How to Revoke Access to prevent Commun.it from spamming people on Twitter

This is an UNOFFICIAL INSTRUCTION GUIDE on how to revoke access to the social media tool Commun.it.

I am *not* a representative of twitter, just a fellow user who has seen many complaints against @commun_it for years.

Following this guide will assist you in preventing your twitter account from unknowingly spamming followers and filling up your twitter profile with unwanted nonsense.

This will block Commun.it’s app from all access to your account. To use their service (re-enabling spam), you will need to authorize it again by signing back in to Commun.it
