Foursquare fail (211.2) - Mark's Journal
Foursquare fail (211.2)
[I'm trying to get help correcting a venue's Twitter account, which inexplicably shows my personal account instead of the venue's. Better check yours.]

> I just disconnected your twitter. Now, when managing your page, click on Tools,
> scroll about halfway down the page, and reconnect using your business twitter.
> Make sure you're not logged into your personal twitter while doing this.

Don't be silly, Melanie. I am always logged into my personal Twitter account.

I as a superuser have long been able to add or correct Twitter accounts for venues. I as the manager for this venue should always be able to add or correct ANY information for this venue.

If your site ignores the information put in a venue's Twitter field, polls the browser for the currently logged-in Twitter account, and inserts that account name into a venue's Twitter field WITHOUT ASKING THE USER, and WITHOUT AUTHORIZING THE ACCOUNT VIA TWITTER'S API, that's a monumental bug and a monumental mis-use of the Twitter API. Please see to it that this is fixed at once.
