Being a Digital Marketer I have come across many third party app because I will not like to create new accounts every time I land on websites that would offer services to increase my post reach on Twitter with that new applications and simple give third party access to these new unknown apps. But forget to revoke access later to them.
Why you should revoke access to third party Twitter applications?
When you are using Twitter profile to login to other websites you should know that you are sharing access them to your timeline, contacts and everything that is happening on your Twitter profile.
So most of the time Twitter would send alerts about resetting the password until then their accounts would be blocked for malicious attempts to login.
Even I have received these alerts from Twitter because I don’t keep those websites listed regularly, due to which it will be difficult to know that I have given access to many sites and some of them may use to spam my profile with tweets.
Because users tend to forget about those services that he / she would had used to explore or experiment on their services.
So to avoid above consequences you should revoke access to third party services.
