When we fetch updates for the pskmail twitter user we get all the tweets
from that user (pskmail) as well as all other users that user has
selected to get updates from. This means that if we strip the pskmail
user of followers then it will see all tweets done by pskmail users
only. All those tweets can be seen by other users, I follow the pskmail
user and I see all the tweets coming from there (using my own twitter
account whhen not posting through pskmail).
The current situation is not perfect but it works for now. One future
way could be to put oauth on the client itself but as that means we have
to put a secret key from twitter in the code there are issues with open
source that we need to solve first. I have seen a few leads from twitter
about a way to solve that for open source clients, still searching.
