
I am concerned that if forum is hacked (weak password, asp.net bug, iis bug, etc), the hacker can have access to lots of members personal details (by adding a new page on website and pulling personal tweets, etc).
As you may have heard, about 30,000 vbulletin sites were hacked few weeks ago. The hacker was able to create admin account using the install folder.
Hence it would be very helpful to limit the data we ask from users (a) that we do not really need and (b) provide exact same functionality with just a simple tweet button.
Many people would not use any forum which asks so many twitter permissions just for registration/login.
