    Hi all

    Be interested to hear thoughts on what I think could be a security issue with the official Twitter applicaiont.

    I use the official Twitter application on my Lumia 930 (WP8.1 Denim update). I have 3 different Twitter accounts that I manage from the phone, a personal one and two related to websites I run.

    Just now, while "managing" my personal account, I received a message from an online retailer. I went into the app and loaded up my DM's only to see not just those sent to my personal account, but also DM's sent to my two additional accounts. Is this not a security issue? Surely I should only be able to see and reply to DM's using the account they were originally sent to?

    Example ;
    - someone sends a DM to my .pngWebSite account which is "managed" on my Windows Phone.
    - while reading DM's sent to my Click image for larger version.

ID:	95183PersonalAccount but to Click image for larger version. 

Name:	at.png 
Views:	17 
Size:	697 Bytes 
ID:	95183Website

    I have now removed Click image for larger version. 

Name:	at.png

ID:	95183Website account from the Twitter App and I can STILL see the DM's sent to it, when viewing Click image for larger version.

    Sorry for using Click image for larger version.

ID:	95183Website I have had to delete ALL accounts and add them back again. There must be some type of DM caching that takes place and remains in place even when you've removed the original recipient account from your phone.

    This is indeed "strange". Are you also going to feedback this to Twitter. I would like to hear the feedback from the. Anyway thanks for sharing.
