Why does ThreadStart need so many permissions?

Threadstart.io Twitter permissions

Twitter knows only three types of permissions:

  • Read
  • Read & write
  • Read, write & DM

ThreadStart requires write permissions in order to submit your threads. Unfortunately, the above permission types do not allow for fine grained control. Along with the ability to write, it automatically includes a number of additional allowances that we do not require, but also cannot unselect.

ThreadStart only uses what we need, to do what you ask us to.
