Just a short message: It might be good to review 3rd party access to social network accounts every month or two.

I practically never use Twitter, and thought I might have one or maybe even two applications permitted to read stuff. Turns out I had 6, from which 3 had read and write access and another one even direct messages access (not that I know what that is, but it seems even more personal than read and write access).
I revoked some permissions now. Not that I suspected abuse, but minimizing the risk never hurts.
