- Make sure that you use the web interface on a PC, laptop or tablet so that it uses the twitter oauth protocol. If you are connecting to twitter through the Foursquare mobile app, it will ask you to type in your twitter login and password, which is more of a security risk.
- When you connect Foursquare account to Twitter, the default setting is to flood your stream with check-ins, Mayorships and new badge award notices. These should all be switched off in your privacy settings, unless this type of activity is a main focus of your twitter account.
N.B. When adjusting your privacy settings on Foursquare, ensure that your contact information settings are appropriate to your account. Personally, I have ‘let my friends see my phone number’ and ‘let my friends see my email address’ disallowed; and I have not shared my phone number with Foursquare.
