Sorry Dave,
But there's no way I'm giving AIUK the authority over my Twitter account that it is requiring. WAY too draconian for my tastes, I wouldn't let any external source have that kind of power.
Facebook is a bit more benign, but I still don't see any need to connect to it.
I've always preferred to keep my online activities 'air-gapped' & under my own control.

Not a problem :) It's just there if it's needed :D

Just out of interest, what information did it request? As far as I'm aware it doesn't give AIUK any authority over either FB or Twitter accounts.

Everything!
Including the ability to make posts in my name.
Gimme a mo & I'll post a screenie.
Thanks LoN, that sort of stuff certainly wan't there when set up!!!!! Or... just thinking, that may be the default Twitter message that's spat out when an app. request goes in. AIUK has absolutely no authority to do anything to or on your Twitter account; but I'm guessing other apps. do!

That sounds like the standard app permissions thing for Twitter, that all current Twit users have already agreed to: address book, photos, posts etc etc etc. If you use Twitter on your phone you've already clicked ok to all of that and a lot more, including use of microphone!

For those sort of reasons I do not & will not have an active smartphone, although I have a 'featurephone' in the car for emergencies. My PC has no microphones or cameras permanently attached & no way I'm EVER allowing Alexa into my home. People are too quick to sign away their privacy for 'free stuff' imo!

my only phone is an old clam phone, which I seem to keep forgetting to take with me. people seem to either think its weird your not available to them whenever they choose or are annoyed that I don't answer within 3 nano secs!
