Short version, the only thing that an app needs permission to read is your DMs, so that’s the whole point of the process. The problem is that Twitter’s security model around this is too complex and nobody but developers understands that. We need an even simpler approach to getting user consent to these sort of things.

It’s not their fault but more and issue of practice I suspect.

Nevertheless the Allstate advice to avoid shifting your package, as it causes a distraction, is sound.
I mean, at least one hand is off the wheel at such a time and your mind is most likely ruing your choice of irksome underwear rather than concentrating on the SUV-driving moron about to cut you up.
